So I am currently sitting here giggling.
We got our invites in, and I sat down to stuff envelopes while we were watching TV. My FI wanted to help, so I handed him a stack of stamps that he could put on after I finished putting everything in the envelope. I paid absolutely no attention to what he was doing as I was more focused on getting everything in the envelope without bending anything, and sorting out certain people’s invites (international guests, a few wedding party members who I wanted to put extra info for)
Once I was done I went and looked at the envelopes my FI had proudly completed. All the stamps are sideways. Every single one. Now, I know the postoffice won’t care, and most of our guests won’t notice, but I just looked at him and went “Really?” He didn’t even realize that he didn’t it wrong. I’m pretty sure he still doesn’t realize why it’s wrong.
I kind of feel like I’m in one of those comercials where the dad messes up the laundry. I really do find it funny, and just wanted to share.

I found this too!
Apparently, stamp positioning have different meanings. 🙂

This is why I didn’t let anyone help me. My mom put the labels on my favors upside down after I had spent like nine hours assembling all of them.

My FI did the same thing! Fortunutly it was just our test invitation but I look over after handing him the stamps and the cake is sideways! Too funny!

@Misswhowedding: Oh my god. That’s so funny. I can just imagine you doing one of those “Really?” looks that Jim does on The Office like this:

Don’t blame him. The post office clerk told me to put them on the wrong way. Luckily I put on my glasses first and saw which way they really went. As far as your guy, at least he went with the correct position for the flag. Points for that!

@Misswhowedding: Lol! Sounds like something my guy would do! Especially if he was watching tv or something. He has a one track mind. Men!

Whenever I use those particular flag stamps I tend to put that one on sideways as well!
As you said, people probably won’t notice and the PO is fine with it. However, if you want to try, I’ve noticed that I can peel off the new forever stamps and reapply without problem. Maybe after the adhesive sets a while you can’t, I don’t know, I’ve only done it within a few minutes or maybe a couple hours.
