What I Meant to Say - 5th Edition


...with my bud Chiefy. 


Join in. 


Write a post and link up. 


I cannot be held responsible if you do not and a pack of wolves eat you.


WHAT I MEANT TO SAY!!


Let me set the scene....


I go to the window to ask for assistance after not being able to get my PO box open.


The guy at the post office: "Your box is locked until you show two forms of ID."


Me: "Huh? Why?"


PO Guy: "I don't know. We just had to lock down a lot of the boxes until we had two forms of ID on file."


Guy behind me jokes: "Maybe you should have paid your bill. Hahahahaha."


Me: *bores hole in his head with my death glare* 


(So lucky that Chris Rock lives in my town......)


Me: "Here's my drivers license."


PO Guy: "I need another form of ID like a utility bill, copy of a lease, mortgage statement, voter registration card...."


Me: "Here's my Costco card."


PO Guy: "I can't use that."


Me: "Why not? It's a PHOTO ID."


PO Guy: "It's not on the list."


What I said: "Oh. Okay. Let me run home and get another form of ID for you. I'll be back in about 45 mintues. No....don't worry that I have an appointment at the hair salon in 30 minutes and have to pick the kids up from school immediately after that. I'll skip all that stuff and get you the ID." *insert pleasant smile*


What I really said this time meant to say: "Seriously? Who carries a copy of their mortgage statement or utility bills on them? Not me! I got enough crap to carry on a regular basis! I don't carry useless stuff on the off chance someone might ask for it! And no, I do NOT have my voter registration card on me either. The polls aren't open!! So you want me to drive all the way home and get another form of identification before I can get MY mail out of MY box?! So much for running to the PO real quick on my way to get my haircut. I mean, it's fine that you need to update your files. But it would have been nice if you would have put a note in my box the week before so that I would know BEFORE I drive over here that you need additional information. It is NOT okay that you hold my mail hostage and waste my time!"


PO Guy: *insert blank apathetic stare*


After my tirade (stop laughing....for me that WAS a tirade), he finally mentioned a form of ID which I actually had with me that would be acceptable. So I had to get out of line, go to my car, get my vehicle registration and get BACK IN LINE!


Yeah.....not a happy princess.....


And what was in the box? A credit card bill and tax forms.... 


Happy, happy, joy, joy. <------that's sarcasm, MIITB.




Last week....




When I said: Ed is most awesome. (His words...not mine.)

What I meant to say: HELP! Someone please save me from this crazy person with a knife to my throat!''

Totally kidding! Go see Ed and tell him Princess sent you. (Or as he likes to call me...POS. I'm still looking for someone to take him out for that.)





To the groundhog who had the nerve to not see his shadow and dart back in his hole....


What I said: "Aw shucks. Six more weeks of winter."


What I meant to say: "Who wants to come to my house for groundhog stew? I'm using my crockpot again."

Im glad you didn't go completely POSTAL!



bwahahaahhaha

singedwingangel said...

hmmm our weather man said he DIDN'T see his shdow.. Either way it still jmeans 6 weeks of winter lol

carissajaded said...

Umm I will eat that stew up. I was planning on scalping that fool but couldn't find him!!

Amber said...

yeah i told today that the groundhog here is WI didn't see his shadow but the one in PA did. I'm choosing to believe the one here. It fits more with what I want. :) lol

Oka said...

How can the ground hog not see his shadow with all the media lights they have there? I say it's fixed, I tell you.

Your post office SUX, mine would of let me back at the front of the line.

adrienzgirl said...

I knew somebody was going to get that damned little rodent. But, ewww....yuck! I don't think I'll be trying that recipe. Blech!

Kmama said...

WTH with the PO box?? I would have been LIVID. If I didn't have what I wanted, I probably would have told them to cancel my PO box and give me my mail (and then start it up again on another day).

Evonne said...

Maybe if the old guys in funny hats wouldn't shine so many darn lights on the stupid rodent, he wouldn't see his shadow in the first place!

And the post office... I hate them too!

Ed Adams said...

Poor post office guy.

I'm just glad to see I'm not the only government employee that you're a bitch to.

hahahahahah

Daffy said...

See, that's why YOU are the princess. I'm just the sassyass duck. I'm sure I would've told him if he just opened the (insert special words here) box there would be more forms of identification than he could shake his little smokie at.

Ed's a softie...you just gotta know how to work him.

Tina said...

....awe come on...I can NOT be the only one (ducking) who is wishing like a five year old on Christmas morning every single day when I get up that we have had some freakish snow storm in the night and must dig out.
Snow...the more the better...the longer it lasts the happier we are!(waiting for objects to fly past my head)
xoxoxo

Trac~ said...

Argh - poor thing! The postal guy should have at the very least let you get ahead of everyone else in line since he made you go back out to get another form of ID - how crazy is that! UGH!

LMJ said...

uuggghh! that totally would have pissed me off at the P.O.

mintifresh said...

I think part of the training of a Post Office worker is how to infuriate in a mild, seemingly benign manner.

CountessLaurie said...

i love the blank apathetic stare. i gotta practice that.

freaking groundhog!

Heather @ Two Little Monkeys said...

P.O man would've ticked me off.

Sabrina said...

If the Prince is such an avid hunter, send his butt up to Pennsylvania to shoot that rodent! We will all get great satifsfaction and you will have a tasty stew! :)

Jessica Jones said...

POS

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

LOVE IT!

Hillbilly Duhn said...

Apparently Ed is boycotting my blog, I haven't seen him around.

My post office peeps are fairly friendly. You did waaaay better then I would have.

Mama Zen said...

Definitely cook the groundhog!

Just Jules said...

you should have told the post office guy that if he would allow you in your box you could surely get some mail on it with your address :)

Beth Dunn said...

OH My-they really do try to be inconvenient don't they!

xoxo

WhisperingWriter said...

Ugh, that PO dude would have ticked me off. I certainly don't carry around those types of papers. I would have only had 1 photo ID (my liscense) and that would have been it.

I'll try some groundhog stew ;)

Meeko Fabulous said...

Crockpot, huh??? ;)

Shell said...

Too bad they wouldn't open it for you and just see if the names on the bills matched your license.

Jenn said...

I would have said to the PO guy:
I KNOW! Why don't you open my frackin' PO Box for me, then I'll give you it's contents as PROOF THAT I YAM WHO I SAY I YAM. BITCH!!!

I lurve you, Cessy!

Margaret said...

I wanna come eat some of that damn animal!

Lisa said...

YOu know...I really dislike post office people. I will go to one an hour away because all of them closer are full of people who have lost their smiles and refuse to look for it.
Groundhogs sux...don't even wanna eat one.

Ed Adams said...

You'll have to try harder than putting a comment on a 5 week old blog post of my wife now defunct blog.


Loser!

Mwahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Brittney said...

HAHAHAHA!!! Omg I would have went completely momma meltdown on the mail box people! lol! stuff like that irritates me so bad.

Tracie said...

I know someone who actually eats groundhogs. He says they aren't too bad but they are very greasy.

Bonehead said...

I always carry several different forms of ID with me in addition to my drivers license. My passport in case I need to leave the country quickly, cheese of the month club card...

In the post office though I usually just point to the FBI poster on the wall and they give me my mail.

tattytiara said...

So, going by the order he made his suggestions in, we're supposed to believe that it was more likely you'd happen to have a utility bill on your person than the registration for the car you'd driven there in?

Krista said...

As I grew up in Pennsylvania, I believe that Punxsutawney Phil is the one true weather predicting groundhog so I can only assume that it is he whom you intend to make into stew. A few things to consider:

1. Phil is something like 120 years old. Seems to me that this is well past a groundhog's prime years...I bet he's gamey.

2. He is well guarded by the inner circle. I've heard that they will take you out if you get anywhere near the little rodent.

3. His wife, Phyllis, would miss him terribly.
