Storyline

After Joe insults Sam about the way he runs the post office, saying that even a baboon could run it better, Sam gives Joe the post office. Against Kate's wishes, Joe decides to set up the post office at the hotel's reception desk. Joe tells Kate that the post office will bring customers into the hotel, they who will want to stay for the night. Kate does whatever she can to persuade Joe to give the post office back to Sam and for Sam to take it back. Joe in turn does whatever he can to gather whatever equipment he needs to run the post office, namely to steal whatever he needs all in the name of the federal government. On the customer side, they treat the new post office much like it was still in Drucker's Store. Joe even tries to co-opt Charley and Floyd to help him. When things start falling apart around him, Joe tries one last scheme to deliver the mail as easily for himself as possible. Written by Huggo
