Went to the post office Friday to mail two identical envelopes, one of each to two different addresses. Paid the $2 and in person watched the postal worker put the stamp on each one.

Today in the mail one of the envelopes was returned to my house with postage? written right next to the return address.

Not sure how they didn't notice the stamp in the top right corner.

Return to sender? Didn't Elvis Presley have a song about that?

My mail lady seems to be related to Cliff Clavin. Just a few days ago the neighbor delivered my package.

There are more mistakes made by the post office than any other business in the world. I could write a book on all the mail delivery and post office fiascos I've had over the last 20 years.

Normally after putting on a stamp they would hand cancel it. Once cancelled it's good to go even if the stamp falls off.

Some ladies at a post office the CHI where I used to go had:
-Stop
-Look at customer
-disappear

As a former employee of USPS, it truly is a wonder that any packages, or mail gets delivered correctly. Prime example of government waste.

Probably the weight exceed the threshold for the postage stamp. Either they are not absolutely identical or there is a bad scale somewhere.

Hard to "pick a winner". Too many breaks in the chain of possession.

"$2" worth of postage is a suspiciously round number.

How much government money did they waste?

As I recall, USPS is an independent agency and doesn't get any money from congress although congress tells them what to do.

The lady working there weighed both packages before she could calculate the postage! According to my receipt they both weighed 0.90 ounces and one envelope was shipped and the other returned to my house.
