Some dude is hounding me on eBay over issues that are clearly USPS's fault... I'm worried I'm about to pick up my first negative feedback.

Hopefully I can appeal it. Every message has been about shipping and I sent it the day after the night the auction ended... Complain to the post office dude.

In his defense, USPS has been slacking. I shipped it on the 15th and it didn't get a scan until the early hours of the 20th. On the 23rd it got "mis shipped" to a facility in the Bronx and it is now back at some other NYC facility and likely won't be delivered until Monday.

That's pretty shit for priority mail.
They don't even bother evening packages at our local post office. Honestly, I use the private place that is an authorized postal location.

I got my first 'could not deliver to this address/location unaccessible' from USPS this week. Especially aggravating considering our mail arrived that day. I'm assuming the dude just missed the package in his van and had to mark some excuse for why it didn't arrive on time (it came the next day with the normal mail)

From what you've said of your sister, she's too much of a broke loser to be able to afford meth. That should be reassuring, right?
Honestly my first thought was if she's tried meth once she'd already be a full blown addict. But I have noticed she's starting to smell like shit and her teeth looked really bad last time I saw her.

So...

Genuinely sorry to hear that. Meth is an ugly addiction, for both the user and anyone that cares about them.

I think it was 2008 or so I had my first real run n with a meth addiction. One of my friends posted on FB that his husband had started using meth like that month and that "I haven't seen him in a week and he stole my wallet and car." I don't know what ended up happening to him but my friend is now living his best life again.

Also I had a friend whose mom was an addict for my friend's entire life.We went to pickup her mom as she hit rock bottom. That was a fun night.

Back when I was a senior in HS I worked at a deli shop. One of my coworkers disappeared for a week and then showed up like 20 lbs lighter. When I walked in and saw him for the first time his face had sunken in and he looked like he hadn't slept at all. I said "damn, you look like you've been smoking crack all week".

My other coworker pulled me aside and told me the guy was on a meth bender the past week.

On a lighter note, it has been confirmed my allergy to hay. Holy shit took the family horseback riding and my eyes nearly swelled shut. And this was with doubling up on zyrtec and benadryl.
Stupid genetics (and allergies).
