I paid a bill by mail a couple weeks ago (they didn't have online bill payment).  They called me last week, saying my mail arrived in a plastic bag.  The letter and contents were all torn-up.  I mailed them a replacement check.  They mailed me the remains.  One of the USPS's sorting machines was hungry.

That happened to me once. I sent my sister a birthday card. Almost a year later, it was returned to me in a ziploc type bag. It was footprinted and a bit shredded, although not so much that you couldn't make out the addressee and address, so I'm not sure why it came back to me. I sent it back to my sister for the humor. I don't think she appreciated it much.

Torn-up mail has happened to me a couple times before.  One time a friend of mine who was in France sent me a postcard.  She remarked how nice the postage stamp was and asked if I liked it.  I couldn't answer because the corner with the stamp was torn-off.  I think that was intentional.  The stamp was so nice, someone in the delivery processing kept it.

I'm now careful when I pack items to ship.  I have a cousin who collects casino chips.  I sent her a couple chips from California casinos in what I thought was a rigid envelope.  When she got the chips, one was broken in two.  I now don't mail stuff like that in envelopes.

I've received one of those. In the bag was the back page of a catalog with my address on it.

You're getting this for no additional charge! You have to pay extra for "distressed" jeans.

Rates are increasing on Jan 22. Presumably that will include shredded mail in a bag letters as well as unshredded.

They just need to do the right thing (like Spike Lee said) and throw it in the trash, and forget it ever happened.

Then deny, deny, deny.

  Same here, except it was a magazine. I don't know why they bothered.

I ordered live fishes in mail before, from back of those magazines. They all arrived alive and well.

  I used to have a friend who did that with her romantic conquests. One day, she'd tell me all the details of a liaison...the next day she'd vehemently deny even knowing the guy.
