SAGINAW, MICHIGAN -- I live out of the city limits and if I need stamps I put a check made out to "postmaster". The check was for $4.40 and put it in the mailbox. I got the requested 10 stamps on the 22nd of February.
Today on the 8th. of March the check finally cleared.
It took 13 days for the silly thing to clear. Why, other than sheer lack of concern!

There's a gas station near me that only takes cash or checks. Last time I bought gas there, I wrote a check and it took them over a week to get it deposited as well. Kind of aggravating, isn't it?

Most places will only make deposits on Fridays or Mondays now. So it may take a week or more for the check to clear. I have one place that only deposits every *other* Monday >_< Drives me nuts.

Something for me to remember when I next purchase stamps by mail. Thanks, OF!
