McALESTER — Editor:

I regularly mail packages at the McAlester and Krebs post offices. Here’s what I have observed:

The clerk will quickly weigh my package, affix the stamps, promise me a speedy delivery, and quote me the price.

Stop! Ask questions! The price I have been quoted is likely the most expensive. I have other options.

Readers should tell the clerks to remove those stamps and wait until you have decided the method of shipment.

You have the right to choose.
