So anyway, to keep the family peace, I thought I should make an effort to post every day. (Yes, of course she's Family, you don't seriously think I believe someone NOT related to me would be so interested in what I have to say?)
And here I am, waiting for inspiration....
oh, wait! oh...no.... that wasn't it.
gee, folks, how hard is it to write under pressure?
Accordingly, I've decided (just now) to make Monday -- MOAN DAY. Because, you know, it deserves it.
So, for my Inaugural Moan (it may be the last too, if I forget next Monday)
People Who Don't Bother To Have Their Mail Re-directed.
EVERY house I've moved into, I've spent the first couple of months re-addressing other peoples' mail. We're not talking Coles brochures, we're talking mail from banks, insurance companies, govt depts -- stuff that could be important. Might even contain cheques for all I know.
So far, and we've been here for 2 weeks only, we've had literally dozens of letters addressed to about 5 different surnames for the last tenants here, and I am NOT A FREAKIN POST OFFICE!
I resent having to make special trips to a post box in stormy weather with kids in the car, just to return YOUR freakin' mail. A re-direction service costs about $40 for 6 months, and then you contact the senders as the re-addressed mail comes in.
Now how hard is that, really?
So that's my moan for today; I have to go re-address some more mail now. TTFN.
