I mailed an express mail package yesterday to my mortgage agent in Rhode Island, at the address below:
Cranston, RI 02937
The kid behind the counter asked “is that international?”
To his credit, he was very embarrassed when I said “it’s going to Rhode Island.” He kept going on about how he had never seen the state code for Rhode Island before, was new here, etc.
The post office where this happened is in the student union at U of MN, and employs primarily work / study students.
