Merry F-ing Christmas!

So yesterday, I went to the post office. Oh. My. God! All I needed was some stamps in order to mail out our Christmas cards. I stood in a 5 person line to use the cool-ass postal mailing, and stamp machine that accepts credit and debit cards. When I got up there... yup. Out of stamps. There was a line of (I am serious here!) nearly 30 people all waiting in line to mail packages. I was not going to wait with my squirmy baby who was arching backwards to get out of the sling. Nope.

So, onto Plan B. The UPS Store. Sure, they charge $3.00 more than the Post Office for a book of stamps - I needed 2 books. But, since they would be the charming gingerbread people stamps,

I was going to do it. Pay $6.00 more than the post office. For the SAME stamps, yes I was.

But, as you may see where this is going... they were all out of Christams stamps. All out of stamps, except for the "goddamned Snowy Fucking egret stamps."

(Jeff and I joke about these all the time...) I was certainly NOT going to spend $6.00 MORE than the Post Office for "goddamned snowy f-ing egret stamps!"

So, this morning, I will venture out into the heart of the beast... in search of my beloved Gingerbread People stamps.

for all of these reasns, i never ever go to the us post office. if i need stamps, i order them online well in advance. you cannot beat 1 dollar shipping when the lines at our po are out the door almost any time of day through out the year. it would piss off the pope.

LOL that sounds like my luck. I buy my stamps at the grocery store and no longer care if it's some lame ass stamp, all about convenience these days!
