Real Snail Mail


I got a call telling me today that there is a package for from me from the mail. I had no clue what they were talking about, he asked me what to do with it and I said to keep it in the office so I could pick it up on the way back from my meetings. I had no clue what it was because I didn’t remember ordering anything at all.


I opened up this box right away to find the wedding invitations for my friend’s wedding which took place back in December. I took another look at the box and it turned out to be United States Parcel Service delivery (USPS), which is regular mail in the US. My friend sent the wedding invitations on December 20th 2007, and I didn’t get the box until March 17th 2008.


So this is the record, it takes about a total of 88 days to reach Kuwait through regular mail. If a person drove to the US and back it would have taken less time to do that in Lada. I honestly surprised it found its way to me, I told my friend I thought his wedding invitations were tacky and after all this time they found their way to me.
