I was waiting on line at the post office and eavesdropped on the trendy young woman at the counter in front of me who was ordering stamps. “I was looking at the stamps you have available and I’m wondering if you have something more elegant? I’m looking for something with more red in it.” She then made the poor clerk pull out every “style” they had in stock, but none passed muster, so the girl left in a huff. Really, it’s time we had a designer boutique for stamps downtown.
