Every year I put up a little disclaimer about how the postal service gets really bogged down during the Christmas season. Really it's just to cover my butt because I'd never experienced a massive delay in delivery services in the last decade just because it was Christmas. The occasional package would get stuck somewhere for a day or two, but that was it.
This year is a nightmare. Ever since I moved to Columbia, USPS has been a nightmare and the whole Christmas rush thing is REAL. I'm so sad.
Here we are, days before Christmas, and I'm still waiting to receive almost a dozen packages. Granted, most of them aren't exactly gifts or anything, but I sorta need them. Soon. I've been telling myself, "Any day now. I'll just wait until tomorrow before crying." It's been several weeks for some of these items. -_-
I guess I'm just a little bummed out. Doll parts are missing, my charm order from Zap Creatives, supplies for my show in 10 days. And a bunch of convention artists got together to do a big Secret Santa exchange. I'm one of the unfortunate ones who still hasn't received their gift. Fortunately my giftee received hers about two weeks ago! Crazy thing is, I shipped her gift off and paid for 2 day Priority shipping and it took FIVE DAYS to get to her. Holy snap. Of course another friend shipped me a box of homemade cookies and it took 3 days to arrive with Firts Class mail. What the heck is happening?!
WHY ARE YOU FAILING ME USPS?! HAVE I NOT BEEN A FAITHFUL SUBJECT AND GIFTED UPON YOU MANY OFFERINGS OF FOREVER STAMPS AND ETSY ORDERS?
Just kidding. I'm not that dramatic. Although I do want my frickin mail.
Hope the rest of you have better luck, and anyone waiting on mail gets blessed by the postal fairy to get your stuff quickly!
