I mail a lot of Mother’s Day cards and also personally give away many. I went to the South Jordan post office on May 7 to mail them. By mistake, I mailed all the cards, even the ones I had meant to give away. The giveaway cards had only single names written on them, no last names, addresses or return addresses. Besides this, they each had a monetary gift in them.
I realized my mistake at about 11 p.m. the same night. I was at the post office again at 9 a.m. the next morning. The manager there gave me a paper to fill out with the information that would be needed to find them. He faxed this information to the Salt Lake post office because the cards had already been sent there before being sent to the missing letter department in Atlanta, Georgia.
Later on in the afternoon, I received a phone call from the man at the post office telling me that he had found my cards. He said he put them in the mail and I should receive them in a day or two. I received them the next day in time to give them to those I had planned to remember.
How great is this? I appreciate their service and willingness to help.
