Once the shit falls...

It would be funny if it weren't so stupid.

My paycheck from the last half of November was supposed to be sent to me
here in Des Moines. Due to a mix-up, it got sent to my Minneapolis
address.

I asked Rick to mail it to me down here. He did. He sent it priority
mail.

It didn't come.

Last night I had him check, and it had made it to Des Moines, but was
marked as "undeliverable as addressed", and was in the process of being
returned to sender. Which is weird, because I do receive mail here at
the apartment.

He did some further checking today. It turns out that because it was
sent priority mail, the mailbox must have a name on it, and not just an
apartment number. No name, no delivery.

SO they're delivering it back to the return address.

Except Rick didn't put a return address on the envelope.

So in approximately 6-8 weeks, I can start a claim to look for it in the
dead letter office.

Happily, D. is sending me a new check which should be here around
Tuesday. In the meantime, I'm putting my name on the mailbox, regardless
of the apartment policy.
