So, this is funny. Because I said so. Or maybe just because I work in the mail room.
That was featured at the USM film festival tonight - much fun. As usual, there were some duds, but also some very well-done, funny, and/or amusing films. And we got to dress up, which was even funner.
Speaking of the mail room, we were bored today, and so we came up with these. A lot of them are probably applicable to college mail rooms anywhere...
You know you work in the USM mail room when:
-You're up to date on all the news and celebrity gossip, and yet you don't have a subscription to anything.
-Certain people's names constantly strike you with recognition, and then you realize you don't know any of them.
-You laugh when you see someone struggling with their mailbox, because you always get your mail from the other side.
-You know where random people (and all friends) live, and you don't find that creepy at all.
-Facebook is a part of the daily routine.
-You can recognize every current credit card offer just by looking at the envelope.
-Two words: work equity
-The radio is your friend.
-You used to be afraid of heavy lifting, but you aren't anymore.
-Your level of creativity rises when you discover that anything can be made out of a cardboard box.
-You know where every department is located, even though you haven't been to half of them.
-You realize how lucky you are to not have many of the last names you come across.
-Whenever you see any kind of yellow card, you can only think of one thing: packages.
-You know exactly how many people on campus share either your first or last name.
-You become REALLY annoyed when people layer envelope flaps.
-You can never have enough pens, and the ones you do have always seem to disappear into a vortex somewhere.
- Paper clips have their own special super powers and you are drawn to them no matter what you do.
