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.
