Those people at the Post Office

A nice young worker from Australia Post was sorting through her regular envelopes, when she discovered a letter addressed as follows:

— GOD c/o Heaven —

Upon opening the envelope, a letter enclosed told of how a little old lady who had never asked for anything in her life, was desperately in need of $100 and was wondering if God could send her the money.

Well, the young lady was deeply touched and made a collection from her fellow workmates and collected $90 and sent it off to the old lady.

A few weeks later another letter arrived addressed to God, so the young lady opened it and it read:

— Thank you for the money, God, I deeply appreciate it, however, I only received $90. It must have been those people at the Post Office.
