A New Record!

So, we send out mailings from time to time - you know, direct mail. And we always get a bunch of them returned to us - people move, we enter a typo on the mailing list, whatever. Most come within several days of the mailing. The vast majority of them get where they're going on time. But, we always get some back later than that. Sometimes weeks, even several months go by. Today, we got one in from a mailing we did last March. Yup, check the postmark - March 20th, 2007. We got it back today, February 1st, 2008 - over 10 months later! (don't believe me, check the yellow label the post office popped on the postcard - dated 1/30/08!)
I really don't like to be a Postal Service basher, and 99.9% of our mail gets where it's supposed to go, but, 10 months?
