My card to Gary Welch (execution list) was returned because my address label said: S. Benedick instead of Sylvia Benedick !!! grrrrr
Is this normal?

Now I don;t have the time to resend it, because his date is january 5th

His date is january 5th so I am pretty sure it won't make it in time, but is it normal for a mailroom to be this childish? I mean, what is the big difference between S. Benedick or Sylvia Benedick?

Not usually may be because of his status unless they're doing background checks on all senders that's CRAZIE

It is normal...and silly if you ask me. My guy is in KS and if you put your return address in any other context besides first, last, address they will deny it. So, I've made it a habit now of doing it that way on ALL my mail to everyone just in case.

I recieved a returned Christmas Card today that I sent to Rafael D. In Marin County in San Rafael Ca. Said RTS- Not allowed .. I think it was because I had a Very Small piece of Tape on back of envelope to hold it closed because the glue on envelope wouldn't stick .. I am so sorry ..

Yes, I'm afraid this is normal for mailrooms. I remember the first time I ever wrote to an inmate, I just put my initial and surname. They did give him the letter but they asked him to tell me I must write my name in full in future.

I know in the state of Washington they are very strict!!! You need to put full first name and last name and return address or they will reject them! I found this out during the last 2 swaps!
