Yes, I'm a Small Business Owner & No, I Don't Control The Post Office

by Emily Waddell

Here's the thing my friends, small business owners are people too! They have holiday travel plans and want to spend time with their family too. And I promise they're working around the clock to get your packages out on time! But there is only so much small business owners can do. Yes, I'm a small business owner...and no, I can't control the post office. Christmas magic does not happen within the mail system! PLEASE respect the holiday shipping deadlines for small businesses! Small businesses want their customers to be happy  and receive their gifts in time. That's why we set deadlines!  Unfortunately Christmas magic does not happen within the mail system! Nope, no Christmas miracles will magically make your package appear! Just order your damn gifts on time this holiday season.
