The Post Office Every Year

Every December I stand in line at the post office and make the same vow:

Next year my husband will mail the packages for his family.

He will:

1 – Take all three children with him

2 – Fill out the customs paperwork

3 – Explain 17 times why the line doesn’t go any faster

4 – Hand out goldfish crackers

5 -Pick up and put down the two year old six times.

6 – Fill out different paperwork since the previous paperwork was for packages that weigh one ounce less than your package

7 – Tell the children 23 times to lower their voice.

8 – Wait while a woman trying to mail a package to Sweden doesn’t understand why her box needs to have an address or be closed.

9 – Sweep crushed goldfish under the counter and out of sight with foot.

10 – Listen to the post office worker explain the twelve thousand options for sending a package when all you want to do is scream, “JUST MAIL IT!”

Yes, I’m quite sure my husband will be the one mailing the packages next year.

  1. Too funny and too true! The options one always cracks me up. It is like going to the restaurant and listening to all the myriad of specials when you know the reason you came is for the “Chicken Parmigan”.

  2. I refuse to go to the Post Office and Costco’s Photo Center during December! Craziness! You are so brave…and patient! Thanks for all your comment love! I always love reading your responses. Can’t believe you have a Seahawks fan in your house!! Maybe you need to take a trip to Seattle?

  3. LOL…LOL! This is hilarious. I was just there yesterday too! I even tried to go at a weird/off time so the line would be shorter and of course it wasn’t. I had two less kids with me, but definitely a similar experience 😉

  4. My hubby took them this year. Since I did all the shopping (even for myself), it’s the least he could do.
