The Post-Christmas Pre-Birthday Drunkening

Merry Christmas to Everyone Except the United States Postal Service

Christmas Eve, Zero Hour.

Still waiting on one last package from Amazon. I'm thinking it's not going to get here.

According to the USPS Web site, the package has not been seen or heard from since December 15th when it left the top secret Postman's Lair or whatever.

I sent out two frantically pissy emails: one to the USPS directly, and one to Amazon.

USPS response: Sucks to be you! We have no idea where your package is and frankly, don't think that's really our job. If it doesn't arrive after 30 days, you can go ahead and fill out Form A122-34 version 2F, available at all post offices in the Pacific Northwest, and we'll promise to look into it before next Christmas.

Amazon response: We are so sorry. REALLY sorry. Words cannot express how sorry we are. Seriously, we're like, crying over here. We have sent you a replacement order at no charge and commissioned a sherpa to guarantee delivery. Also, here is some ice cream and an animated "We're Sorry" e-card. Are we still friends?

God bless Amazon, and us, every one.

(Except, you know, the post office. Bah Bitch Humbug there.)



Ho ho ho - and a bottle of rum to you. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Love, Me and mine.


Merry Christmas!


Merry Christmas - sorry to hear about your packages


Merry Christmas Amalah and Jason, and Max, and Ceiba!


Merry Christmas, pretty girl in the furry boots! I hope today brings you much joy and--natch--blog fodder.


Merry Christmas Amalah!


Merry Christmas to you, Jason, Ceiba, and Max!


blog fodder. blog fodder.

Ha ha, that's funny.

flog bodder. bog flodder.

Sorry. And I haven't even been drinking. (My head is just spinning due to recent unnatural amount of family time.)


Merry Christmas :) And yay for Amazon.


Merry, merry Christmas to you and your little family!


Makes me heart Amazon, too.

Merry Christmas to Amalah, Jason, Max & Ceiba! May all be well and content for you this whole yaer through.



Merry Christmas :-)


Fed Ex also sux. I had a package that was scheduled to arrive at 7:00 p.m. on Friday. 7:00 came and went...with no package. I checked the tracking and there was a message that said "package arrived after courier dispatched". Now, see, if they had said that earlier? I could have driven to the Fed Ex place in Herndon to pick it up myself, but nooooooooo. They waited until 8:30 to notate that. And now there is not an updated estimated time for delivery. I will probably be at work when it's delivered which means no one will be here to sign for it.

Anyway, hope you had a great holiday!
