Did you know that anything you mail in an envelope this size is automatically considered ‘oversized’ by the United States Postal Service?

 

Regardless of its weight… it cost more than .39 cents….

 

I know this simple fact for one reason…

 

And to my #1 fan Amanda…feel free to blast me for this one too! (She loves my blog)

 

For the second week in a row, I have received an 8 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ mailer with a resume from someone looking for employment….

 

With POSTAGE DUE!

 

What a great way to make a first impression… I have to go to the post office to pick up a package, only to find that I owe postage on it….

 

Before I can see what it is or who it’s from I have to decide if I A) want to return it to the sender, or B) pay the postage due and get to see if it’s anything important.

 

So now I’ve paid to see if it’s anything important…and it’s someone looking for a job…

 

NOW THAT’S A FIRST IMPRESSION!
