How are you today? It's the end of the month, so that means it's time to recap January's mailings. I know, you're riveted. Even so, I won't mind if you excuse yourself to do something even more exciting like cut your cuticles or watch paint dry. (will you bring me with you?!)
BUT! First things first: it's come to my attention that some of my mail seems to have gone missing as of late. So, if we're penpals or mail tag partners or some equivalent along those lines, and you haven't heard from me in a long time and expected to hear from me by now (or, sent me something and haven't heard from me in a long time), please email me and let me know. I've missed you, buuuddddy!
To date, I only received 9 of my 12 Days of Holiday Bullshit envelopes. Statistically speaking, that means 25% of my incoming mail has gone missing between December to mid-January. UM, Canada Post? THOSE NUMBERS SUCK. Yes, I realize that if this were school, 75% success still means that you passed; however, if this were say.... bomb-defusing and fumigation, that 25% failure rate counts for a lot. "But lady! I killed 75% of them bugs! Doesn't that count for anything?" "That bomb only 25% went off! That ain't bad!" NO and NO. And yes, I realize that these analogies don't really make sense in the context of things, but just pretend that they do because I'm trying to make a point, which is that Canada Post sucks.
So it stands to reason that 25% of my other mail went missing too, hence the point of two paragraphs above.
(this is also why I really want to start training squirrels to deliver my mail. Except I won't because that seems like something a crazy person would do. I'll just stick with my aluminum foil hat for now, I guess....)
