Sneaky Post Office

So now the USPS isn't bothering to deliver packages to home in Chicago, instead leaving the pink form (that was clearly written in the calm of the post office)--saying "come and get it sucker!"

Interesting. Maybe that is a way to boost the numbers of customers who go to the post office and justify the jobs of postal employees?

Or is it just clear laziness? So very exhausting to lift a one pound box (times 2) and ring a bell.

The irony is both boxes were marked--to be left--if I wasn't home.
The worst irony was I was home, the bell works and I don't have a dog to scare the carrier.

Sigh. Bye bye USPS.

    This is happening to me, too! I work from home so I'm always around during delivery time. I got the pink slip instead of my package last Thursday, even though I was home and frequently checking for delivery. I signed the back of the slip and checked the box requesting that my package be left at the door and taped it to my mailbox. The next day, I go to my mailbox, no package, and find that the mail person wrote "Which house?" On the pink slip instead of just following the directions. Uhm... the house that is attached to the mailbox!! Infuriating! I left a more specific note the next day, only to find the note gone and no pink slip so I can't even go to the post office to retrieve my package. This is the second time this has happened, I'm definitely paying extra for UPS or FedEx next time.

    I was an accidental expatriate; love and marriage led me to it. One day I was a bandy-legged kid sitting atop my dogwood tree looking out of my small backyard world in 1950s New Jersey, wanting to move somewhere--anywhere, different. Next thing I knew my father had accepted a job in Houston TX. I was ecstatic, it was a foreign land in 1961 America. After high school graduation, my parents’ gave me a matched set of fawn-colored hardsided American Tourister luggage. Taking the hint, I went to college; well four colleges in five years--it was the 60s after all. Meeting a young hirsute anti-war, soon-to-be-Peace Corps volunteer, I fell in love. After finishing up college coursework for my degree, but before I even walking a graduation stage, I grabbed the paper airline ticket my boyfriend had sent me, my brand-new passport, and was off to the airport and Lima, Peru.
