Nothing Echoes Like an Empty Mailbox



(Source unknown)
Three weeks ago our national postal system went on strike.  At first some mail was moving, but the carriers have been on full strike for a while now.  This really peeves me because my mailman is hot.  Seriously, sometimes I mail myself letters just so he'll come to my door.  I hope things get moving soon because I don't know how much longer I can wait for my Etsy delivery of button soap


or my latest issue of Psychology Today.  I read it out loud to Little V at nap time until she's comatose/bored.  Whatever it takes.

I can't fathom why someone would want to deprive me of my own mail. It really bothers me. Hopefully when the shenanigans are over all my accumulated mail will be intact.

Really? How does the post service go on strike? Isn't is a gov't agency? How do people get their bills and return payment if they aren't electronic?

No mail is just too wrong. Especially if you're waiting for that amazing button soap.

ARGH! I know exactly what you mean. I have several things in transit from etsy too. I really, really hope they settle things soon. Suffering in Ontario, Anne.

Our mail system isn't on strike and I still don't get packages. Some (over a year ago) I still haven't received. So I'm not sure which is worse. Here's hoping your mail comes soon so you can get all your fun etsy finds and oogle the mailman! I just love your blog!

You poor thing. Give me your addy and I will mail you something, might not get to you for a bit but at least you will be able to see the hot mail man.
I don't like most of the mail I get, but I don't know how it would be with none. I am with Angela. Not everyone gets bills online, that would suck to be a person who wasn't able to pay because of that.

I was thinking, the silver lining is that you don't have to find bills waiting for you in the box. But... it just means you'll get a whole bunch all at once--bummer! On the plus side, it sounds like you have a lot of cool things on their way to you. Hang in there!
