I have problems with this. They are too lazy to deliver so they leave a notice of delivery in the mail box. I always call the post office and tell them that IF I WANTED TO COME DOWN THERE TO PICK MY PACKAGE UP, I WOULDN'T PAY FOR MY PACKAGE TO BE DELIVERED!!! Ok, I am done. Feel better.

It's okay Patty1. That's why this thread is my very favorite. Once vented there is that moment of relief. It's also good for relating to others.

I'll never forget my first post about the constant stress of IE8 crashing constantly. Not only did I feel good after venting, Alix and Andy (Alix & Andy? sounds like an old radio show) wrote back and convinced me that I needed to get Firefox with Ad Blocker, which resolved my daily frustrations for good.

I had been sleeping for a couple of hours until I was awaken by my daughter shrieking. She had gone into the summer kithen to grab a bag of potato chips, when she was totally freaked out by a mouse that had gotten its hind leg caught in a trap. Our Malamute quickly darted out from behind her and grabbed the mouse only to somehow fling it behind some boxes. I had to come down in my pj's, and fish this poor live mouse out of the corner with a hockey stick, get it into a bucket, get it outside and somehow free it from the trap because my daughter didn't want me to bash it with the hockey stick. . It took a long time. Here I sit wide awake, have to be up at 5 am, while my daughter and the dog are sound asleep, now. I need a drink.

Do you ever get the feeling you're the star in a cartoon?

Thanks for the mental pictures.

So...where's the mouse? I hope your daughter doesn't want to see it in the morning!

Funny thing is, she was freaked and long gone by the time the whole operation was completed. I don't think she could care less at this point. But, I gave her my word I wasn't going to kill the mouse.

My neighbor saw me out in the snow, -15 degrees Celcius, in my pj's, workboots, gloves, hockey stick and no jacket, at 11 pm. He has seen a few odd things over this way before. He just waved. Just another night in paradise.

What I picture! I don't draw much, but I see this cartoon of you, with your hockey stick. Very Tom & Jerry.
