I came home from work today, and there was no mail in my mailbox. This is the third normal delivery day in the last week or so that I came home to no mail. I haven’t had this many days with no mail in about a year. I always get something. Magazines, bills, advertisements, bills, junk mail, bills, strange things I’ve ordered online. Something. I’m even waiting on a DVD I ordered over a month ago (I’m having a heck of a time getting a satisfactory response from their customer service, though I have had SOME response), but it still isn’t here. I get home before the cutoff of the postal day though, so when I came home from the movies just now (I went out right after getting home from work), I checked again.
That’s what I found myself saying. “sadnomail.” Over and over again to myself. So I booted up the computer and checked the email. I heard the computer check my mail while I was getting loose change out of my pockets in the next room; the chime said there was new mail. I came back to see. No mail from people. A couple of SPAM-like newsletters I’ve signed myself up for to make it seem like I ever get email, both of which I saw at work already. sadnomail.
