Fishy Circumstances

Envelopes and handwriting

When I receive hand-addressed mail from the US or Canada, I am excited. It's probably a letter from a friend or a card from my family!

When I received hand-addressed mail from England, I am not excited. I am charmed, but not excited, because nearly all of the hand-addressed mail I receive from England is from my bank there. They don't hand address regular statements, but do with anything else - new checkbooks, change of policy brochures, or today's arrival - my new chip+pin card.
