Who Invented These Things?

Posted on

One job we have to do as camp hosts is to collect those yellow envelopes campers use to deposit their fees for camping. When they fill out the information and put their money in the envelope they then drop it in the green tubes provided at each bulletin board.
Not too sure who invented this system but they were blind, short armed and with legs 2 inches long! The hole they use to put a lock up inside the tube isn’t very big. You cannot put two hands through the hole to get hold of the lock to insert the key to unlock the lock. This is done by touch. Getting that key in the lock correctly  is done in the blind.
This is not my most favorite part of this position but a lot better than others. When the mosquitoes are out, sitting there trying to get the key in the lock takes on a whole new meaning!

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend. Fall is settling in here in the Indian Valley Recreational Area. Cooler weather came by and we even had some rain. We haven’t given up our shorts and t-shirts just yet though!

Be happy and well.
