Do not band!

August 2, 2012

When the postman (who’s actually a postlady) knocks on my door laughing at the legible parts of the packages she delivers, I’m happy to be making her job more pleasant but also terribly embarrassed.

The latest source of her mirth:

Do not band!

The package contains documents that shouldn’t be bent. Or banded, according to the warning. In the sender’s defense, the post office in Israel from which this package was sent was out of “Do not bend!” stickers and the Israeli postman (or lady) was forced to write the admonition from memory by hand, complete with an Israeli accent.
