It’s a pretty widespread secret that our beloved, and much depended on, Poste Italiane sometimes lets us down
Just a quick hop, skip, and jump around the blogosphere will tell you all about it.
You know what I say to that?
Expectations, people!! It’s all about expectations. And, come on…give the poste a break! Sometimes they do come through for you.
Peppe and I have one common friend, and in that, I mean ONE person who was my friend AND his friend before we were “we.” This lovely English lass who has returned to the City of Lights, sent us an auguri card for our wedding.
We received it this week.
The postman, after complaining because I didn’t meet him at the street when he drove up on his scooter, handed me this.
Feeling slightly, ok…it was more than slightly, annoyed, I finished opening the bag. I found this.
Yep. It was opened. Not once, but twice.
Ain’t that nice?
Upon closer examination, I noticed the post date from when she mailed the card from France.
For those of you in America, that is November 12, 2007.
And, people say Poste Italiane can’t get their act together!
