The fluffy mail magnetism theory

Has anyone else noticed that fluffy packages ALL seem to arrive together, even if they were ordered on different days?
They just never space themselves out.
It's day after day of waiting, and then a mail EXPLOSION.

And they seem to have terrible timing, too.
Every time my DH gets home from work early or we have guests over, it's a package avalanche.

Why?

Does this happen at your house?

Re: The fluffy mail magnetism theory

Mine is the total oppisite! The most I have ever had ordered at one time was about 15 right after Taxes and I kid you not they came one by one over 15 days! It was soooo annoying. At the time we lived in an apartment and I had to go up to the office everyday just to get one package. All I wanted was to be able to post a fluff mail post with a bunch of packages but no! My luck I couldnt get more than one at a time!

Me too! I've been ordering quite a bit of fluff because we're just starting out, and even though it's spaced over 3-4 days, they all arrive at once! I'm actually expecting that avalanche you speak of today or tomorrow. Weird.

I once had the trifecta:
Mail delivery
UPS delivery
and Fedex delivery.

All while my super frugal friend was over.

I was so ashamed. Until she left.
