Bob did say that if they ever ship anything with USPS, they send it to my home address.

Why would your mailroom guys care?

I know plenty of people who have personal packages sent to work.

I have mine sent to work. My only problem is lugging the big box home every month!

I've thought of having them delivered to work, but having the box sitting next to me all day would make the day seem longer I think.

It's just that I'm still pretty new here and this is a big place where they handle a lot of stuff as it is.
And every time I've mentioned getting personal packages I get weird looks from my coworkers.

I'd been getting my BoC sent to work for fifteen years, but that was at relatively small to medium sized offices where I knew the people who worked the mailroom, if there was one.

At my old job, I used to take an extra long lunch once a month.

That's what I'd do, but I wouldn't want people trying to see my comics. :D

I liked Plain Janes and have heard good things about this one too. Jim Rugg's art is awfully nice, too.
