A post office by any other name, might cost you a lot of time and money. Help save the USPS!
Today’s COVID Card gives a nod to the naming of post offices. Apparently, there are no real rules for naming a post office. Many are named for locations (towns, cities, neighborhoods), some are named for postmasters or beloved postal clerks, some are named for famous people. And the names can change.
The postal decision-makers of Joliet, Illinois once had a punny sense of humor. They named their post office Juliet. After some time, it was changed to Romeo. Later it was again called Juliet before boring grown-ups took over and gave it the totally uncreative name of Joliet.
Edit: There ARE rules for naming post offices. These are necessary to avoid confusion and complication.
