July is National Free Postcard Mailing Month

Ok, so maybe all postal mail cannot be free. But the post office should allow people to send postcards for free for one month every year. This month should be far away from Christmas, so let’s pick July. What a great month! It would work great for vacationers sending postcards.

To kick start this National celebration, I sent the above postcard from my work to myself at home. Check out the cool fake stamp with the zero cent mark.

Now the question is what will happen to this postcard when I try mailing it from the Tribune Tower:

A) It will arrive to the assigned destination of my home, because the post office rules.

B) It will bounce back to me from the post office with a “return to sender” stamp.

C) I will never see this postcard again.

Though I don’t know if it’s actually worth it to get a tatoo that large on your hand that says “returned to sender”. Or did the owner of this hand… Read more »
