Forever Going Postal

Dear Postmaster General,

You are making me crazy. Really, you are. See, you keep increasing the prices of stamps. I don't really care about the pennies. My problem is that I have a million stamps that need penny stamps attached to them. Do you know how annoying that is?

I am a busy and lazy stay at home mom. I do my best to keep on top of things. But, I am not always organized. I have about 12 stamps in my junk drawer and countless ones throughout our desk. Some are so old. Very old. Some have no price of the stamp on them. I have no idea how much they are worth. I looked it up once. So annoyed that I nearly threw them all away. But, I am too cheap. So, back into my junk drawers they went.

Hey, I know. It is my fault. You started selling the Forever stamps. But, really. They are ugly and I hate putting them on Christmas cards. So, I went against my own judgement and bought Christmas and Hanukkah stamps. I told myself that I wouldn't do it. And here you go raising the prices again. And I haven't used all of my holiday stamps from December. I will have to buy more penny stamps. Ugh!

I know you will continue to do this to me. I must resist the holiday and love stamps. I must ignore any special stamps you release. I must go with the ugly but necessary Forever stamps. I must but I am not happy.

Forever yours,

Indy

I hate the forever stamps too. Refuse to buy them. I'm with you.

Oh I don't like the forever stamps, but I got tired of buying penny stamps or just throwing away perfectly good unused 'pretty' stamps. What's the deal with the penny anyway??

Even the cost of the "forever" stamps are going up! WTF?! I thought that wasn't supposed to happen!

I will probably just scotch tape pennies to my envelopes again. It worked :)

I don't like those silly bells either!

I love when I have all of these old stamps and just start tacking them onto an envelope. 4 stamps for a letter is quite silly.

Someone needs to design a better looking "Forever" stamp...and QUICK!

I share your frustrations!

Isn't it ridiculous?! And, I read somewhere (Yahoo! I think) that post office workers are some of the highest paid...I'm assuming the actual mail men, but who knows. It's just crazy.

I'm Not Talking About It, I'm Just Saying...
