Not To Be Trusted With Knives











{May 3, 2008}   Saturday’s rant is brought to you by the letter M. For marshmallows.

Yesterday, I got this notification, telling me that my delicious, delicious vegetarian marshmallows that you can only get by buying them on the internets and having them shipped from the States at an exorbitant rate are waiting for me at the post office.  Usually, you get these little notification cards to tell you that they came by your house with your package and no one was home and so now, as punishment, you have to go to the post office to pick up your package instead of them just leaving it for you.

But this particular notice was a little different:

The didn’t leave my package because the road was closed?  I mean, yeah, there were construction peeps digging up the road for some unknown reason, but clearly the letter carrier was able to get to my house, because he left the notification card there! What, the *marshmallows* were too heavy to carry half a block?  They are marshmallows, for crying out loud!

Anyway, I’m going to the post office now.

Canada Post = FAIL!!!

Make sure you complain (or call and complain). They did the exact same thing at my place and there is no construction on my street. It was one block over and only on that one block.
Lazy b@stards.

AOM! You are back! Good to hear from you!



AOM says:

Hey thanks! I read everyday but have pithy comments to contribute less frequently. 🙂



You know, that’s sadly typical. And if they DO manage to get to your door, you’re lucky they don’t just leave the damn thing sitting outside. I live on the DTES and I had one package fail to show four times until we figured out the postie was leaving it outside my front door!



Beth says:

LOL. You’d think that the postie would know better!



[…] used to say things they liked were “the bomb”? Ah, those were the days. ²And, since Canada Post has “issues” with bringing them to my house. Beth @ 10:40 pm [filed under Uncategorized tagged food, […]
