Walked in the rain to the post office holding/transfer station in Interbay today. I got a little thinggy saying I have registered mail to pick up and sign for. This is the second time I've had to go pick something up there because I don't think they even bother to see if anyone's home to sign for certified and registered mail anymore, we just get the slips. But fine, whatever I'm unemployed I'll walk over there. I needed some motivation to get me out in the rain to talk a walk. I get there and sign for it, pretty certian that--unless it was a large novelty check from Goldsmiths for the deposit money I'm owed back (but will probably never get)--the parcel was my MA diploma. It was a thin, large envelope that came into my hands ripped. Didn't open it there though, should have complained about it there. But I protected from the rain, got it home and sure enough when I opened it, the diploma itself was ripped.

I know it's not a big deal but it spoiled my "wooo neat!"  moment and turned it into a "hurumph, hurumph" moment. Boo.
So yeah I have to bitch about it. On FB I wrote a status update about it and blamed USPS. That's not completely fair, though. There's a 50-50 chance it was USPS or Royal Mail who couldn't follow the implied directions of the words "Do Not Bend."

I am so sorry that it came to you ripped, I would be totally heartbroken as well. But the good news, is that you got it...you worked your ass off and you will find that dream job.

Yeah I emailed the University Department of Distributing Diplomas and requested a new one with a picture of how it came to me. Will see what they say.

Hopefully they'll get you a new one pronto. In the meantime you can frame that one under a piece of cracked glass. It seems fitting, doesn't it?
