An All Enveloping Problem

, | Working | June 4, 2014

(My father is an attorney, and has hired a new legal secretary. One of the items she has typed up goes to several people at different offices at various addresses. That night my father brings home the envelope and shows it to my mother.)

Father: “What do you see wrong with this envelope?”

Mother: “The secretary put all the names and addresses on ONE envelope!”

Father: “When I questioned her about it, she actually thought the mailman would go to each person’s address and wait for an answer.”

(She didn’t last much beyond that day.)
