Misplaced mail
To the Editor:
I ordered a package and had it delivered to the post
office; it was received by the local post office but I never
received it or a notice that I had a package.
I was first told that I may have misplaced it and then
maybe it was put in someone else’s box. Then I was told
to contact the company and maybe they would send me
another one. This is not the company’s fault nor mine.
It’s the post office’s fault.
If you received a package by mistake that was ad-
dressed to me, would you please return it to me.
Thank you,
LaRae Kindle, Heppner
