Drinking in Style!

The mailman and I have a strained relationship.

I don’t think he knows this.

Many times I have wanted to leave a note that expresses my unhappiness with his performance but I have been cautioned to leave it alone. To continue to allow him to leave my mailbox door wide open during a rainstorm while my flyers become soaked and unreadable, to allow him to squish my free samples at the back, and flatten fragile items without a care.

Because if I fight with the mailman my mail may not arrive at all.

I truthfully do not have a problem with this.

If my bills don’t arrive then I don’t have to pay them.

I have also been told that this is incorrect.

I hate technicalities.

So in order to continue receiving my sopping wet flyers, crushed samples, and curled Christmas greetings I bite my tongue.

Boy, am I happy I did! 

Look what he managed to deliver!



My beautiful mug from #mugswap2011!

Thank you Simply Stacie for sending me this awesome addition to my coffee drinking habit and thank you Liz for organizing!

If you haven’t already been, go check out all of the other mugs that were swapped at Liz’s place!

    Awesome mug!
    Yeah, telling the mailman to do a better job is like telling the pizza delivery guy not to let the cheese slide completely off the pie as he speeds on his delivery route. Cuz then he’ll just spit on your pizza the next time you order.

      I never think of that until after I complain and then someone says that they probably spit on my food.

    It’s also like sending food back when you go out to eat. You never know what they do to it before they bring it back.
    At lease this time he didn’t allow the mug to break. 😉

    Absolutely no idea why this made me grin but it did! Maybe our mail person (I think it’s a lady but who knows some days) should give yours lessons. *knock on wood*

      Do you not know it is a woman because her gender is questionable….
      That happens around our town a lot too.

        LOL! No more like it’s usually a lady but sometimes it’s a substitute.

    What a cute mug! Our poor mail person has to trudge and climb and shuffle during the snowy months, so I’m always so grateful that I get anything at all.

      It is law here that we have to shovel in front of our mailboxes or our mail will not be delivered.
      It still ends up on the ground
