At least 10 people tried to mail their tax returns from Coachella
Amidst the craft tents and hippie vendors of Coachella, a cabin made of literal Lincoln Logs acts as a laissez faire middle man between festival goers and the local USPS outpost. The lack of legitimacy didn’t seem to occur to more then 10 people who attempted to mail their tax returns from the pseudo post ahead of the April 18 deadline.
Megan Hampton, the brains of the operation for two years running, spoke to The Mercury News about the unsettling trend.
“No, I can’t ‘just take it’,” Hampton said. “How do they have their taxes here? I don’t know.”
Although the non-post-office post office generally handles postcards and mailer boxes full of festival merchandise and terrible macrame, Hampton admits most of the parcels lack return addresses. Many aren’t even “coherent” enough to actually send. Whether that is from general lack of postal knowledge or general intoxication, one can only imagine.
The log cabin also gets its fair share of eccentricities. Among other novelties, Hampton recalls denying an eBay seller’s pre-paid package and accepting an engaged couple’s wedding invitations. “They wanted it to say Coachella,” she said.
