I received some card saying I had a certified letter, but I never picked it up. I think I'll just let it sit and never sign for it, but what will happen to that letter?

Hi Rickson,

I believe after 2 attempts to deliver and a few days at the post office without the recipient picking it up, it will be returned to the sender. That is what I remember seeing on the little note that the mailman left for me at one time.

Thanks,
eagle

The PO will hold it for two weeks, then send a card to the originator that says THEY have a certified letter. When the originator shows up to pick up the letter (and signs for it), the originator is handed his own letter back.

(Yep - been through this very recently.)

Why not just pick it up??

It's called magical thinking...."if I don't sign for the letter, the problem it represents will simply disappear."

Rickson, I went down to the Post Office and picked that registered letter up for you (btw, you owe me, buddy). The letter advised that your subscription to (psst...."that" magazine) was about to expire and that it was time to renew your subscription; you have until April 1st. And don't worry: you don't have to thank me--you're very welcome. :-)

Not always magical thinking. Some consider it a legitimate delay tactic:grin:

I have a girlfriend, thank you!
