Sarah: Can I help you with your package?

During my Christmas break from school, I have returned home to my parent's home and have been working at a UPS Store during the holiday rush. I may be a geek, but I like the following things about my job:
We have these tape guns that allow for ease in box packing. Imagine your packing tape at home. Now add the little plastic dispenser, which is nice, because it keeps the end of the tape from sticking to the roll and has a blade with which to sever the piece you are using from the rest of the roll. These tape guns are one billion times better than that dispenser. I love them. I like to tape things...
When I stock our shelves with shipping and office supplies, I price items. Gotta love that pricing labeling thingey.
I type an address into the computer. It spits out a label. I affix the label to the package. Everything is so fast and efficient and fabulously organized.

I realize I may still be in the honeymoon phase of my job, but maybe I just like organizing things, okay?? Another point of interest is that I've become friends with the delivery guys that pick up our packages. One of them, however, told me I looked like Kelly Osborne, which no one in the store agreed with. Thank goodness. I think it's the short hair. Anyway, when I didn't seem thrilled with this "compliment," he was deeply apologetic (more than was necessary, actually, considering I wasn't offended), and now reiterates how wrong he was every time he comes in while I'm working. In penitent butt-kissing, he's remarked on the absurdity of his comment, because I'm "so much better looking than Kelly Osbourne." I have no response to this.
Anyway, this is what I've been up to. It's been nice to see some of you Salt Lake City friends while I've been in town, but I wish I had more time to spend with you. Logan friends, I miss you, blah blah blah, and we'll all be together again soon. More blogging to follow Christmas.
