Going postal

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

Going postal

Post by Erik_Kowal » Sat Jul 16, 2005 5:24 am

One morning, a kind-hearted young post office clerk called Helena was sorting through the mail that had been classified as undeliverable that week, and noticed a letter addressed as follows:

c/o Heaven

Helena opened the envelope, and found herself reading a letter from an old lady who had never asked for anything in her life before but was desperately in need of $100, and who was wondering if God could send her the money.

The young woman was deeply touched, and she passed the hat among her workmates. She succeeded in collecting $90 in bills, including $15 from herself, and sent the money off to the old lady.

A few weeks later, another letter that was addressed to God in the same way arrived on Helena’s desk.

This letter read: "Thank you for the money, God. I deeply appreciate it. However, I only received $90 of the $100 I asked you for. I just know those bastards at the Post Office ripped me off!"
