If you're going to post something marked 'Urgent, please do not ignore' through a letterbox, maybe spend 5 seconds to make sure you have the right house?

And they weren't even close, I live at 41, the letter was addressed to number 49, which is literally the first house in the street...

I just tottered down the road in the freezing rain to put it in the right letterbox. (So of course the rain has now stopped).

*I know it was hand delivered, because a) no stamp and b) I heard them knock and them put it in the letterbox about 6PM last night, but given at that point I'd already gone to bed because of the whole sinus bug thing and was asleep not long after I wasn't about to get up to answer the door and didn't actually see it until this morning.

Wow. (at the people who mis-delivered it.)

I... would not have gone out in freezing rain with a sinus bug to redeliver it.

I probably would have waited until the next convenient time to re-deliver it, which might have been 3, 4 or 7 days hence...

Placing unstamped mail into a letter box is a Federal crime in the USA: many people attach a clip to the box so neighborhood flyers etc won't blow away.

(Of course if you have a mail slot there's nothing the USPS can do.)
