    Yay!
    I had two packages due to be delivered today via UPS. They brought one and transferred the other to the post office. Why?

    You know, as rants go....that rant was kind of weak, KenK.

    Saw that post, said to myself "Oh wow. A rant from a man. This
    is gonna be great."

    But...It was kinda weak. Left me wanting more. Come on Ken.
    We're MEN...you can rant better than that.

    Spook....who NEVER rants, 'cause Mrs. Spook is alot bigger.

    That's done here too. The UPS man isn't afraid to brave our road, but the FedEx guy won't. Any package shipped FedEx is left at our post office.

    I have a better one, though. Recently I had two packages shipped from the same company a few days apart. One wasn't any larger than a brick. One was larger than a loaf of bread. The letter carrier left a notice in my mailbox that the brick sized one was waiting for me at the post office. The loaf one he intended to deliver the next day; only the post mistress caught him and from what she tells me, explained to him why his plan made no sense. She held both packages at the PO for me. I would have been madder than a wet hen had it been necessary for me to make two trips.

    maybe they forgot it? Idk.

    My idea.

    Step 1. Put on the dirtiest clothes you can find. Roll in some chicken poop if you need to. Go run in a mud puddle and make sure the shoes are good and dirty.
    Step 2. Go to post office.
    Step 3. Make sure sure the smell reaches the postal worker.
    Step 4. Leave a mud trail.
    Step 5. Leave with package.


    I'm sure they probalby would never forget/transfer another package again. Also let me know if it works lol

    (ps. don't really try this)

    yeah, but know what works? Have your best friends and family with young children meet you at the post office or (better yet) the car dealership if you are awaiting your car being serviced/repaired. Give them candy first, and act like a mama hen with a brood of chicks. Suddenly get promoted to the head of the line every time! Oh, once when my daughter was about six, we went to the grocery store to pick up last minute supplies before Christmas Eve dinner. She'd eatten a tuna sandwich earlier, and standing at the back of the long line, she suddenly looked at me with big eyes and said she didn't feel ...then lost the contents of her stomach. Poor baby. Suddenly everybody parted like a living Red Sea, and they wisked my stuff through while I took her in the bathroom to clean up.
