The US Postal Department issued this stamp to commemorate Waitress Week across the United States. The stamp was first placed on sale June 24, 2011 at the Bellingham, MA Post Office. The waitress stamp was issued to especially recognize the un-tiring efforts of Alyson, a dedicated waitress that works at the Bellingham Uno’s Restaurant. The stamp has a 29-cent postal value, color violet blue and multi-color in various shades. Unfortunately, the Scott's catalog number for this stamp is not available. It seems that the Scott’s catalog has not listed this valuable stamp yet. The stamp was issued in limited quantities and quickly sold out. Although the stamp has a postal value of 29-cents, the catalog value for a mint never hinged specimen of this stamp is priceless. Also, all those that purchased this stamp do not want to use their valuable mint stamp as postage. Therefore a postally used specimen doesn’t exist. However, due to the celebrity status of this stamps, and if your budget allows, it is worth adding at least one copy to your Waitress Stamp collection.
There are two very good reasons for acquiring this stamp, First, Alyson, the waitress, is very dedicated to her work, always trying to provide a unique service to all the patrons that she serves at the Uno’s Restaurant. Secondly, Alyson has a delightful smile, a sense of humor, and laughter that inspires friendship. It is not possible to see her and not at least return her smile. And, when you do smile at her, you will be further rewarded from her eyes through which you will also see her inner beauty.
Tell Alyson, “The Sun People are Here”
Alyson has, by her efforts and dedication, acquired many fans. One of her many fans is the “Sun People” that dine every Thursday night at the Uno’s Restaurant in Bellingham, MA. A separate special interview with the Sun People has revealed that they look forward to eating at Uno’s every Thursday because they know that Alyson works there. They said, “Alyson always does her best to make every visit an unforgettable experience”. During each major holiday, Alyson will dress for the occasion. She is at her best when she dresses for Halloween and when she dresses to help support party events. The Sun People admire this trait in Alyson. They made this fact known to Bill, the on duty manager, that Alyson deserves special recognition.
A World of Information in an Instant
The Sun People like to bring with them on their visit, the latest information about people and events in the world revealed throughout the very entertaining “Sun” magazine. The Sun People like to inform her what they learnt while she works. Because Alyson understands the patrons, she listens to them, and without missing a heart beat, serves the appetizers, salads, refreshingly cold drinking water, beer, celery, blue cheese, and boneless wings. She quickly understands the various facts told to her by the Sun People. She even helps them by providing words, which helps in solving the weekly secret word puzzle.
A Word to the Wise will Suffice
Also, during the interview with the Sun People, it was determined that they have traveled hundreds of thousands of miles. They had traveled as fast east as Australia and as Far West as Japan. In all these travels, the Sun People have encountered countless waitresses. Very few as good as Alyson and most not. The Sun People have acquired a skill of knowing that when a waitress smiles, they are able to determine how caring they will be. They discovered that you need not travel for service, when you already have the best here at Uno’s in Bellingham, MA. They also found that there exists in all communities in the United States a very special waitress that people love and admire. Many of these waitresses attract patrons to their restaurants. It would be wise for all management though out these communities to recognize their waitress efforts, if they have forgotten to do so.
Words to the wise; The next time a waitress smiles at you, smile back, for you will discover what you assumed was not there.
* This leaflet is a tribute to Alyson presented as a dramatization for the reader. However, it must be revealed in good spirit that certain things must be clarified as follows:
Permission was received by Uno’s Restaurant management and Alyson to showcase her leaflet on “Do You Know This Stamp.com” web site. This stamp does not exist and has not been issued by the US postal service, the Bellingham Post Office did not have any of these stamps to sell to the public, there is no holiday called the “Waitress Week”, the Scott’s catalog only lists real officially issued postal stamps, and the Sun People are not affiliated with Sun magazine. The remaining portions of the article contains delightful and other factual information published in the format of the “Stamp of the Week” for the entertainment by the viewing public.
