I can not believe it is already Friday and Christmas is next week. I am normally completely done with my Christmas shopping. With Emma’s birthday being Christmas Eve the past nine years she has been the reason for my non-procrastination. I always wanted her to not feel like her birthday was completely surrounded by Christmas, like it was it’s own day, well as much as a Christmas Eve birthday can seem that way at least.
This year is an entirely different story though. For some reason our USPS lady has decided for the past several months that she is just going to stop delivery packages entirely (this has been the case for our 2 years of living here but become significantly worse the past few months). Checking tracking numbers they will say notice left yet there is no notice in the box. I head to the post office where I am told “there are no packages here for your address and delivery persons are not actually required to have the packages present and on them. They can leave the facility with notice in hand.” Which on it’s own is frustrating if I pay for a service (ie express or two day) you should provide that service. To top it all off I have had 4 packages they have not been able to locate for the past 2 1/2 months. I am told she must just have them on her truck. If you aren’t going to deliver them yes it’s frustrating but atleast leave them at the Postal Unit so I can pick them up. USPS has yet to respond to a single claim my husband or myself have had to file either. Moral of this long vent of a story: I don’t care what the upcharge to avoid USPS I will pay it and now have to reorder several Christmas gifts. Oh and if I see you walking around in le hubs custom Nike’s I may just tackle you and take them off your feet! Sorry for the rant, hopefully I didn’t scare you all away:).
