So, A month ago today, our executive suites notified everyone that they couldn’t pay their bills and were shutting down operations in our Lakewood office.Â And, to top it off, all of us were being evicted (apparently one firm had JUST moved in the week before).Â We had or have, until December 1st to vacate.
Almost 3 weeks ago, after I forwarded all of our mail to a new PO Box, I suddenly stopped receiving mail.Â Nothing but an empty box day after day.Â I talked to my local post office and theyÂ all seemed fine to them, in fact, the postal worker said “the check’s in the mail” referring to having to wait for my mail patiently and that it would probably arrive.Â Not overly helpful and no other suggestions. He basically left me to deal with it on my own time and not his.Â Hm.
I called the Post office near our office and a nice woman (Leslie) said that in fact there had been a glitch in the software and that all of my mail was sitting in the forwarding facility somewhere here in Colorado, and that no, I couldn’t go there to collect my mail.Â She wouldn’t even tell me where it was; only that it was the facility where all the lonely pieces of mail went to get the little yellow forwarding stickers put on.Â She took my number and said she’d call back.
3 days later and nothing,until I finally get a call back (today) and it’s Leslie saying she found my mail and where should she send it.Â (I found it quite amusing that she would mail it to me).Â But, she guarantees I’ll have it tomorrow, apparently by some inter-office mail system and not the “real” mail system, because if you can’t trust your own system, you better have a trustworthy back up.
So, after more than 2 weeks of no mail, I should finally get it all tomorrow – if it doesn’t get lost in the mail again… I’ll let you know.
