So I was excited to get a lot of postcard swaps in the mail today. Suddenly my heart sank when I saw the back of one postcard with a giant X crossed over it. As it turns out my mail was misdelivered to another person in the building who crossed out the back of the postcard and wrote “MOVED” (even though the address was correct, it was just misdelivered). When I looked on the front of the postcard it had a big stamp mark from the post office that had several checkboxes, one of which was checked “Return to sender”. The stamp mark on the front of the postcard basically defaced the whole card. But somehow someone must have clued in that I had not moved and that it was all a big mistake, so the mailman delivered it to me after all.
It was kinda painful to see the postcard treated so disrespectfully on the back and the front. If I got someone else’s mail by accident, I would deliver it or put it back in the mailbox. This was my first mailbox horror story. Wondering if others have experienced any mailbox horrors?
- What’s your mailbox horror story (if you have one)?
- What did you end up doing with the postcard?
Jetoy cat postcards will be sent to 11 people whom I’ve announced on September 14th:
People can continue to post their mailbox horror stories, but only those announced on September 14th will be getting the free cat postcard. Thanks to everyone who shared their stories. Sorry I’m not able to send to places where we have a postal restriction in place.
