You Stole My Cookies…You Suck

Yesterday I got home and just before I settled in for the afternoon I got my mail. I was surprised to find a plastic bag with elastic bands and stuff inside. I was not expecting any packages. When I took it out I saw it was a parcel from an amazing friend.

Upon inspection I saw that the parcel was destroyed, it looked like a card ran it over. I also noticed a nice note from my mail man saying how sorry he was and that he got the package this way. I believed his not because I know he would never do this and the plastic bag that the box was in came from the head office postal people.


Was I mad? Yes but that was only the start.

When I got in I rang up the post office and told them what I got, I had to open the box while I was telling the woman on the phone about the appearance of this package.

Oh the shock I got…

When I opened the plastic bag that was sealed shut this is the note that was on it…


This is how the post office got the package in their mail stream..

Really…My butt..


When I looked inside all I was welcome with was the remainder off yellow tissue paper and one side of the box which had fallen off. Nothing else…Yes all the contents were gone…..Can you believe this? In all the years I have gotten mail not once have I seen such bull crap…Yes they have lost letters or I got a nice big coffee stain on my envelope…oh yeah…This just took the cake..

Of course I called my friend to sadly inform her of what had happen…She was so amazing..It turns out she baked me some cookies..

This is what had been in my package…


The woman from Canada Post was sorry for what had occured and took my information down. What else could she do?

Honestly now I know why people are slowly stopping using old fashion mail…It is getting more and more expensive and then this happens. Many times I have had to send packages where the contents inside cost a quarter of what postage is costing me.

So this is what I got to end off my week…Someone stole everything from the package especially my probably ohh so yummy cookies…

To whoever stole the stuff, you suck baddddd…and not in a good way…

BOOOOO!!! Damn Canada Post. Believe it or not it happens a lot. Which is sad for good reasons.

1) It wasn’t they’res to take. Regardless if they were hungry or not.
2) Your friend worked hard for those cookies and spent time sending them to you.
3) It’s a crime to have not tasted those cookies. They look delicious!

Sorry about your cookies Savannah!

You poor thing. If I was there I would bake you some…okay, I probably wouldn’t bake you some cookies, but I would totally buy you the biggest and best cookie platter from the store. Trust me, your tummy would thank me for the purchase rather than my baking skills. 🙂

Sadly, I can relate. My daughter had a birthday in October. My grandfather hasn’t jumped on the bandwagon of either sending a gift, money order, check or even a gift card. Instead, every year, including Christmas, he insists on sending good old cash. He’s old school and thinks nothing can replace the mighty dollar. Well, he’d be right because thief’s love to steal that mighty dollar.

So a couple of days before her birthday I opened the mailbox to find two envelopes which had been ripped (literally the envelopes were demolished) open. His customary $20 bill was missing as the card it came in was just thrown in the mailbox. Also missing was a certificate (luckily not the official one) telling my daughter that a savings bond had been purchased in her name and will be mailed to her soon. I can only assume the thief read the certificate assuming it could be redeemed for cash, so I got a sick sense of amusement out of that.

The sad truth of it is, I guess for all the people who try to spread joy and give to others, there is always one person who will rain on others parades and take what isn’t there’s.

I hope you have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

How lame. People can be so careless. Those cookies look delicious, too.

Lets hope they got a tummy ache from eating all those cookies! They do look delicious and beautiful.

At the office where I work we get these kind of packages frequently. Most are just envelopes though. We get them in the plastic bag with the same note telling us they are sorry and that is how it came. I got one package at home that was a prize from a reader contest and they had ripped it open and taken the chocolate out of it but left the rest of the prize. It is sad what some people will do.

It is truly sad that people will take the chance to steal whenever they can. There is no honesty…It is not even the fact that they were cookies, but the fact that someone stole my stuff and went into something that was to be personal…

Savannah, it’s such a shame, but I am sure your friend will get more cookies to you, and they’ll be better than the batch sent originally 😉

I have a similar story, a couple years ago I had a friend send me 2 suitcases with my stuff back from Ontario where I had been living for the year. A few weeks later I checked the mail and only one suitcase was there. The other which was a fairly large suit case is still missing, my guess is that it was stolen, because their is no way you could just loose a large suitcase. I got paid insurance, but it bairly covered the suitcase it’s self little own the contents. I was not impressed, when I called Canada Post they weren’t very helpful, and kept putting me off. I haven’t sent anything important by Canada Post since.
