Have you ever lost a package in the mail? If you have then you are very familiar with the 5 stages of losing a package. Stage One: Shock, “What!!! You haven’t received the package I sent you?” Stage Two: Denial, “There is no way you haven’t gotten the package. I know I wrote the right address on it.” Stage three: Anger, “I can not believe that the post office lost my package, they are going to be hearing about this!” Stage Four: Hopelessness, “It is gone! Gone forever, lost to the island of misfit packages. I will never see it again, it will never arrive.” Last but not least Stage Five: Acceptance, “I know it is gone but oh well, maybe it will turn up one day.” These were the 5 all too real stages I went through during my recent long lost package fiasco.
| The Story |
Recently, or more like October to be exact, my Grammy sent me a package. By now it was November, she never told me that she sent the package until she began to wonder why I never said “Thank You” or mentioned that I had gotten it.”You haven’t gotten the package I sent you yet? That is impossible!” she thought. But it was true I hadn’t gotten it. So you can definitely say were head deep in stage one of losing a package shock. Although, even with the ample time that had past we decided to give it a few more days because maybe it would arrive So the next week I checked the mail again and still no package.
By now stage two denial had sunk in leaving me thinking “there is no way my Grammy wrote down the wrong address! She has sent me packages before.” However, I did double check with her and just like I thought she had written down the right address. So where was the package? and Why was it taking so long? We needed answers and fast before it was lost forever.
This lead to stage three, anger! I check the mail over and over, I asked the nice lady at the front desk but she told me there was nothing there for me. My grammy had her sister check her mailbox to see if the package was returned but of course, it wasn’t! The months past October, November, December, and still no package. The final stages were upon us, hopelessness and acceptance. At first, I was hopeless but I wished it would turn up even if it were months from now. Then I began to accept it and out of nowhere the package arrived!!
This is where the happy ending begins one month later on January 15th the package had finally arrived. I was checking the mail, as usual, I brought my package slip to the front I knew what it was, my wedding stuff but the lady was holding a small yellow package too. That was odd and to my surprise, it was the lost package! I smiled and laughed a little, thanked the nice lady and all I could think was, I knew it would arrive. Better late than Never, I always say!
