A nice young post office worker was sorting through her regular mail when she discovered a letter addressed as follows:

GOD, c/o Heaven.

Upon opening the envelope, the enclosed letter told about a little old lady who had never asked for anything in her life. She was desperately in need of $100 and was wondering if God could send her the money.

The young lady was deeply touched and passed the hat among her fellow postal workers. She managed to collect $90, and she sent it off to the old lady.

A few weeks later, another letter arrived addressed in the same way to God, so the young lady opened it. The letter read:

"Thank you for the money, God. I deeply appreciate it. However, I received only $90. It must have been those jerks at the post office!"
