I SUPPOSE THERE’S A GOOD REASON   6 comments

GO FIGURE!

Recently I mailed a letter to a friend of mine in prison. In it I described the details of my April 15 accident and enclosed a picture of my poor car.

Today I received it back from the prison, opened and returned. I also received the following note from my friend.

“I received notice from our mailroom that you tried to send me a letter with pictures. However, the mailroom in its infinite wisdom decided I could not have it because pictures and letter were contained in the same envelope.

I am allowed to have both, just not if they come in the same envelope. So you should be receiving everything back in a separate mailing. What you will need to do is put the picture (no larger than 8×10) in one envelope, and your letter in another envelope. If they are in 2 separate envelopes, I will be allowed to have them.

Gotta love [the system].”

Thanks,

M

Of course I have two envelopes ready to mail. No other comment.

  1. I’m speechless. I would just LOVE to know what the “danger” is in “mixing” photos with letters. OMG.

  2. can you ask the administration why the decide this? Maybe they would tell you –

  3. I suspect the newsroom person is just following rules. There is so much to be done about our prison system. The answer, I’m sure, is lost in the complex of rules that develop on the assumption that every “felon” is a dangerous person.

  4. lol ridiculous!
