return to sender.

Standard

i recently made halloween cards

for all of my grandies and nieces

and sent them out early

to make sure they arrived in time

imagine my surprise 

when i opened my mailbox

and found a letter 

that i had sent out  

a day earlier

only to have the post office 

deliver it back to me

instead of sending it on ahead

somehow they had managed

to process it on the back of the envelope

and decided that my return address sticker 

was where it should be delivered

i often wonder about their logic

and am pleasantly surprised

when things actually get

to where i had intended them to go

 i will try again tomorrow 

and tell them that it should go

to where the mailing address is

on the front of the letter.

“you know you’re a fool when what you’re doing

makes even the post office seem efficient.”

exchange.

staff members of the slovak and slovenian embassies meet once a month to exchange incorrectly addressed mail.

close enough, but alas, two very different places. 

i should organize this with my neighbors.
