The Postman Strikes Again

Good grief. If you’ve ever wondered why we pooches don’t like mail people, here’s another story.

The first story, lest anyone forget, happened when my Valentine Kyla sent me homemade cookies that arrived after the “made by” date.

It’s happened again. Take a look.

Princess Leah's letter

Yes. This was a howliday card from my pal across the pond, Princess Leah. Who was so kind to send me a card. Too bad I didn’t get it UNTIL TODAY. Harumph. Grrrrrrrrr.

Now, in case you can’t read the lovely note from the US Postal Service, let me give you the Cliff Notes version.

  • We screwed up (as if I didn’t know)
  • We’re sorry (really?)
  • Your mail is important to you. (thanks Sherlock)
  • We’re working so that it won’t happen again. (I dunno about that)
  • It doesn’t happen that often (I wouldn’t swear to that on a stack ‘o Bibles)

To the US Postal Service: READ MY LOOK.

Thank you Princess Leah!

Oh…and just so you know….I realize that I live in a somewhat civilized country, though, events as of late are questionable at best, but don’t get me started on that, and that others around the world aren’t as fortunate as I am to have a mail service at all. And I’m thankful.

But really.

    And they wonder why FedEx and UPS are eating their lunch (which got there late because they delivered it themselves).

    • Oh my friend Princess Leah, the problems were on my end I assure you. My mail guy ate it. Didn’t he? Look at that envelope and your bee-you-ti-ful picture!!!! wow.

      Thank you. It’s a welcome card no matter when it arrives.

      Yours, Stu

    Heavy sigh…. we figure our mail has to come to Florida after a trip on the postal rocket around the moon…guess yours does too. You are right however in saying we are all grateful we do have mail service. Really sad the cookies were past the good date =(. ( sad puppy face)
    great movie are a ‘STAR’ Stuart ♥

    Well I cannot blame the postal service. Bella, my girlfriend, order me something from here in the states and I never got it. The company she ordered it from forgot to put my name and PO Box number on the package. Just the street number and city. I found out how stupid the company was because Bella had a tracking number and when it came to the post office the package was scanned in showing no name hence it got sent back. I told them they should give Bella back her money that I had proof from the postal service but they never answered my e-mail.
    Oh well it is the thought that counts.

  5. We agree – we pay twice as much as we did for postage and only get half the service we use too 🙂

    We received two pieces of mail recently, on two different days, that were put into plastic zip lock type envelopes because some machine at the Post Office had chewed them up somehow during processing. One was an important bank statement! They included a note of apology but my Peep was mad as a hornet! We’re paying more for postal services and getting inferior service!

    I’m sorry about your treats! Maybe the peeps’ll take pity and give you extra green beans to make up for the late ones treats!

  12. It doesn’t happen that often? Bet all post-guys have long noses like that Pee-nocchio now :o)

  13. PigLove says:

    Snorts! Yeah, “It doesn’t happen that often”. Sure nods piggy head. You should see some of the boxes that we have gotten here at the Hotel Thompson and the shape they arrive in…. as if. XOXO – Bacon

  14. Uh…you are only just now receiving a holiday card?!? A Christmas card at Easter time? At least your mail was “ressurected” for this holiday! BOL

  15. corkscot says:

    We expect too much from our civil servants. Now you want them to deliver things on time. Shame on you.

Go ahead...Bark Out Loud! ArroOOOO!
