AN OPEN LETTER TO FEDEX

Dear FedEx,

I placed an order for two gargantuan bras from Lane Bryant last Wednesday. I am sorry to have to admit this but I am down to only one bra. We matronly busted girls tend to hate to fork over the large sums that are required for bras of such massive construction. I have dutifully followed their travels with the handy little tracking system that you have on your site. It is so nifty and I would like to take this time to thank you so much it.

I was fine with having to wait a bit for my order until yesterday FedEx. Yesterday the unthinkable happened. Yesterday the under wire on my left side sprang to life and decided to run away. Not knowing WHY that is a big deal FedEx is a blessing. Just take my word on that.

So I began in earnest to track the progress of my brassieres. Did you know FedEx that they have now been in Dallas for two days? TWO WHOLE DAYS? Are they catching a Dallas Stars game FedEx? Gone to Six Flags? Or ARE THEY BEING TEST DRIVEN?!?!?!?

Is that it FedEx? Are my bras being worn by a big burly FedEx driver??? Maybe as ear muffs to keep his LARGE ears warm? Maybe as a cute lacy hat that sits upon his GREAT BIG BALD HEAD? Or maybe he's just as a man who has a penchants towards women's undergarments???

You have 2 more days to get them here FedEx or there is going to be a throw down. With me having a wobbly left tata, it shan't be pretty.

  3. yo, dogg! I'm just laughing because evertime I walk past your door you give me the Where's Waldo update of Women's Undergarments. It's like trying to keep track of Santa on Christmas eve...

  5. OMG! What if they are being test driven? Seriously what would you do?

    I am miserable without a bra! Miserable. I swear when they are loose, my skin feels like its being stretched like leather so I always keep one in reserve.

    Good luck to Mr. FedEx Man where ever he is.

  7. Dijea..I am wearing the bra. It is just got full coverage underwire on one side.

  8. Yes Lynn....let's. This is a matter of importance!

  9. Lol, it wouldn't be just a head warmer it would also be a chin warmer too, if he would strap is all the way around. Twice the warmth, is all I am saying.

  10. As big as they are gator...I am sure he could wrap them around his head at LEAST 2 times.

    I could have gone to Dallas and gotten them at this point!!

  11. Heck, I'm down to two gargantuan bras, too.

    I like the Glamorise. Industrial strength bra.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh gosh... you despaately need to come visit me again so we can go to the Hanes outlet... those Vanity Fair bras that cost upwards of $40 and more? $20 and less. And yes, that includes industrial supersized ones. Other brands too. You could stock up for years on what I know you paid for those Lane Bryant ones...

  13. Hee hee! But I sympathize. I hope they come tomorrow--otherwise you'll have to wait until Friday!

  14. Hope everything gets battened down soon!

  15. Not TEST driven, they're being BREAST driven......

    The FedEx driver is probably a young Jayne Mansfield look alike who is trying out your order before placing her own. Or......even scarier......his.

  16. I hope the darn things make it in before Thanksgiving!

  17. AAAAAAAAAAAAABAAAAAAAAAAAHHHAAAAAA!! That is a good one. I remember that whole business well.
    (pre surgery) :o)
    I dare you to send it to them!

  18. You had me at gargantuan...

    ReplyDelete
  19. I feel your pain! I have a wire just slightly sticking into the side of me right now, but have I done anything? NO. Because the gargantuan bra is difficult to find for less than around $40 each. So we put up with minor pain, until we can't take it any more (after reading this, I am almost there...) I'm a Lane Bryant girl all the way. So sorry.

    Plus, I tagged you on my blog.

  20. So, did they arrive?

    ReplyDelete
  21. After you're done with them do you donate them to the circus for a tent?
    Hope all ends well!!

  22. I just can't help but wonder if they got there. It reminds me of a song that Bette Middler sang (maybe in Beaches, but I can't remember). It was about the first bra, but somewhere in there she called it an "over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder" and I have never forgotten it.

  23. NEWSFLASH for those who just really need to know: YES! Mindy DID receive her new bras so she is no longer in danger of flashing anyone accidentally... or otherwise.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Thanks Flutterby, I was just coming to see if her titty-bloomers had arrived! That must mean she is out shopping today? Mindy, I am so glad you got yourself supported and stabilized!

    Reminds me of the joke about religious bras:

    What religion is your BRA?

    There are the Catholic, the Salvation Army, the Presbyterian, and the Baptist types.

    CATHOLIC: SUPPORTS THE MASSES

    THE SALVATION ARMY: LIFTS THE FALLEN

    THE PRESBYTERIAN: KEEPS THEM STAUNCH AND UPRIGHT

    BAPTIST: MAKES MOUNTAINS OUT OF MOLE HILLS

  25. Wow, Mindy. I hope your support system is in place by now.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh wow. Do keep us posted on the status of the FedEx Cup! Ha! I made a funny. Get it? Cup??? I crack me up.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ah hahahahahahahahahahaah!
    I hope your bras arrive soon, I really truely do. I sympathize. Snort! Ha!Just sign me,
    Another with large tatas

  28. Hadn't dropped by for a read in a while. Thanks for the laughs. Did they come?

    ReplyDelete
  29. Hi, Mindy.
    Yes, unfortunately, I do know of such things! Hope you got your "over the shoulder boulder-holders!" You are hilarious.
    I am glad to see you haven't been posting a lot either.
    I have just been too busy.
    Gingerbean looks to be about the same size as Chelsea. Chelsea is 14 lbs. We are in love. Doug has already said "the next time, we are going to get a red & white." :-)
    Happy Holidays!
