We need a meme for "the look the customs officer gives you when you declare $200 worth of postcards and nothing else" when coming home from an international trip haha.



If reminds me of the day I was in London and there was a bag check for entering a Christmas market :
Guy : Wow, your handbag is heavy. What do you have in there ?
Me : Postcards.
Guy : What ?
- Postcards.
- WHAT ?
- You know, those things you write on, put a stamp and send. Postcards.
- No, I mean the big, heavy parcel here.
- Yes, postcards.
- Impossible.
- You don't know me.
Guy opens the parcel, an avalanche of postcards happens.
- Those are POSTCARDS !
- Yeah, I told you...


Noooo... :roll: (I need a emoji that spits out its coffee).

Adding to the rules:
30. While you are in a very interesting/exotic location: Look! (everyone gets excited, cause maybe you spotted something like a rare animal or so). A mailbox! (And my partner tries to hide, cause he doesn't want to get associated with me.)

Adding to the list:

31. When you take all of your postcards to the post office to be hand canceled.
32. Because you take all of your postcards to the post office to be hand canceled, the postal workers greet you by your first name when you walk in the door.

Do you think they've been READING my postcards???

I don't know if the postal workers have time to read the mail (especially long messages). But there was a PostSecret (https://postsecret.com/) once that said "Mail carrier if you read this message, tear off a corner of the card" and it had the corners ripped off.

They do read the postcards if they are curious. My old mailman loved reading and seeing the postcards with his coworker.

Today I have an interesting story for you :)

in August, as part of the tag, I sent a postcard to a user MaggieStNJ from USA. And this morning I received from her such a message:

"I received your card today.

It was forwarded to me in an envelope as it was incorrectly delivered to another address.

The other person lives about 100 miles away in Los Angeles - and is another Post Crossing member!!"

Do you think, is it an amazing coincidence or the manifestation of this rule? :D

22. The mail carrier delivers all postcards to you, even those addressed to someone else in the neighborhood, because you're "the person who gets all the postcards."


I agree with #22 because my post officers sometimes put others' postcards in my box. They said like you said... because I am the one who gets all the postcards. I rent a P.O.Box. So, in my case, it is easier to reroute to other P.O.Boxes.
:D

I have been running for the mailbox to post in time for collection of the mail. :P

@ALL: please use small sized photos, large photos distort pages and difficult downloads.

Thank you! :)
