Currently out of work, fandom- and wedding-obsessed 23 year old woman. Expect to see lots of posts about wedding, job-hunting, moving across the country (MI to NY) and fandom!

I hate the motherfucking post office

Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell a Friend Next Entry
So I recounted my ordeal last Saturday with getting shit delivered, ie that shit was NOT getting to my apartment, like the wedding photos that they conveniently tried to deliver while I was out picking up my other shit from the post office.

There was (apparently) no attempt at re-delivering on Tuesday or Wednesday. So Wednesday evening I go through the online shenanigans to request it to be delivered today, since yesterday Billy was (supposed to be) at school (he ended up getting sick, poor thing), and clearly they aren't willing to leave shit at my door anymore.

But guess what? THEY DIDN'T FUCKING DELIVER TODAY, EITHER.

So my options are now either go to the post office first thing tomorrow, or do another fucking redelivery request for sometime next week. Normally this would be a no brainer - just go to the post office and pick up the damn wedding pictures. But I managed to score a pass to Book Expo tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And I am terrified that if I don't get there first thing my chances at getting a Catching Fire (sequel to Hunger Games!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) galley will be lost (of course, this could all be for naught anyway if they ran out of galleys today, but I figure I have a better chance of getting it at nine tomorrow than at eleven or twelve).

One should never have to choose between wedding pictures and books.
  • There's a sequel to Hunger Games?! OMG! SWEET!

    And, that really sucks about the post office. Wtf? What a frustrating ordeal!
    • It's going to be a whole trilogy!!!!!!!!!!! (Because, seriously, the ending of the first book was NOT an ending. Well, it was and it was bad ass, but omg!cliffhanger!) The sequel is officially going to be published September 1st, but the galley is supposed to be premiering at Book Expo, which started yesterday.

      I seriously hate the post office, and from now on I plan on having packages delivered to work, because this is fucking ridiculous. I'm sending my husband to pick the pictures up on Monday because I'm too much of a nerd to do it tomorrow (and he has class all day).
