Dude, I'm wondering where the hundreds (riiiiiiiiiiiight) of Valentine's cards are that should come pouring into my office are. So, while I'm pondering the thought, guess what happened? I receive a Christmas card - postmarked 14 December 2009. 2 months to get a CARD (thanks Mrs. Kogan! Love ya!)
I check with our dude in charge of picking up mail. He said that he thinks part of the problem is that the sorters in the post office keep piles of mail and don't LIFT them into the PO boxes.
Now, if you have lived in Kuwait for more than 2 weeks, you will know that you CAN'T have anything sent to your home address or a physical address EVER because 1) your mail will end up scattered in the desert somewhere or along the side of the highway 2) Only if you are lucky do you have an actual address that is recognizeable to postal people and 3) if you do have #2 (ha ha), most likely, the building/house number is not market, so that they will just #1 you.
Let me just say - once again - in true Desert Girl-Style:
THE KUWAIT POSTAL "SYSTEM" SUCKS THE BIG WANKY ONE!
OMG - how long do ya think it is going to take to get Valentines from my loved ones and admirererers? E-mail is nice, but hard copy is better.
