Hate Mail.

I’m not a fan of mail.

I don’t even like getting it all that much. Oh – I like packages and photo mail… greeting cards are good. But the rest of it? Eh.

I really really have a problem with sending out mail.

For instance, right now I have to mail out a package to my secret swap sister, two layouts for photo swaps, and pictures to someone else so they can scrap them for me. Have I mailed them? No.

I don’t understand why I feel such resistance towards the post office. I can’t remember any specific incident that made me feel this way. It’s not like I’m harboring some traumatic event that happened to me while licking a stamp or something.

What if something happened to me, postal related, and it’s somewhere in my subconscious, and I don’t even know what it is… but it keeps me from going to the post office or appreciating the things I get in the mail?


That could happen, right?

I just need to do it. I need to bring all the stuff with me to work and then go to the post office.

Could it be a time issue? We’re all busy. (‘busy, busy terribly busy… much much to busy for you…’ – veggie tales) Maybe I just don’t feel like going to the post office. Maybe I’m too busy.

I’m a busy working Mom… I’m not some ‘beck-and-call girl.’ (another Pretty Woman reference… I’m on a roll!  ba-da-bing!) I don’t have time to be gallivanting all over town from post office to post office.

Maybe it’s the uniforms. I mean, even Project Runway couldn’t make those things look sexy. Maybe I have some sort of aversion to the polyester blue/gray fabric and starched collars. Bleh.

Why can’t I just get my shit together and get to the post office? I mean… really – what the hell is wrong with me? It’s just the post office – for crying out loud!  

Even now… at 11pm… I’m thinking I could probably gather all the stuff together and do it tomorrow on the way to work… oh wait.. I don’t have everything together that I need to do to send the stuff out. Crap. I need to get some supplies together, find the addresses, make sure I have everything… and tomorrow, I have an 8am breakfast meeting at a theme park. (wheee!) I won’t have time to get to the post office! 

(oh yes – some days start off realllly good – I’m going to have breakfast and then ride a roller coaster. Well – hopefully a long time after I eat breakfast… wouldn’t want to puke on my boss)

See. No trip to the post office for me.

    Just thinking about going to the post office makes me break out in a sweat. I HATE digging for addresses, boxes, crap to seal up boxes. I think we should have ‘people’ for that. And I swear…could the people behind the counter be any more RUDE???? Um…how do they expect my children to act after I’ve been in line for a freaking hour and a half!! Um yeah. I hate the post office.

    How was the roller coaster ride? Did breakfast stay down or did your boss get a new suit.
