And the Post Office Said...

"We have no idea where your mail has been for the past 2 months."

Isn't that encouraging? I asked the desk clerk, who asked the boss, who asked the mail carrier, who asked the farmer, who asked John Boy...
No one could figure out where 4 Christmas cards, a bill and a gift card had been hiding for 2 months.

If I had the energy, I would make up an outrageous story about where they were. However, my day consisted of getting my hair done, donating blood (had to enter into MM's blood drive contest. You have until the 28th to enter yourself, details, click here), go out to lunch with my mom, let dog out, go to Early Childhood Ed meeting, pick up B from jump rope, K from a town over, stop and get the girl's burritos for dinner, help with homework and go with my sister to the movies (He's Not that Into You- very cute BTW). So, now that I have relived my day, I am suddenly REALLY tired and am hitting the hay. Ha! I rallied with a poem!

As far as the USPS, use with caution!

Now you'll never see another piece of mail until it's been stamped in Munbi.

Sadly, I think you might be right about that!

I'm with WeaselMomma. I think you should always be nice to postal workers, and never point out when they've screwed up. You'll be getting your Easter cards in October.

Arrrggghhhh! I know your frustration! The first box I sent to my son at Wright-Patt took six weeks! C'mon...I mailed one box from Poolesville, MD to Dayton, OH! Never again! UPS only! I wonder if I could send all my mail through UPS? Perhaps we should let them know...there is possibility (if they lower their prices). Hmmmmmm.....
Perhaps a letter writing campaign is on the horizon!!!!
USPS needs some competition! Look at what happened when McD's and Dunkin Donuts created their own mocha coffee...Starbucks had to close some stores!
just sayin'
