I knew it would be returned though. My guy told me months ago about a trick he had tried that actually worked. He said if I wrote FRANK on the envelope where the stamp goes instead of putting postage on it, it would be delivered. He asked me to do this so he could prove to the other guys that it would work. BIG SURPRISE that it got returned, huh? He's such a dork!

Why would that work? Does FRANK stand for something?

I have no idea, he never explained it to me. I only did it yesterday because he asked me again to do it. I'll put a stamp on it and send it back tomorrow.

That too funny! I'd love to know why he thought Frank would work.

He said it had in the past. He had a letter sent to him when he was at another facility with FRANK on it, but he said he threw it away.

Franked mail is for government and nonprofit mail. It won't work for regular people.

LOL... your man is funny...
Like poni'swoman said, its for government and nonprofit mail. A
"franked envelope" usually has a signature of a government official or a seal of some sort. Letters and forms for official business are normally sent in franked envelopes.

LOL well after a little invesgating I found the letter....my husband had sent it to me.....but it had stamps on it so the only thing I can think of is he tried it to test it but then it was sent back to him so he could put stamps on it for frank.....LOL

That's so cute though... he wanted you to try it and you did. I love the dedication. :) I can't say I wouldn't have tried it either and in the dictionary, my pic is probably UNDER Goldenglove.... LOL

Also, I never knew about FRANK either so now I learned something today too - and I used to be a mail clerk in the Army... what do ya know...
