No Mas


is holding my mom’s christmas present to me for ransom. While that could be punny (yes I meant to write punny) because my last name is Ransom and there you go. Take it or leave it.

I try to keep this blog light and fun and not to bitch about things in life. But this time I just have to. WHY is it so freaking difficult to get my CHRISTMAS PACKAGE!?!?! Grupo Correos/Aduanas (customs) feel that I am a merchant and I have to pay taxes because my mom wrote a value of $200. She didn’t know, and USPS should have told her, if it is a gift, write it is $1. And even though I have done everything they have asked me to do – fill out and fax the form with my info, my passport number, email, etc. plus stating it is only a present from my mother, I am not a commercial merchant. BLAH BLAH BLAH. Now after waiting for over two weeks since I sent the fax and hearing nothing but crickets I had my friend call to find out what’s going on – they say they didn’t receive the fax but they will check on it. My friend called today, now they want a list of everything in the package and how much each item cost. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!?!?

If my mom wouldn’t be charged for having it returned to her I would just say, fuck that, return it. But she would be charged at least $45 for return shipping cost. Isn’t this fun!?

Okay, I am done. This was post 199 for your information. I promise post TWO HUNDRED (!!!) will be full of joy and rainbows and puppies. And hopefully the statement of finally receiving a package.

  1. Well now i know to mark any packages $1 next time. But I think USPS has you mark it for insurance reasons? To ensure the package, or is that only UPS? Hmmm… Interesting!
    Poor Dot! She just wants you to have Christmas!
    Love you!
