NEW YORK (AP) — Most U.S. Postal Service customers realize
it’s going to take a few days for their mail to reach its destination, but
some New York City residents believe 23 days between pickups is a
bit much. .
Mortgage payments, parking ticket fines and “a whole stack ot
Mother’s Day cards” on Tuesday came tumbling from an overstuffed
mailbox that apparently hadn’t been emptied for more than three
weeks, said Rep. Gary Ackerman, D-N.Y.
The congressman’s staff looked into the problem after constituents
complained they were receiving past due notices for things they
knew they had paid.
Ackerman said all but one of the post cards his staff members
mailed from mailboxes in the Queens neighborhood to his Washing-
ton office arrived, enabling them to pinpoint the forgotten mailbox.
Four hundred pieces of mail were retrieved from the box, includ-
ing some stamped with the date by a postage meter. m ,
“There was a whole stack of Mothers’ Day cards,” he said. “I
guess some mothers are wondering why they were forgotten.”
The congressman said he asked the local postmaster to write a let-
ter that people who might have incurred late payment penalties could
send to their creditors.
They were also considering marking the mail as delayed, although,
Ackerman said, “They don’t have a stamp that says, ‘Oops, We for-
got your mailbox existed.’”
So the car hit a milk truck and the police cai
skidded on the spilt milk and hit a lamppost.
That's the truth. Now, how am I going to
explain this to my insurance company?
It’s easier at the Insurance Store.

A lady shopper decided to stop for s cup of coffee. She
bought a small sack of cookies, put them Into her purse,
and went to a coffee shop. All the tables wars filled except
for one where a man sat reading hit paper. She took the
empty chair, opened her purse, took out a magazine and
As she looked up and reached for a cookie, she saw the
man taking a cookie from the same sack. She said
nothing, but glared at him. Ha Just smiled at her, and she
resumed her reading.
Moments later she reached for another cookie, only to
see the man also taking another cookie from the sack. Now
feeling quite angry, she stared at the remaining cookie In
the sack-whereupon the man reached over, broke the
cookie In half, and offered her a piece. She grabbed It,
stuffed In Into her mouth, then glared at the man as ha
again smiled, rose and left.
It ruined her whole coffee break! Angrily, the woman
opened her purse to put her magazine away, and there waa
her sack of cookies! All along, she had been helping
herself to the cookies that belonged to the gracious man
at tha table.
