i just re-mailed three invitations that were sent back for additional postage. it seemed a little odd since they were weighed and measured to be sure the postage was correct when they were first mailed. i explained the situation to the post office employee, hoping our theory that these three got spit back out during the sorting process was true.
post office employee: you need 13 more cents.
me: but the others went through just fine.
post office employee: well, you may be getting those back too.
me: they’ve already been received.
post office employee: then maybe the recipient was charged.
me: i think they’d mention if they were charged 13 cents.
post office employee: well, then maybe you lucked out and they just didn’t get caught.
me: you’re telling me that about 100 of these just ‘slipped through the cracks’?
post office employee: i guess so.
