    I've been ordering eggs the last two months on a regular basis. I have chicks coming tomorrow. I called to tell them about the chicks coming and they said "So you are the lady that gets all the eggs". I could tell she thought this must be the crazy egg lady. I live in a rural community that is mostly dairy, why does receiving chicks and eggs in the mail seem so far fetch? Ask me If I care being known as the chicken lady, nope not a bit.

    Same here. When I went in about 3 weeks ago, the guy looked at me and said "yep, it's about time for eggs isn't it?" I drive them crazy calling to find out if my eggs have arrived [​IMG].

    Around the time of the chick sale we had chicks coming everyday. I remember after about the 4th or 5th order of chicks they called and said "You have more chicks again, please come get them, when are you going to stop getting birds". It was funny, the person had a monotone voice so it made it funny.

    Everyone who works at our post office is so rude.. We live in a small town and I have to say they are the most unfriendly people. It really is so sad they treat everyone like the are stupied. I think we all bother them I have really thought about calling the postmaster, but he is juat as bad. I am sure it would not help.

    Ahhh...nope, they don't think I'm crazy, they KNOW I'm crazy (for my chicks and my eggs). But since they know I call them, and get there etc., to get my chicks or eggs, they pretty well know, my little guys/gals better be happy and peeping when I get there. TeHe! They keep them right by their leg. And if they are eggs, I can understand if one or three breaks, but a whole dozen. Nah, I dont' give them any flack they try to be as careful as possible. :)Although I'm not so sure about the post office where they came from etc.
