Actress Amy Sedaris loves her neighborhood Post Office.

In a new essay in the Village Voice, Sedaris, who is best known for her starring role on Comedy Central’s “Strangers with Candy,” writes about her favorite spots in her New York City neighborhood.

“The [West Village] Post Office, I’d have to say that’s a place I frequent every day,” Sedaris writes.

She says the office’s employees recognize her from her guest spots on TV shows such as “The Good Wife” and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”

Sedaris notes “there’s nothing more annoying” than when customers cause long lines at the Post Office because they haven’t properly prepared their packages for shipping.

Postal employees have shown her how to tape and pack a box so she doesn’t face her fellow neighbors’ annoyed wrath.

“They’ve really taught me well,” Sedaris writes. “I’m an A-plus student at the Post Office.”
