At work (public college), we wanted to test that our postcards were actually getting delivered to our students.
So, we asked 10 staff members to fill out the postcards with their own (home address) information to see how the post office would do:
- 6 of the 10 (60%) arrived in 2 days (including the person who lives the furthest away, 64 miles)
- 2 of the 10 (20%) arrived in 3 days (somewhat interesting in that 1 of these 2 lives within 2 miles of the college)
- 1 of the 10 (10%) took 4 days
- 1 of the 10 (10%) is still not delivered (as of yesterday, the third day).
Even though a postcard is not a package...I thought others might find this interesting as we occasionally have posts about items going astray while being delivered. Like your gas mileage, your results may vary!
