postal humor on tax day
On April 14 I placed our 2008 IRS tax return and a stack of other bill payments in our mailbox out front. Fully aware of the dangers in using the mailbox this way these days, I clipped everything together with the note above to our carrier (Thank you - this includes taxes - yuk!) and set it there 1/2 hour prior to when she can usually be expected to work our neighborhood.
Soon afterward I saw the mail truck in front of our house and felt relieved to have that bit of business out of the way. Later, when I retrieved our mail I found the paperclip and my note with our postal carrier's written reply (Double Yuk!).
I was surprised how her handwriting resembles mine.
