navygirl96 tells us more.
Hi guys, I'm the author of this FML. To clarify I am not lazy or too busy for my mom. I work 10 hour night shifts and go to school. My mom is very sweet and was trying to help me out so I wouldn't have to make a special trip during my work week, and because she knew how excited I was for the card. My husband works 60 hour weeks so he probably didn't think about it. Thank you for the all the kind comments, many of you are very kind.

I was expecting this to end with her mum reading a dirty letter from her husband
#62, you're a 16-year old kid. You don't know what it feels like to get a letter from someone stationed abroad, especially when it's someone you love. Granted, I don't know and I'm only 13, but I still sympathize. It'd be like getting a Skype from someone abroad, but more romantic. Besides, she waited long for it only to be lost. It'd could've contained important info. Maybe he was coming back sooner than expected or later. The letter could've contained anything; souvenirs, something personal, but the point is, the letter was important to OP. It may not be important to you, but it was sentimentally valuable to OP.
Ah, I'm sorry. Hopefully he sends another letter? Or you can send him one telling him about the loss of the other letter...?
thats how it always goes, im in the service and if theres one thing that always gets screwed up its the mail
