Postal worker was courteous, helpful

Last Saturday I arrived at the Post Office sometime after closing. I should have known closing was noon.

I wanted to get a birthday card to my son who starts his sixth week in Marine Corps Boot Camp before his 19th birthday on July 15.

Sensing my dismay, one of your employees, who was likely on her way home, asked me if she could help. When given an explanation she immediately offered to ensure my birthday card was sent to Jake. Note, I paid the postage ensuring no postage violation.

The very sensitive postal employee is named Karen. I neglected to ask for her last name. Assuming there are several Karen’s, she wears red framed glasses.

I’m a former (if you are ever former) Marine who turned 18 in Marine Boot Camp. So it was especially important to me and I believe my son to receive a birthday card while in boot camp.

Adding on, I’ve always been impressed by the courteous, helpful service provided by the Nevada City Post Office.

And, of course, Karen.
