I think you need to look at this picture first….
Can you spot what is wrong with this picture?
This was at our local Shop&Save grocery store. I saw this sign and just had to get a picture. I mean really? A sale that’s not really a sale?
Honestly, someone in their advertising department is a dolt.
Now if this were April Fool’s Day, I would understand the sign completely. Maybe it has something to do with the “Sale” ending on 4/20. Freshly baked indeed.
So, I didn’t buy any freshly baked cookies, simply out of protest for the non-sale sale. I do admit that it gave me a good giggle though.
The thing that really made me want to say #*#&@# was when I went to the post office yesterday to mail out some packages.
It’s only 3 cents more an ounce
To mail two patterns out in one envelope, it’s 6 cents.
I don’t know about you, but most time, if I see a penny on the sidewalk, I don’t even bother to pick it up. Pennies are almost worthless anymore.
But charge me 3cents more per pattern is a big ouchy because 3 cents adds up quickly when buying stamps.
See, not only does the postage cost me more, but I’m now going to be putting a stupid amount of stamps on the pattern mailing envelopes that go out.
I know that I can electronically print out postage, affix it to the envelope and actually save a little bit of $$ doing it too. But, it’s impersonal to me. I prefer to hand address and attach real stamps to my patterns going out in the mail. It’s my own little personal touch.
I need more postage than .44 to mail out a pattern though so I buy a .17 cent stamp to sit beside it. I’ve no choice on this 17cent stamp so it’s always the Blue Ram ….
I know, I know, blue rams and pansies don’t go well together, but like I said, I’ve no choice.
Until I run out of my current supply of stamps, this is how my envelopes will now look when I mail out two patterns…
Although I do have to say that the guys who work at the Rochester, Pa post office are THE BEST!
Happy Day everyone!
