I treat it like any business.
That said I rarely go into one. If I need a service from the PO I use the contracted places.
Unfortunately at least at times the federal court does seem to treat the post office as federal property. At the risk of repeating myself here is a case in which a guy was convicted of several crimes for a burglary of a post office including a conviction for 18 USC 1361 which prohibits damaging federal property. I think the section has an alarming lack of anything that specifically mentions the post office but merely mentions federal property. http://openjurist.org/821/f2d/1306/u...ates-v-burkett
