i don’t know why i have so much trouble with the postal service. a few weeks ago i redeemed an amazon gift card and bought myself the lovely hat seen above.
normally all my packages are delivered to my job because i’m always there, but for some strange reason i decided to have my hat delivered to the house. of course, i just missed the postal carrier and they left a “we missed you notice.”
i signed the notice with instructions to leave the box on the porch. the next day, the notice was gone, but there was no box. five working days went by and still no box.
finally i drove to the post office to see if it was there and lo and behold the postal worker emerged from the back with my box. i wanted to beat him with it, but it wasn’t his fault. the postal carrier didn’t even make an attempt to re-deliver, but tossed my box in the back. the person at the post office shook his head in disgust and wished me a good day.
