I so rarely send letters that I always have to go rooting around in a drawer to find the cache of Forever stamps I bought I can’t remember how many years ago. Good thing I have them since stamp prices are going up again next year. Combine that with crap like this that makes you want to do everything online, it’s no wonder people get pissed:
When Chris opened a letter from the Indiana Election Division, he was curious why in the world there would be a small Styrofoam cube inside the envelope. Luckily for everyone involved, there was an explanation.
Written on a strip of paper packed with the letter was the following declaration:
The Styrofoam cube enclosed in this envelope is being included by the sender to meet a United States Postal Service regulation. This regulation requires a first class letter or flat using the Delivery or Signature Confirmation service to become a parcel and that it “is in a box or, if not in a box, is more than 3/4 of an inch thick at its thickest point.” The cube has no other purpose and may be disposed of upon opening this correspondence.
