You better chillax boo. Can’t be online making terroristic threats against federal agencies. Tsk tsk.

Deep breaths!! It’s going to be fine. When is your wedding? Do you not have enough time to get them out in time?

I don’t think I’ve felt this kind of rage or frustration before.

Perhaps an opportunity to reflect on what must be quite a happy and privileged life thus far, no?  I don’t mean that snarkily.  Truly, if this is the most upset you’ve been in your life, this seems like an excellent time to redirect those feelings and really count your blessings  🙂

Yikes. I understand being upset, but…if one day difference (potentially…you may get them today) is enough to make or break your invitations going out on time then perhaps you should have planned better and ordered them earlier. If anything, I would advise your friend to call and try to get the difference in the money she spent shipping them priority vs. regular mail.

Um, no. What is wrong with you?! They are invites, not a vital organ you need for transplant. Get it together, drink a glass of wine and take a bath. Calm down and act like an adult.

livingdoll58:  Keep this up and you won’t have to worry about invitations,  as you will be recovering from a stroke.

A day or two either way, is not a big deal for invitations.

You planned poorly and want to blow things up? A totally justified response.

Definitely a time to learn some self care and how to deal with disappointment when things are of our control.

I would take this as a lesson on how to control my emotions. Yikes. I would not want to be your bridesmaid or Maid of Honor, I would be afraid of doing anything to displease you even though it may not be my fault… like the wind blowing a hair strand away from my perfectly coiffed hair that you paid for… not my fault, but you sound like you may blame me for it anyways.

Hopefully the invitations are just running late because they’re still being sorted along with other mail and not because the driver was in accident…. Just breathe- it will be ok.

Calm down. Call USPS first and see what they say. Sounds like they could be either lost or left behind on truck. Happened to me once and package came day or two later. It won’t do much difference because of memorial weekeend anyway.
