It has been clear for a number of years now that my postal carrier is not my BFF.
She isn't even my Facebook friend.
In fact, I'm pretty certain that she dislikes me greatly.
I have expressed concerns about our relationship before in previous posts. I have detailed her desire to continuously drive past my house. Her reasons are arbitrary at best. I have no more snow in front of my mailbox than any of my neighbors. However, she decides what is acceptable and what is not and therefore my mailbox is never acceptable.
We had snow last week. On Wednesday.
I still haven't received mail.
Seriously? I have had my flag up since Thursday. And everyday since Thursday she has driven past my mailbox.
I stopped into the post office to complain today and to see if she had my mail in a special "People whom I hate" Post Office Box but unfortunately she did not.
I explained to the Post Master that I don't want to piss her off even more than I apparently already have but her constant disregard for my mail delivery is really pissing me off. I told her in the Spring she drives by my house because my flowers are too long or because my neighbors parked on the street "too close" to my mailbox.
She has a four-wheel drive vehicle....we didn't have a blizzard....surely after five days my mailbox is clear enough to deliver mail.
The Post Master promised she would drive by and "take care" of this matter for me. Forgive me if I don't hold my breath.
Whatever happened to rain, snow, sleet or hail, the Post Office will always be there?
Yeah...right. I think it may be time for a PO Box.
