A moment in the mail room

At 20 past 8 on Monday morning, freshman Brian Ramey awoke, hair mussed, to find that his alarm clock had failed to wake him up for class.

On Wednesday, just two days after being marked late to class, Ramey stalks into the Marist Post Office to retrieve his new clock. He receives the Amazon- stamped package promptly- “no line today”- and heads for the door.

He, like many others, is a “regular” at the Marist post office, habitually ordering off Amazon prime at least once a week.

Jordan Casey and Shea Boham, brushing in the open door past Ramey, declair themselves Amazon Prime users as well, frequenting the mail room at least twice a week. “Forever 21, that’s a big one. We order clothes a lot…” they smirk, packages tucked under their arms.

The other regular in the news room on Wednesday afternoon was Clint Gannon, the employee. “We have a lot of regular kids who are in here every day or every other day- I like interacting with them,” Gannon said.
