Another Fail....but not from me

There are times that our mailman misses a house on the street, and the entire neighborhood finds themselves shuffling mail with neighborhood houses.  An accidental oversight that I can understand - we all get distracted sometimes, right?

Every once in while I get the mail for a little old widow that lives four blocks over.  I'm not quite sure where the confusion is on this one - but again...I'll let it slide.

My mom still has my house number wrong, so the mailman will often ring the doorbell and ask, "You're Melissa, right? You'd better tell this person to change your address in their book!"

Every one of these situations is some degree.  However, in my mailbox today, I found this:

Bart and Kierra Allsip
8545 Walstreet View Blvd
Gahannon, OH  43230
(names and street changed to protect identity)

Not. Even. Close.

I'm not even sure that writing, "Not at this address," and placing it back in the outgoing mail is sufficient.  I think the only thing I can do is leave it out with a sticky note that says, "Uhhhh...., really?"

Probably the MOST disturbing thing...the only thing inside is a personal check.

We get things for a Rub Wilson all the time. The worst part is that you guys live in the same city and never get it. Rob is a lot closer to Rub that Brett is. Inside is a balance sheet stating that he has $12 in a bank account. I say we just take the money are run. Mailmen get way overpaid...I don't even know what they get paid but it's too much. Having said that, it probably is a really crappy job and more difficult that I think so I guess I should say anything.
