This is me, not playing Scribblenauts.

I preordered a copy of Scribblenauts and Amazon shipped it last week via extra-slow snail mail.  I kept visiting their site to track the package, and it finally said that it had arrived at the local post office this morning.

So I get in my car and drive allllllll the way over there (it's about 15 minutes away), but my box was empty.  I wait in line for about 5 minutes and finally get to the front.  I ask about my package.  Yes, they have it.  It came in too late for them to put it in my box.  And no, they can't just give it to me, I have to wait until tomorrow.

EVEN THOUGH THE PACKAGE IS RIGHT FREAKINTHERE!

So I'm going to have to drive a half-hour round trip again to pick up the package that's right there on the counter.   Augh!  If the Postal Service is that rigid, no wonder they're losing money.


As if that wasn't enough of a kick in the teeth, I just missed the barber and he wouldn't be back for 3 hours AND the Dairy Queen clone in town is closed on Tuesdays.  So it really was a totally wasted trip.
