I’ve been wanting to blog about this for months. This letter has been lying on my desk for a long time and every time I look at it I am amazed.
This is an invitation from a Chinese (or events/expo company, who apparently got my name from some online directory. It was sent on the 26th of June, 2007, and arrived in my mailbox on the 17th of July. Another stamp says it arrived in Jordan on the 2 of July. Between arriving in Jordan and arriving in my mailbox, there was quite a delay.
But look at the address.
First of all: no name of recipient (just CEO)
Then: SYNTAX LEBANON (We have no office in Lebanon! Our official Arabic company name is not SYNTAX and the post box is actually in my name)
Then: Sweileh (Actually our mailbox is in Jubeiha)
Notice: no P.O.Box and no Postal Code.
Still, it arrived! The handwriting on the envelope, that of a post worker, states our correct P.O.Box and Area Code.
Obviously, I did not go to the conference advertised in that letter! I am in Amman
But here is a thank you for the diligent unknown postal worker who somehow was able to find out who the letter was for.
