So, I put out my bill for the internet in the mailbox,secure it,put up the flag - the mailman picks it up. Hey, this is how rural mail works.

We had a blizzard last night apparently. This morning I waded out through the drifts of snow out to the mailbox on the road that has yet to be plowed in order to put in more bills, Moo-mas cards, etc. My eyes were greeted with the sight of the flag still being up, the door open and the bill is missing.

Good luck finding a white return enclosure envelppe in 12 inches of snow in the woodlands! :P

I called the internet company to let them know. They will get a replacement hand delivered tomorrow, providing the road and driveway get dug out. I then get to pay my bank for a stop payment on the check that is literally lost to the winds. *sigh*

Snow days are great. But snow days with 60 mph winds the night before are not so much fun.

I'm always afraid that'll happen to me which is why I pay online or else I walk the couple of blocks to the grocery store and slip the bill in the secured mailbox that they have in which only the postman has the key to the box.

I'm so glad that you caught it in time and may karma pay back that person if it was stolen.

The ISP is so small they havent got it set up for online billpay. This is the first and only time it has ever happened to me, so its kind of wierd. Rural mailboxes don't have keys really. It was just very strange! *g*

My nearest neighbor is like two miles up the road from me! *g* I sincerely doubt anyone would have gone out in this crap with the idea of stealing my internet bill! ;-)
