Good Mail Day.
I got a layout picked up a couple of days ago by Memory Makers Magazine.
They are out-sourcing their imaging now, which means that my layout goes to a digital imaging company, and not to the magazine itself.
This could be a good thing. The company also takes care of mailing the layouts back to the submitters.
They have a really cool system, these digital imaging people...you enter all your information online, and then hit "Print Label." It automatically prints two UPS labels, one is to be included in your package as your return label.
The best part?
Free for me.
The digital image company foots the bill for both packages. Cool! No more out of pocket expense for me to send the requested layouts and documentation.
So I happily mailed my *free* package yesterday.
And today, UPS shows up at my door.
With my package.
Apparently I attached the return mailing label to the package, and in essence mailed the package TO MYSELF.
And the guy remembered me.
He said, "Didn't you drop this package off yesterday?"
And I said, "Yes, I did. I just wanted to make sure I would have a good mail day today."
Needless to say, I switched the stupid labels, and re-sent it today.
