The mailman never comes on time...


Last week my sister and I took place in an online auction for some Newfoundland Art Prints. We won on the same day, we paid on the same day and the prints were shipped on the same day. Hers were delivered yesterday.

Today should be my day.... perfect, I'm not working today.

All morning I'm perched in a chair with the best view of both the driveway and the door, waiting.

The minute I give in to my bladder, waddle off to the washroom and drop my pants, the doorbell rings. Seriously, the mailman could not have been timed better!

By the time I pulled my pants back up and got to the door, all that was there was the parcel pick up slip telling me my package will be available tomorrow after 3pm.

Stupid 3 cups of coffee, made me miss my prints.

  13. Could you leave a note on the door saying it takes you a few minutes to get there and to please wait? We did that recently and it worked!!!

  14. All I could do was laugh at how you described how you couldn't wait any longer and waddled off to the bathroom---it was so cute. I can relate, believe me. It's one of those things you'll chuckle about later. Hope you post a pic of your prints.

    Cheers

  16. Darn that postal service for not being in sync with your bladder capacity. Seems the Canadian postal service is just as inconsiderate as the US's. Sorry, Baygirl.
