Question Returned Mail

I am sitting here laughing and scratching my head in wonder. I send my LO letters everyday, always the same envelopes and stamps. I had one returned today unopened with the "big red stamp" all over it, Reason Checked: Material unacceptable. I did nothing different with this letter/envelope then any of the others.

I am curious has anyone else ever had this happen?

Yes, but they should give you a more specific reason than that.

I think I'd call the mail room and ask them.
One would have thought it would at least have been opened. Strange.

I think I'd call and ask, or you could try to resend.....??

I've had a few things returned but they were always open and had a reason enclosed.

I did call the mail room and the lady said you could not think of any reason it would have been returned and not clearly marked why it was being returned. She asked if I had looked inside. I explained the letter was never opened but I looked inside while on the phone. She told me to put it in a new envelope and resend. So I did hopefully it makes it through this time.

That's crazy if it did not have a reason. Our daughter has had mail returned due to art materials used. Now if she makes him a card at school using anything other than crayons I just take a picture of it and print it out and send that to him.
