Everything is Different
WHAT a change the war hath wrought in our daily lives!
- Women doing men’s work, men doing women’s work; everyone fussing about certain things that can’t be helped, and no-one doing other things that should be done.
- As the progress of the war speeds up, abroad, other things go slower, at home.
- Take the mails, for instance. We have never had so many complaints of slow delivery as at present. It’s tough, but the post office, the railroads and everyone else concerned with transportation, are finding their hands more than full, and we’ll have to put up with it awhile longer.
- So don’t crab if your magazine is late. We get it into the mails at the usual time—and then hope for the best! What more can anyone do?
