Paying bills is fun!

The quarterly municipal water and sewer bill arrived this week. While not my favorite kind of mail to receive, I do love working utilities, so I sat right down and paid it.
Since the bill arrives in postcard form, I had to supply an envelope for mailing the check. When I went to raid my stash of random plain envelopes (thrifted for pennies in anticipation of just this sort of postal moment), the first envelopes I saw in my stationary drawer were the ones I recently made from an old calendar.
And I thought, Why not? Maybe it will make the Utilities Commission’s mail opener smile.
It did cross my mind that this was an unusual idea and might be considered odd, but when I saw that I had an envelope made from an aerial shot of my town, I took it as a sign that it was a good unusual idea.
I went all out and tucked a note in my fancy bill-paying envelope:
Saying “thank you” makes the world a better place. Truly.
