I Hate My Inlaws!

Thank you U.S. Postal Employee :)

It's that time of year again where MIL sends "me" a card either weeks before or a month after my birthday. At least I think it's for me - because my name is always horribly misspelled despite the fact that I have the same name of one of her relatives - whom she never seems to have trouble writing her name.

Usually DH opens it, calls MIL to yell at her but (sigh) also thanks MIL for sending it - probably giving her the attention she wanted.

Well this year, I got it (complete with her address label and stamp slapped on it upside down) and took it to the post office.

I explained to the lovely postal employee that my MIL has been misspelling my name for over 20 years. She gets it! :) She writes the postal abbreviation for "no one by that name" on the card, then lets me know its going to be diverted to a central post office (and stamped and marked up more) and then sent back to her.

This lovely postal employee tells me that, "Now its not even just you! The post office is officially telling her she's wrong!"

Thank you!! Made my day! :) Best early Birthday gift!
