You often hear about letters getting lost in the post. But it’s vey rare you hear about the letters that we manage to deliver despite the “address” that’s written on them.
Take these examples, although the names have been changed for privacy, they are all based on addresses that I have recently seen (and none had postcodes).
1. Mr Smith. Land opisit (Sic) Queens Head Pub, 800 yds up A376.
2. Mr Bloggs, House with green door, just past second lamp post after garage, Worthing Road
3. Mrs Smith, Famous Singer, Sussex.
And yes, I managed to deliver them all.
