So, I had two posts planned for yesterday and today (obviously, one a day, duhhh), but I just needed to vent. If you follow me on SnapChat (@hippiehxc), you’d know that some serious drama has been going down just in general.
Let’s start with the whole house situation. For months, we’ve been having major leaks in our house. Nine to be exact. If you think I’m kidding, I can name all of them for you and probably the day they started if I look back in my planner. Yes, I’m one of those. I keep track of everything, and for good reason in my opinion. Anyway, the last leak was in our master bathroom again and started about a month and a half ago. Within two days, maintenance was at our house and told us that they were just going to rip out the entire shower and replace it since we had so many issues. Three weeks later, no one had come back. This past week, someone stopped by again and said that they were going to hire a contractor to do the work instead. So we’ve been without a master bathroom for a month and a half now. Again. After being without it for months this past summer. Essentially, we’re paying for a 3 bed, 2.5 bath and can’t even use a full bathroom out of that. It was worse before, so I guess I should be counting my blessings. Best part though? Aside from not having a shower, they’re raising our rent once our lease is up. Excuse me? I wish so badly that I had the time and resources to look for a new place to rent because I’m so done. Understandably so.
Then we have the whole issue with my post office, which I ranted about on SnapChat yesterday and again on Twitter today. Essentially, someone at the post office stole my Sephora Play box. I know it’s not really a thing since it’s only $10 and tax, but it’s the premise that I paid for it, it’s mine, and someone working at USPS took it. I’m not jumping to conclusions either. I was told that my tracking was manually altered to show that the package was delivered when I have screen shots that prove otherwise. On top of that, I finally got some answers from my post office today. They just informed me that my package entered the PO and never left, and now no one can find it. And even though my tracking was manually altered to say that it was delivered, my postal carrier said she had never seen it, nor delivered it. Sephora is already shipping me out a new box at no cost to me, which I’m insanely grateful for, but that doesn’t mean that I can’t still be mad that someone is being so clearly negligent and deceitful. I ended up (just now) going through the crap of submitting a formal complaint with the Inspector General. This isn’t the first time that my packages has been weird with showing up while living here, and the fact that the carrier has changed so many times makes me weary in the first place. Like I said earlier on Twitter, lord knows what other companies have sent me gratis and I have no idea because there wasn’t tracking and I never received anything. I feel so bad for companies that have to ship out extra product at their cost because the PO can’t get their shit together. It’s not their fault, and it’s certainly not mine. Example: I asked the woman I spoke to flat out if the carrier left my package with my office attendant (which is what my tracking says (now)), and she responded with “No.” Nothing else. Just one word. So why does my tracking tell me otherwise? It’s so shady that it literally makes my blood boil.
At this point, there’s not really anything I can do about either situation except wait. Hopefully I can find a way to make sure my next package actually enters my hands. As for the shower, at this point I’m so past caring. That situation sucked up enough of my energy when it was going on for months previously.
I know that 90% of this probably didn’t make any sense to you, but this is my blog and I needed somewhere to vent all of my frustration so I didn’t end up taking it out on someone who didn’t deserve it. I’m not perfect or happy all the time, and I do get angry and sometimes you’ll see that. I’m just a regular person who happens to write.
So, thank you for reading if you’ve made it this far. My regular posts will start back up again tomorrow. Please feel free to check me out on social media too, that way you don’t miss any drama. You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest – SnapChat @hippiehxc ♥♥♥
