We want to throw a little love towards Jeanette Coffin today.

Coffin reads every single email sent to the town of Chapel Hill mailbox, and then figures out where to send them. She listens to the collective grievances, wishes, hopes, and (occasional) praise of an entire town, and then helpfully redirects those emails to where they should go.

Coffin is always kind and cheerful, never judge-y, and probably reads more email than any other person on the planet.

Thank you Jeanette. We hope you are able to get offline this weekend.
