Today, I rushed to the post office to mail an important document for the study abroad program that I'd applied for, which was due in a few days. Just as the envelope slipped out of my hand and into the mail box, I caught a glimpse of the upper right corner where there was supposed to be a stamp. FML

if you were at the post office like you said then just ask one of the employees to get it for you... big deal

You should always make sure of those things. So YDI.

Yeah you deserve it.... but I know I have done that at least once in my lifetime, so you could have submitted one MUCH worse than this.

You were going to a study abroad program and missed it because you forgot a stamp on the envelope? The point is, people have done it but I'm pretty sure you haven't studied abroad "many times" That's the fml part.

I dare you to make less sense.

i accept your dare! ......pineapple.

YDI... Dumb mistake. Always double check the envelope to make sure its correct.

Yeah, I mean if it was 6pm and that was the absolute last day to deliver it, then yeah, FYL. But you could have just asked a post office employee for help.

Obviously, you care enough to comment.

u use a stamp on mail

YDI. If you still had a few days, why rush?

im guessing the op was sending it to another country.....

Sending mail to other countries has taken closer to weeks than days whenever I've tried it.... The only mail that gets there within a few days is local and if its local why didn't she just go drop it off? Maybe its different for some other countries, but in my experience, a few days for mailing something is guaranteed too late...

They'll mail it back to the return address if there is insufficient postage. So you'll find it in your own mailbox soon and can re-mail it properly then [unless you ALSO forgot to put a return address]. Since you have a few days before they're due, it might be fine.
