Napans tried to get holiday packages in the mail Friday, but it was tough going, witnesses said.

Long lines and short staff had some people, arms full of packages to mail, walking out in frustration.

According to witnesses, only two windows were open at the post office, and no extended hours were posted.

Still, some people stayed cheerful, such as a young girl who sang Christmas carols in line.

The other night I didn't get out of the post office until 5:50 pm. Why? Because EVERYONE in front of me (I was last in line) was sending packages overseas and had no idea on how to fill out the proper forms. So when they got to the window they had to start all over again. That's what held up the line.

I, myself, feel for the postal workers. The people who work in our downtown post office are all nice folks. Is anyone thinking how it must be difficult for them to work with unprepared, crabby customers? I've seen some grumpy people be really mean to them. They're supposed to close at 5 ..... Here's to them and the good job they do!!!!

We all need to feel for the American worker because he has become the enemy.Listen to the media,people and everybody else make him out the most evil person because he just wants a little benefits for his short life.Everybody says when somebody goes on strike or wants a living wage that they are over paid or how dare they hurt big daddy.All company's and corporations are making record profits by working people like slaves and not enough employes.When I hear people go after the American worker it makes you think where are we headed except to collapse as a Nation.
