…And Here’s Zach With the Weather! (Scavenger Hunt)

Filed under: Uncategorized — Dylan @ 11:23 am

Sometimes when working in the post office, you might not know exactly what’s going on in the outside world today. Today when needing some information about the weather, it occurred to me that I had a package I needed to pick up from the post office.

While I do not know post office worker Zach Hutchison very well, I have had a class or two with him in the past, so when we do see each other there usually is some conversation between us two. Today when picking up the package, I figured I would ask him about the weather. When I did this, he gave me a confused look and simply said, “It’s warm, I think.” He then proceeds to look up the weather on the post office computer and admits to me that he actually had no idea what the weather was like outside. After looking up the weather, he told me, “I’d rather it not be 89 degrees outside.” This is because Fall was his favorite season and has been awaiting Fall weather since classes started. When asked for the required selfie to commemorate the exchange, Zach was more than happy to take one with me.


After collecting my mail, I decided that I wanted more. I wanted the opinion of someone who was actually outside and getting to enjoy the weather. On my way back, I ran into freshman Skyler McDermott, who was walking across campus with a smile on her face and pep in her step. When I asked her how she felt about the weather today, she told me, “It’s beautiful! Except it’s supposed to get hotter today and I’m wearing jeans so it’s not going to be very fun.” When I asked for a selfie to commemorate our encounter, she refused and continued on with her day.

As someone who is generally an outgoing person, doing things like this are not too hard for me. I was a little heartbroken that Skyler refused to take a selfie with me, but you can’t win them all.

  1. Skyler seems like a happy, positive person. I am also disappointed.
