It's True, There is No Motto
Did you think the post office motto was "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds?" I did, but then I googled it and found out that it is not their official motto, only the one inscribed on the main post office. Good thing they didn't adopt it, because today, the Saturday before Christmas, when there was snow falling, but no snow actually sticking, they closed early, on what is arguably the busiest post office day of the year. And they're losing money? Maybe it's because they don't have a motto. Or maybe because they have truly stopped trying.
