To The Postal Service:

I want to kick you where it hurts. If you have done to my walking cane parcel what you've done with Pirate's gift for Batgirl, I will not be pleased--no, not pleased at all.

If you have sent my parcel away because one post person was too lazy to KNOCK and then check the 'too big to fit through letterbox' box, write a string of numbers, put down one signature, and slip it through the letterbox, I WILL hex you and your ancestors with unpluckable uni-bushbrows for all time!

It's winter! The English don't seem to comprehend shovelling! I'm handicapped! I can't walk on compressed snow-ice! I. Want. My. Cane., which I purchased with inclusion of a shipping cost; I refuse to pay that again.

If you have indeed done what I think you've done to me, you better be prepared to fix it. I'm not paying anything again and I won't grow any happier with further time waiting!

Here is a death!glare just for you,

At least I watched 30 Rock as part of my work-break and Jack said 'orgasm' instead of 'organism'. I was telling my friend before a presentation a few weeks ago that I kept doing that and absolutely could not do that during the real presentation. Science, people, is a bitch.

Although it wasn't quite as bad as that time I was thinking of 'chick literature' and lesbian erotica at the same time, and said 'cliterature'. That was an...interesting...moment in my life.

Now back to work. Guess who has to write up more presentations? ORITEME!

[And here I thought 'oh no I shouldn't upload that icon of McGonagall, when am I ever angry enough to use it? Apparently my brain knew something I didn't.]

Marvelous icon, perfect, really.

Let me know how this shipping business works out. We kicked their asses once. We can do it again.

Yes, I'm glad the icon was fitting of something in the end.

The collection office won't pick up the line on the number I was given. At this point I think I'm going to just contact the eBay seller and ask if I can get it shipped to my Stateside address for an additional cost. This is just stupid.

That is completely absurd of them. -_- Fingers crossed that it arrives for you soon!

Thank you! Alas, the postal service is stupid. I'll sort something out!

That's truly awful! I hope things are sorted out soon. And you've Lash fighting for you. If the sods value their sorry little arses, they'll heed her warning.

*Headdesk.* I hate the postal service here sometimes. No, they won't pick up the phone on the number I was given. Rawrg. I think I'll just try to have it sent to my Stateside address - I'll be home in 6 days anyway.

Yes, Lash is always a useful asset. I try not to use her, though, for as much as I whinge I too love a good fight--you know, when they're unavoidable and fighting the good honourable fight, of course. (;

(It's always entertaining, too, when this little rainbowtastic girl proves herself to be a worthy adversary. No one quite sees it coming. I adore that expression of utter uncomfortable surprise!)

Gotta hate when the postal service screws up like that..
