Harry Potter and the Well-Trained Postman

Mugglenet has this hilarious post about USPS (United States Postal Service) sending special preparation notice to its employees for the huge task of delivering Book 6 on this Saturday. Among other problems they anticipate excited kids waiting for the mail-delivery vehicle being a major one. I quote :

Delivery personnel should anticipate children may attempt to expedite delivery of this book on Saturday, July 16, 2005. In these instances, children will be anticipating the mail person, observe the mail delivery vehicle, approach the delivery vehicle, inquire if their book has arrived and, if so, requesting immediate receipt of their book.

The letter goes on to explain proper ways of carrying large quantities of the book, as well as how to handle excited kids.

The info was sent to Mugglenet by one Jeff.

No such problems for the guy delivering mail to my home on Saturday. I'll get mine at the midnight release event at my neighbourhood Barnes and Noble store!!! :)
