I’m late as always on Mondays so this will be a short one. I took the padded envelope where I had put the film and drove to work early this morning. It’s the first day of the moose hunt and most hunters were already at their places, most because I met the first on to arrive to this area 🙂 They have always been late here. I most other places they go out to their spot long before the light returns, just so they won’t scare away any animals. Here they usually walk together talking rather loudly and have a good time. I’m not surprised at all that they always have problem getting any moose 🙂
Any way, the padded envelope with my film in it. There’s no mailbox even remotely close here and even if I know that I can put it in my own mailbox and the mailman then takes it with him, or her I’m not sure which now days I thought it best to bring it with me to the village where I work and put it in that mailbox. I couldn’t help but laughing for my self as I drove away, this is the week they all have been waiting for, many take vacation the entire week for this and the first morning has thick fog 🙂 I could barely see the road sometimes 🙂
Back to the letter, the padded one with my film in it. I suddenly came to think about Christmas cards. You see I almost always post my Christmas cards in that mail box and to be honest, lots of them never reach their destination, especially if they are headed over the ocean. I wonder if someone perhaps rob the mailbox stealing letters while looking for money in them? So I decided I shouldn’t use that box this Christmas.
Anyhow, I went there and just as I had dropped the padded envelope with my film in it I suddenly came to think about stamps and if I should have placed some on it? Back in the days no one ever put stamps on these envelopes because the competition of customers was so fierce that they rather pay for it themselves. Of course it was us customers that in the long run paid for it anyway but we didn’t have to put any stamps on those envelopes.
All day I’ve been thinking about this. I know any business rarely wants to pay extra to get a letter some idiot forgot to put stamps on 🙂 But I thought that if I e-mailed them and explained that I was prepared to pay extra and before they even started to develop any film that they might do it anyway. I thought of all kinds of ways to do it and it wasn’t until I came home and looked at another one of those padded envelopes that I realised I had been using my brain needlessly 🙂 It stood on the envelope that I don’t have to put stamps on it 🙂
Have a great day!
