We sort your mail @ the library

An elderly lady brought a piece of junk mail to the desk. It was the kind that is disguised to look like airmail and it said something about an African country on the front, but there was US postage and a US return address on the back. The poor little lady was all disturbed because she didn't know anyone in that country and why would they send her a letter? (It was unopened. I wondered if she thought it had anthrax in it or something.)

I explained the concept of junk mail to her as best I could. She seemed to understand and walked away looking relieved.
