Went to the post office today, the Montclair Branch in the Oakland Hills. Asked the postal clerk for 100 forever stamps.

“We don’t have any,” she said.

“Say what?”

“We don’t have any.”

“I’ve never heard of a post office not having stamps.”

“I know,” she said, “but we don’t have any.”


“They haven’t come in.”

“Is it just you or is it all post offices?”

“Just us.”

Well, that’s a relief
