It is already after 8:00 PM
and I am just starting your letter. This is not a good thing.
I received not one, not two, but three letters from you this past week and I have sent you nothing. That is not acceptable. But I have been in yet another funk and put off writing to you.
I am not sure who the culprit is, but I would bet it is the mail room here. I received a letter from my parents two weeks ago and it arrived in just two days. Your Friday letter was postmarked on the 21st so I guess there was just not much letter writing going on in that area on Friday. Although it did indeed make it in the mail on Friday, I did not receive it till Tuesday the 25th. Are they taking an extra day to read my mail? And only the letters from you? Paranoid?
Your original double stuffed letter did make it through along with the backup copy. They both arrived in Friday's mail. The backup letter has the newer postmark and was stamped on the 25th; the original fat envelope had the older postmark and I can not tell the date. I am sending it back to you to see if you can make any sense of it.
One of my recent mailings to you was delayed by our internal mail room as they weighed the envelope and held it up till I gave them a disbursement form for the additional 24¢ postage. Why they do not sell us the 24¢ stamps I do not know.
I am enclosing a copy of the form I have to fill out to pay for the additional postage. It would seem pretty obvious that it cost more than 24¢ to print and process the form, but the alternative is to put on two 39¢ stamps.
Why should I waste my money? I might as well waste some more of the State’s money. Lord knows they are wasting more than enough of it already. Sorry to all the hard working taxpayers out there. Given the choice I would rather be paying the taxes than spending them.
Not bad, almost a whole page on just sending and receiving mail. The only mail I did receive this week was your two (three?) letters.
