Even though my office is on the 19th floor (out of 21), the elevator was already crowded when I stepped into it when I left work. "There won't be a lot people in tomorrow because of the holiday," the woman behind me remarked to her co-worker.

"I know," he replied. "I wonder if the post office will be open."

I turned slightly to look at them.

"No, probably not," she said. "I think the post office will be closed tomorrow."

Oy vey.
