US Postal Service Solves Long Waits By Removing Clocks From Post Offices - Consumerist:

This sounds like a joke, but it's being reported by the Houston Chronicle: The USPS is removing clocks from post offices in order to allow customers to better "focus on the postal service."

"We want people to focus on postal service and not the clock," said Stephen Seewoester, Dallas spokesman for the U.S. Postal Service.

The USPS has removed clocks from 37,000 post offices as part of a "retail standardization program."
