Okay, I love my mailman…usually. But, once in a while, he does something stupid. Like today, when my package was left in a ditch. Man!
I went out to get the mail, and immediately realized that a package for me was left in the ditch…a WET ditch! Bummer… :evil:
I went back in the house, grabbed a mop, and my digital camera, then went back out to document the whole incident. :mad:
The photos show me walking to the end of my driveway (pardon the uncut grass - my hubby was exhausted this weekend and couldn’t mow), then they show my mailbox, and the package lying in the ditch beside it. It doesn’t look that bad in the photo, but it’s BAD. The ditch is about 8 feet deep, and there is no easy way to get down in there. Lots of weeds and water. Yuck!
I ended up having to scoot the package around with my mop, then was finally able to crouch down and grab the corner of it. The edges of the package got all muddy. Blech!
On the way back to my house, my neighbor’s dog came to walk with me, running circles around me the whole time. He KNOWS not to jump on me, because I showed him who’s boss one day by telling him “NO!” in a very firm voice. (My husband was impressed when that happened, because the dog was jumping all over him at the time.)
When I opened the package, I was relieved to see that the contents were not damaged. Thank God. It was my embroidery kit for the “Holy Nativity”. I plan on making this as a Christmas project. I’m so glad it wasn’t ruined by my stupid mailman.
