We have lived in this house for about 8 months now. In that time, I've had a few things "lost" in the hands of our oh-so-wonderful postal service (HA!). I didn't worry too much about the items because they were smaller things, like a marker pen that my daughter won in a contest and never received and some other similar things. I won a blog contest in November and never received the package I won, and the blogger never replied to my emails inquiring, so I assumed her giveaway was a fraud and she never shipped. Now, I wonder!
I won a big giveaway more recently. The wonderful blogger sent my package, and it never arrived. She is SOOOO kind-hearted that she went out and re-bought the items and shipped again, this time adding a tracking number. Well, according to the number, my package was delivered, but I NEVER SAW IT! The disgusting thing? I'm home all day and I always see when mail is delivered, so I go right over and get it. Therefore I know with great certainty that my mail isn't being taken from my mailbox. On top of this, I also won a Honey Kix prize back 2 months ago. It hasn't ever arrived, either. I guess the carrier decided to steal that, too!
I am so thoroughly disgusted with the post office right now that I could scream! They wonder why people use e-mail nowadays? Because people don't STEAL email! The sad thing is, I don't know if it's my carrier or if it's some sleezeball at the post office distribution center. And I'm sure the post office will just tell me that it isn't their fault and I'm out of luck, because that's just how customer-friendly they are.
Why do people have to be so ridiculously dishonest?????
