"I want my two dollars!"
Mailman Dave delivered a piece of mail for Natalie last Thursday. It was a simple thank you from a friend written on a single piece of printer paper. The note was not folded flat but was crumpled, which is the only reason I can think of that would make two first class stamps insufficient postage. The envelope was stamped "postage due."
Taped to the envelope was this collection envelope:
We laughed at the extra bold numbering and underlining that signaled Mailman Dave's urgency in being paid and then set it aside with every intent to repay him in full. But we forgot about the debt for a couple of days.
We laughed, then we quickly gathered some coins and deposited them in our mailbox where they are waiting for Mailman Dave.
Our debt has been settled. Now, can we please have our mail?
