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!”
