Stop, Chocolate Thief!

One of the things that I have discovered recently is that chocolate can turn someone into a criminal. The postal service employees cannot be trusted when it comes to chocolate.  Sending gifts in the mail to my children overseas has always been expensive and difficult. Sometimes things have gotten broken or lost and maybe even stolen, but this time somewhere along the way from Norway to Denver a simple chocolate bar was cut out of the bottom of an envelope and all that remained was a birthday card. Since the envelope was marked with a toll sticker that stated the contents clearly, I can only assume that the thief had an incredible urge for chocolate. What has the world come to when the desire for chocolate outweighs a simple morality lesson that should have been installed at birth? Have you ever experienced problems with the postal service? I am looking forward to the day when we can transport merchandise instantly over the internet. Imagine if we could “Whisper” merchandise just like we can do on Amazon, and while sitting on Skype we can see that chocolate bar or whatever, suddenly appear in front of our intended receiver. I can dream can’t I?

Wonderful thought, Sis... But I don't think we will see that in our lifetime.

Did you ever think that the chocolate was confiscated? The postal service may not allow food to be sent overseas.

There are so many new rules and regulations these days, I wouldn't be surprised if that was why it was taken.

Then again, if it was a chocoholic .... LOL.

Have a great weekend.

That sucks! One...simple.

The postal service here in the Philippines is horrible as well. I don't use it, opting for Fed Ex or other carriers.

The postal workers here will conveniently 'lose' mail and packages, especially sent from the U.S.

When my son was stationed overseas he never recieved a lot of his candy's sent in care packages. : / With every care box he would call or write and tell us is was all torn and ripped open when he got it. Many times I was tempted to draw candies on the outside of the envelopes I sent letters to him in just saying, "Hope you enjoyed the candy that was sent, and BTW you are welcome!" I wasn't sure if the same person would handle the letter. : )

Didn't I already write a comment on this post? Am I living in an alternate reality, or are there just more chocolate thieves than originally suspected?
