Another mysterious product of the bureaucratic mind on display in Madison
Check out the Saturday hours posted on the front door of Madison's Westside Station post office on Struck Street. Come on, guys -- if you don't want us to come in, don't beat around the bush. Just come out and say so. Your website says you're open from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. So what's with the cryptic, alternative time scheme for Saturdays? Did your sign painter run out of 8's and 3's? Do your Saturday hours change so frequently you need to keep your options open? Or is there something in the USPS manual that says every communication with the public must contain at least one example of totally indecipherable gibberish? It's a mystery.
