My eyes feel like I've been crying all day. I swear I haven't, but at this point I'm giving it some serious thought.
This morning with filled with errands.... a quick trip to Target to pick up a new black ink cartridge and some crap I didn't need and then to the post office for stamps. Once again, our motherfucking post office doesn't have the new postcard stamps.** This time instead of offering me the old postcard stamps and the two cent stamps necessary to make up for the rate hike (oh, yes! they did only increase postcards by one penny, but they don't have stamps for that so I got to overpay) they could only offer me a fucked up assortment of 10 and 2 cent stamps. 500 of each, dammit. So my afternoon was sucked up by sticking four stamps on each of the 250 postcards I needed to mail today. Oh wait, I did 50 other postcards with the leftovers from the last trip to the post office. So we're up to 1100 stickers I stuck today. Plus the 300 labels I did last night. Oh, AND! the 250 stamps and 250 labels on the other mailing. I'm losing my fucking mind and it's only Monday.
So about that other mailing....
Last night I ran out of ink while printing it. Sucks, but it was an excuse to go blow some cash at Target. So after the post office bullshit I came home to put my new ink cartridge in the printer, which then proceded to only print about 300 pages before crapping out on my. DAAAAMMMMMIT! I bought this damn printer because it was supposed to print 900+ pages per black cartridge. My ass! So here I am stuck halfway through the job once again.
But wait! What about my 123inkjets order?
I ran out to the mailbox, full of hope and wouldn't you know it somehow the grand ole USPS decided to make up for the stamp thing by delivering my replacement ink order today. Hallelujah!! I skipped back to the house like a drunk schoolgirl, only to get to the printer and realize that I had ordered the wrong motherfucking black cartridge for my printer. What. The. Fuck. Why does this damn thing take two different black cartridges and why do I have to be the dumbass the orders the wrong one?
I am trying really hard to breathe and be calm but dammit, I could use a break today. I hate doing mailings and shit like this does not help.
* Ok, I'm not usually quite that vulgar, but that's the word that runs through my head most of the time these days like some damn potty mouth mantra, so I figured that because I'm pretty sure no one reads this, I'd just let it out.
** And yes, I could go to another post office and try to find my stamps but this post office is actually clean. Well, sorta clean. I hate spending 30-45 minutes waiting (yes, this is average around here for some damn reason) waiting in a filthy icky post office.
