Amy Sedaris Says

This is my favorite place. I'll call them for the dumbest reasons and they can help me out. Helen Ann is the woman who owns it. I'll just bring unopened mail and ask 'What does it mean?' and she'll explain it to me. Or if I run out of quarters for my laundry, she always has extra rolls on her. Anything you need—if you need something ironed or pressed or something delivered last minute—they are going to take care of it for you. She's also a notary. I just love the things that you hang in the window that say you can notarize stuff. I was even going to take that class and to be in competition with her and try to charge $3 instead of $2. I wanted to prove to her that it was a popularity contest but the exam was really difficult—it's like you got to be a frigging lawyer to pass that exam—so I was like, 'Forget it, no way.' I learn a lot of things from her. I always carry a tape measure in my pocketbook in case I need it, and she's like, 'a dollar bill is six inches' and she's right. So if you're ever in a pinch and at a flea market pull out a dollar and it's six inches long.
