Strictly for Amusement

This actually came a while ago, but I hadn't gotten around to doing anything about it - this despite the fact that I save it specifically to take a picture to show all of you.  This is a piece of actual mail that we received at work:

I've covered the addresses to protect, well, everyone.

Yes boys and girls, that is no fewer than thirty individual stamps in denominations ranging from one cent to twenty five in five different patterns.

The part that made it really funny was that it was a letter of complaint, and the complaint included the phrase "I am a professional!"  (emphasis mine.)  Yep.  Sure.  Whatever you say.  "Professional" is definitely what *I* thought when I saw that packaging...

To quote Cameron from Ferris Bueller:

"A professional what?"

Their opinion, or mine? Because I'll guarantee that we're gonna come up with different answers...

Well, "I am a professional douchewaffle" might be an appropriate title for that person, for the situation.... :)

What it LOOKS like is "I'm a six-year-old who got into mommy's stamp drawer."

That's what *I* got out of it. Seriously - you sent it certified, which means that you had to go to the counter anyway. You couldn't pony up $6.41 in cash to the clerk?

Of course...
The REALLY funny thing was that non-metered postage in such quantity is what the USPS tells us to look out for re suspicious packages :-D

At my previous job we'd oftimes receive packages from foreign countries (DING!) displaying such postage (DING!) and hand-addressed (DING!) to an individual (DING!), hand-wrapped in brown paper (DING!) with odd and/or oily stains (DING!, and smelling funny (DING!). OK, not really funny-smelling to me since I know what goatskin smells like and they still bind books thus in India and Pakistan. Still... ;-D

Re: Of course...
I would have been delighted to find a goatskin bound book inside, as opposed to a very petulant (and inaccurate) letter.
