    In The Post

    There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to process
    all the mail that had illegible addresses.

    One day just before Christmas, a letter landed on his desk, simply addressed
    in shaky handwriting to "God". With no other clue on the envelope, he opened
    the letter and read:

    "Dear God,
    I am an 83 year old widow living on the State pension. Yesterday someone
    stole my purse. It had 100 in it, which was all the money I had in the
    world and no pension due until after Christmas. Next week is Christmas and I
    had invited two of my friends over for Xmas dinner. Without that money, I
    have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my
    only hope.

    God, can you please help me?"

    The postal worker was really touched, and put a copy of the letter up on the
    Staff Notice board, at the main sorting office where he worked.

    The letter touched the other postmen and they all dug into their pockets and
    had a whip round.

    Between them they raised 96. Using an official franked Post Office
    envelope, they sent the cash on to the old lady, and for the rest of the
    day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of the nice thing they had
    done.

    Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter simply addressed
    to "God" landed in the Sorting Office. Many of the postmen gathered around
    while the letter was opened.

    It read,
    "Dear God,
    How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your
    generosity, I was able to provide a lovely dinner for my friends. We had a
    very nice day, and I told my friends of your wonderful gift - in fact we
    haven't gotten over it and our Vicar is beside himself with joy.

    By the way, there was 4 missing.

    I think it must have been those thieving b**tards at the Post Office."
