Diary of a missing postcard: Monday

I made the trip to the local post office on my lunch break last Monday to pay my 34c and retrieve my card.

No line at the PO - bargain! Pay 34c - easy. 

Counter worker brings me a card and I leave. As I am walking to my car, I look at the card - it isn't addressed to me, instead it is for a neighbor. I almost leave and deliver the card myself (and would have if the line had been long), but I have received a lot of incorrectly addressed mail recently, so I go back in and gave the card back. The guy isn't sure exactly what to do, so I just say not to worry about the 34c (the beleaguered post office needs it more than I do) and go on my way.

I thought this was the end of the saga, but if you tune in tomorrow you'll be able to read the last installment.


  1. Phillip,
    I got one of your Metro Maps P.C.
    Part of your address was missing.
    "Thank you". It was very interesting.
    How did you make it?

    1. Hi, glad you liked it. I made it in photoshop then printed it onto the card (I buy postcard sheets that feed through the printer). It is a redesign of a real-world metro map - have you figured out which one?
