Going postal.

Ok I bought a copy of the game postal 2 back in 2003. Wonderful game for most folks. Others would hate it. I played and beat the game about a dozen times. Took it off my computer to save space and forgot about it. Time passed and word came out that a brand new expansion pack was coming out for it. I pre-ordered the expansion pack back in 2003. Come christmas time it got put back to mid 2004. Mid 2004 it got canned again. They said expect it for the christmas season 2004. Christmas time was there again and crap. Held back to june 2005.
At last as June rolled around my copy that I had paid for and pre-ordered in 2003 was in at last!
I was drooling! It was all the built up excitment from thinking what all crazy adventures the postal dude was going to be going thru next that had me foaming at the mouth.
I read the readme for the game. "Requires an installed copy of Postal 2 or Postal 2 share the pain to run"
No problem I am thinking. Easy cheesy it's on my computer desk protected by a thin layer of dust....

I go to the computer room....Alas.....
*Gasp*

It's not there.....

I search thru the desk throwing things left and right....

Empty handed..

The month of June passes, the entire house has been searched, no stone left un turned....

I give up around July 14th. I can't find it anywhere and then while sitting down to have a tea party with my daughter she comes to serve me invisible muffins on a plate....

A plate that looks like something I've seen before.....

Could it be?

Yes! I think! This is it! The holy grail of my games!

Throwing aside the invisible muffins to the shock of my daughter I lift it up and look at it in the light excited and elated to of found my lost game!

I gleefully turn it over to see the marks where ainvisible muffins had been made just that morning or over many mornings on my very game....

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alas.....

Sitting back and drinking a invisible shot of laced invisible tea I sigh and venture off to the internet to search for another copy of this game.

All the big name game stores all laugh at my phone calls... What? Postal 2? Dude they have not made that in forever! That's like, old.
I search e-bay and see a copy going for 53 dollars.

Amazon is even a worse story....

So if anyone out there, knows where to find a cheap copy of this game I will gladly reward you the best that I can within reason if someone could help me to secure this long lost game.
As I sit now at the computer the brand new expansion pack taunts me sitting there unplayed.
ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Well I found one copy on ebay that was for 12 bucks counting shipping. With hope it's in great condition as I bought it.
