The letter to God

Posted on 20. Mar, 2007 by in Jokes

There was a man who worked for the Post Office whose job it was to process all the mail that had illegible addresses.One day, a letter came addressed in a shaky handwriting to God with no actual address. He thought he should open it to see what it was about. The letter read:

Dear God,
I am an 83 year old widow, living on a very small pension. Yesterday someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money i had until my next pension check. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I had invited two of my friends over for dinner. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. I have no family to turn to, and you are my only hope. Can you please help me?

Sincerely, Edna

The postal worker was touched. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her wallet and came up with a few dollars. By the time he made the rounds, he had collected $96, which they put into an envelope and sent to the woman.

The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of Edna and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends.

Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter came from the same old lady to God. All the workers gathered around while the letter was opened. It read:

Dear God,
How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me? Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day and I told my friends of your wonderful gift. By the way, there was $4 missing. I think it must have been those bastards at the Post Office.

    bboR, you’re an ass. if you didn’t like it, why would you bother scrolling down and posting? no one wants to read about how some random person thought it wasn’t funny because they saw it in school. it’s not your job to police the internet, so why don’t you stop being “ghey” and post on articles that you DO like.

    I agree with bboR.

    Also, what business does a postman have opening other peoples mail? I hope he’d be fired pretty quickly.

    It is actually taken from an old spanish tale. I read this in my senior Spanish class, except with several key differences. Kind of humorous.

    If I sent a letter to God with no address I wouldn’t be surprised if it ended up opened.

    Pretty funny, I liked the little story, if it was or was not taken from something/someone else.

    Opening another person’s mail is a federal crime.

    If it’s not his job to police the internet, nor is it your’s to bitch about people’s opinions, stop being such a hypocrite.

    Otherwise the story was cute

    You all sound like 12 year olds. Get off the internet and go play Pokemon.

    Txg that was dumb. Penis face was right. Ok. All the dumb people here that post dumb things get off the chair that your sitting in and go do something worth while, other then post stupid comments on the internet. You know what people, I am 12 years old and I am ABOVE all you people who posted stupid comments. That’s sad for you. Ok so really leave the seat that your in and do something worth while.

    By the way, the story was great! The end was a funny! :)

    depends on your religion if your a federal crime or not…if you believe you’re God then…it’s your mail eh. it might hold up in court.

    Can I just point out that your saying in your header makes absolutely no sense. It’s a nice looking logo but, WTF is “Blogging about anything that worth the talk” supposed to mean?

    Oh yeah… and the goofy story sounds contrived.

    You all come off as sooooo tough since your angry words are in a cute pink box with stars on it. Gimme a break.

    It’s a funny story, I enjoyed it.

    very funny — absolutely a great site this is – whether its all true or not – still makes for some interesting reading – takes the mind of the pressures that ones faces daily – the state the world is in , the daily reports of horrendous crime and the list goes on and on and on and on.

    Keep up all the good work – you all doing excellent, outstanding work.

    Kudos to all responsible for keeping this site maintained.
