So... was your book of stamps taken or do just feel dumb? And was your letter time sensitive? Is that what makes this fml worthy?Overall, this seems like a pretty tame FML. If it makes you feel better. I've done stupider things. Like doing the "the ceiling" joke response to "what's up?" when outside, thrown an entire roll of toilet paper into the toilet instead of putting it on the TP holder, and have run full speed into an OPEN door giving myself a huge egg on my forehead for example. And all at an age that I will not publicly admit. So dont feel bad as stupidity is fairly common within nearly everyone, whether they'd admit it or not. Which is kind of frightening when you think about it. I sometimes feel like the human race as a whole really needs to get its shit together.
They put the entire thing of stamps in a mailbox. The FML here (besides the derp moment) is that it wasn't just a personal mailbox where they could just get it back out, but one of those locked barrels or whatever you want to call them that are specifically for putting letters to be delivered.
Plot twist: the post man/woman keeps up your book of stamps and takes it home to where they have a collection of random "discarded" stamp books. And each one is labeled with the post box number and location. And he makes up a little story about each one and how it came to be there. "One bright and sunny day, a book of flowery stamps decided to travel the world. It set off on its journey at post box #328. It was dark inside but full of life meeting the other happy stamps affixed to letters setting out on their journeys..."
