    I got my eggs from Dipsey today, rather, the eggs arrived today. I wasn't home when the mailman came, but it was nice out, so I figured they would be okay. Well, they would have been, if the stupid mailman would do his job!!! He put the eggs in a bag and tied the bag to the mailbox. Someone had come along, cut the bag off the box, and stole my eggs!! I found the box and the packing materials, plus the rest of the bag, about half a mile down the road. So someone is going to have an expensive breakfast in the morning, as there were no eggs in sight.

    Now I get to call the postmaster in the morning, get that stupid carrier fired, and get them to reimburse me the price of the eggs AND the shipping. I filed a report with the police station, so if the P.O. doesn't go along nicely, I get to go to the county attorney's office.

    Freaking people, the dang box was marked 'perishable' and 'fertile eggs for hatching', why didn't they just put them back? We sell eating eggs for $1, they could have come and got them, if they needed eggs that badly! Heck, my dad gives most of his eggs away!

    So sorry to hear about your eggs! And from DDD, too! Rats.

    I give my mail lady cards and treats over the holidays, and we always get gooood service. She gets out of the car and brings our packages up to the porch and hides them behind the railing ~ then leaves a note in the mailbox. [​IMG]

    So . . . do you think they were et, or do you have a hatchaholic living near you?? :eek:
