Where's My Mail?

Where's My Mail?

I don’t want to sound like Lansberry, the legendary Pittsburgher who walked around town for decades with a protest sign saying that the government was withholding his mail, but I’m missing about 300 pieces of mail.

My problem started in June when I went to my local post office and filled out a mail forwarding card, as I do every year in June, stating that our mail should be re-routed temporarily to our house in Sea Isle, New Jersey, for five weeks.

We probably get an average of 10 pieces of mail a day, not counting the junk mail, so in five weeks that’s about 300 pieces of mail.
 
It worked every year, except this year. Each week, we’d get no mail for four or five days and then one piece would arrive.
 
I checked Sea Isle’s post office and they had no idea of why so little mail was arriving.
