    Guaranteed it's a Canada Post thing.........we seriously have the worse postal service ever.....OK except at Christmas - everything flies around a break neck speeds around the holidays!

    Went to buy jeans. Of all the styles of jeans in the store, I only liked the fit of one pair. They only had one of my size or else I would have bought a few more pairs.

    Got home, went online and found out the style is discontinued. Argh.

    I just got the news my grandma died, trying to book a flight is a nightmare because all the airlines are saying is they dont know what ID is needed for an infant and to check their websites, and the airports are just saying to call the airlines :flaming:

    I'm sorry to hear that :(

    My sister in law's grandma just passed yesterday morning. She was planned to be there for two weeks, but had to fly out a week early because her grandma had a massive stroke. And my brother is stuck at home in Alberta, and she is in Ontario, because my mom can't handle his two dogs, their own dog and my currently one armed(just had shoulder surgery) father while still working. No one else can watch the dogs because the only other person they tolerate is in Austrailia!

    Sorry for your loss @CabterCrazy.

    Makes my gripe insignificant, but dam it, how can it take 3 days for a parcel to leave JFK and still not be with Canada post.....when do I start screaming “lost parcel”
