Where have I been?

Funny story I just had to share, well maybe just cute.
Remember the card I made on Friday to thank my friend, Kathleen, for lunch? I took it to the post office. I had a few other things I had to mail. I had postage on the envie but handed it to the lady behind the counter anyway. She told me I would need two cents on it. I told her I had put 42 cents on it and she laughed and told me that postage had gone up to 44 cents. I couldn't believe it. Where have I been????? I asked her and she kind of chuckled and told em she didn't know where I had been, but that postage had gone up on the 11th. At least I was still in the same month. I am wondering if things I have mailed out have been getting where they are supposed to go and if people are having to pay to get what I am sending them. hmmmmm!!!!! Oh Well!
Thanks for tuning in.


  1. I doubt you're the only one who missed the announcement, which was made only a day or two before the "event." I've been trying to remember to buy the "Forever" stamps, which are good regardless of cost hikes. Hope your day is a good one!

  2. Les, they're slipping these rate hikes in like crazy. I don't think they want us to mail things anymore. :-(
    I agree with Kathi - I've quit buying the pretty stamps and just get the forever ones.

  3. That's too funny. I never know what the postage amount is anymore. lol.

  4. Leslie, it seems that the post office raises the rates every two-three months, it is very hard to keep track of postage....have a Blessed day!
