I Take it Back

Posted by: Rick

This is a follow up post to Mail Box Success. I take it back. Between mid-November, when I wrote that post, and now, I've done two additional test mailings. After all, we are getting closer and closer to needing to forward our mail, and I want to continue to remind the postal carrier about us and our address. 

Unfortunately, neither of the subsequent mailings have been successful. Both have been returned.

I'm sending the most recent return, with its little yellow "Return to Sender, No Such Street, Unable to Forward" sticker back to a neighbor to actually show to the letter carrier and ask "what's up?" After all, why can't a letter mailed to an invalid Laramie, WY address, meant for a remote cabin in CO, to be delivered to a mail box at the Wooden Shoe Ranch, not find its way?

Comments:

Amazing how something everyone else takes for granted can be so difficult.

Argh!

Well, if there’s any consolation, it’s that almost nothing of value comes via snail-mail these days. (Amazon deliveries, maybe?!)

Bills, mostly. And, while I don’t look forward to them, I don’t want to miss any either.

Okay! The most recent mailing went through to the mailbox. Now, I think I’ll send a new letter each week to continue to train the postal carrier.
