My bank statement is a rather depressing read these days. The savings I worked 65+ hours per week to amass, are dwindling much faster than they grew; my interest rate has bottomed out, my electric bill was $20 higher this past month; and I don’t even want to think about how cold I’ll be this winter give the increase in natural gas prices.

With all of those hardships already in place, it’s a bit alarming to get a bank statement that has been brutally mangled by the USPS. Of course they apologized (see below), and I did what only a person who recently bought her first digital camera would do– I took many, many pictures, and posted them on the internet.
