The other night I finally watched a Netflix DVD I've had for probably 4 weeks or more. Needless to say things have been pretty busy as of late (even without a job). My grandma was already in bed by the time I put the DVD in the pre-paid return envelope. As I walked around the kitchen I pondered where I should put the DVD so that I would remember to put it in the mailbox the next day. I decided the small desk space in the kitchen made the most sense. I put it return address up and went to bed.
The following morning I walked past the desk a few times and by the 10th time I noticed a Netflix DVD sitting there in the white sleeve, not the envelope. I was slightly confused to say the least! I asked my Grandma what happened there and she went into a rampage of "Well I don't know what that was, what is it, it was just sitting there this morning when I got up, this big red thing, so I opened it and that was what was inside! What is it?!"
I then tried to explain that sometimes I will have mail coming in that big red thing, and that I then have to send it back. She didn't understand and asked "Why would you want to do that?!" I tried a different route to explain that some movies I just don't want to buy and this was like renting them for a short time. That went a little better, but I think she still thinks I'm crazy.
I looked online how to return DVDs without the red envelope (thanking God that she didn't throw all of it way). I found a card envelope that didn't have a card and sent it off 2 stamps later. Do people really take things to the post office to weigh and post, or are they like me and stick a few stamps on it and call it good. Hopefully for the post office I'm over paying to ship things each year and keeping them in business.
Thanks God: Sometimes people do silly things that do not make much sense. Thank you God for your understanding and forgiveness when we do silly things that are not of you.
