Snail Mail is Making Me Lose Friends

    I don't want a bulky package that takes days to arrive and forces me to rush home every day after work, eschewing my social life, only to find that nothing has arrived.

    A fortune cookie sized strip of paper with the word "accepted" is all I need. Preferably watermarked.

    I wish someone would develop an electronic form of mailing so that this school would be able to communicate my acceptance quickly and directly to my smartphone or computer. If it were me, I would call it "E-mail."

      I wonder if my mother told me there was no mail today (for election day) so that I would stop pestering her just for one day about its contents. Of course, I haven't stressed about the mail today since I thought there was none coming today so her dastardly plan worked. Only now do I come to realize her information was incorrect. They only get normal federal holidays, not the crazy ones my dad gets working for the county.

        I didn't realize that there was a specific window of time during which your mail is available in your mailbox. :rolleyes:

        But don't you know that an acceptance by mail is so much more triumphant if you personally intercept the mailman as he is entering your building, grab the package from his bin, and run in slow motion upstairs while tearing it open??

          OK, I'm now officially requesting that mini letters be placed inside fortune cookies instead of envelopes. Even if you get rejected, you still have a cookie! BRILLIANT!

              What's wrong with you? Why do you do this? I don't think it makes a difference if you get your rejection letters right as they come or many hours later at 11PM when you come home non-rushed.

                Why don't you call your schools and tell them this? Im sure they will be very understanding and speed along the process for ya champ.
