SERIES: Lost Purse Part 3

This is a series about a certain purse owned by the Sangl Family.  Unlike every other series I have written, I am NOT excited to be writing this one.

Part 3 – A Chance

Jenn was devastated over the loss of her purse.  I gave her some money to go get the Chinese food and started unloading the car.

About ten minutes after Jenn had left, my cell phone rang with the caller ID reading "Jennifer Sangl".  I thought, "Jenn has found her phone!"

I answered the phone and said, "Jenn!  You found your purse!"

A voice on the other end said, "Hello?"

Short story – the caller was the McDonald's employee.  They had went out in the lobby and Jenn's purse was still sitting IN THE LOBBY.  It had been there for over seven hours!

I asked the caller to tell me her name and told her that if she would mail it to me, there would be a reward.  I think she is a teenager – she had no clue about how to mail something.  No clue!  I had to walk her through exactly how to mail it.

That was on Sunday evening.

On Monday, late in the morning, I received another phone call from Jenn's phone.  The girl was at the post office to mail the purse!  She said, "I have no money.  Can I use some of the money in the purse?"  Apparently, the money was still in the purse!!!

My answer?  AB-SO-LUTE-LY!

    I asked my teenager to mail something for me the other day. He is 16, A/B average student, Junior in high school, even taking college courses. He was unable to mail a letter correctly!!!
    I was very taken aback by this revaluation! After arguing with me that “why can’t I just email or text the information”, I finally explained to him how to address an envelope correctly.
    Scary thing for the US Postal Service when our youth do not know how to use the mail!
