Think. Change.

The other day, I received a notice in the mail saying that I have a parcel waiting for me at the Postal Office. Usually when there’s something there waiting for me, I have to pay for it. If that wasn’t the case, the courier would have dropped it in the mail box. But that wasn’t the case this time around.

I planned on going to the Postal Office the day that I received the notice. The notice said that my parcel will be available for pick up after 5:00pm. From past experiences, I found that the notice is a lie. I called up the Postal Office before heading over, just in case the courier hasn’t returned yet. The person that picked up was probably the girl that works at the cash register every time I go there. I think she was in my case once but her name tag doesn’t match the name that I remember. Anyway, I asked her if the courier has returned with my parcel. She asked me for the parcel identification number and I gave it to her. Then she informed me that it is not there yet. It was 5:30pm at the time and the notice said that it would be available after 5:00pm. If I had gone to the postal office like I had planned, I would have gone home empty handed. So it’s a good thing that I didn’t go. The worker told me that it will be available after 1:00pm the next day. Now why didn’t the courier write that on the notice?

The following day, I went over to the Postal Office after dropping off my brother at work. I go to the counter and waited for someone to be available. Usually you have to ring the bell because the worker isn’t at their station. The lady that got there before me rang the bell before I could. After a couple minutes of waiting, the worker finally shows up. Sure enough, it was the girl that picked up the phone. She took care of the lady in front of me before helping me with my parcel. Usually before they give you the parcel, they ask for identification. But I guess since she recognizes me from previous pick ups, she didn’t ask me for one.


The parcel turned out to be the shirt that I ordered from mondonation. I’ve been waiting for this shirt for a while now. I think I almost forgot about it. I tried it on and I’d have to say that it’s rather comfortable. I don’t know why I bothered to buy a long sleeve shirt since I always end up rolling it up to my elbow. I guess I’ll have to buy another one but a t-shirt this time.


Inside the parcel was an envelope with a letter from Ward along with two temporary tattoos. The tattoos are another experiment that they are working on. The second experiments are pillow cases. I like the shirt idea better and I think it’ll go far. To date, mondonation has collected $21,114 in donations to help out charities, with $540 going towards the Make Poverty History charity. The donations are growing day by day and every little contribution helps.
