The Boonies!!!

What a morning it has been! So my order from the Woolery shipped yesterday.  And what does the post office do??? Reject my address, and ship my package to North Carolina!  Part of living here in the boonies is that the town is so small that everyone gets a PO Box. But businesses don’t like that. They like physical addresses, so we give them the physical address, but in the second address line we put our post office box. But that doesn’t account for nothing, and the post office rejects our address, and the next nearest thing they can find is our town name, but in NC. Presto change-o that’s where your package is going!!!! Just like that! /bangs head on desk

But the most wonderful people at the Woolery, even though they are out of the Spinzilla packs have found a way to pull my order together again, and they are going to do what most places have to do for us, and march down to the post office and say, “THIS is a real address! This package NEEDS to go there!!!” And amazingly once it gets ~into~ actual CO, for some reason they can find us! But magically everywhere else in the country thinks we are a big empty hole, like the Bermuda Triangle, or something. Wooooo weeeeeeee woooooo weeeeeee woooooo weeeeeeee! And yes, we get all of our bills, and other normal mail just fine here.  Just for some reason packages from companies are a thing. :-/ The UPS guy can find us. FedEx had it’s trouble back last year, but now with a phone call or two they can find us most times too! Google maps thinks we’re at another house about a half a block away, so you can’t even look us up on there, or you’ll be seeing someone else’s place. LOL

I guess it’s just all part of being in a small town. One of those, get to know your neighbor kinda places, because your package is gonna end up not at your place, because they don’t look at the number on the house, they just drop it where the map says to go. We don’t rely on technology out here, so much as we do friendly folks getting our things to the right place.  Scary for the rest of the world. Just a part of small town boonie living for us!

    There are two houses on my street with the same number. It’s because there are THREE counties on my street, and all of them number differently. I’m lucky – I’m one of those houses. But at least we know where to go when our packages don’t show up.

    Yep, that’s what it’s getting like here. Thank goodness three of us don’t share the same number though! That would make me nuts!!! LOL In FL though we did live just over one county line, but not far enough over the city line to be in the next city. Telling people what county you lived in, they expected you to be from the other city… but there was just those two streets that weren’t. Lucky us. 😛
