Ever wonder what the post office does with items that can't be delivered or are returned to the sender? No? Me either! Apparently, the post office auctions off all of this loot to the public on a regular basis. It really does me no good because they only auction it off in Atlanta, GA. Sooo not fair! I mean, I'm sure this crap comes from all over the country so shouldn't we all be able to partake in the smorgasbord?
