Thought I'd share with you a letter that arrived in my mailbox at work today.
Today's letter comes from Deloris XXXXXXXX in Chicago. It's actually pieces of paper, folded with one staple holding it shut. It has 2 badly placed postage stamps. It is addressed to Payroll at my place of employment.
I will type the letter as it was typed, including typos. I've X'd out some of the identifiers but she has street names and addresses included.
The first page reads:

I shared it with my bosses this afternoon, we all had a hearty laugh. Later my CEO came in to tell me that I wasn't so special, she got one too. However, hers did not include a photograph of the woman. Mine did. I win!
