Many of you have heard me whine about how ITS assigned me the e-mail address “nward2” at school, even though “nward1” had graduated and the e-mail was no longer used. I know at least a few of my friends and family sent mail to that non-existent address over my four years at Swat.
However, I need to label my mailbox. The USPS strongly encourages it, and the MA RMV says that the mailman probably wouldn’t deliver my state ID if the mailbox wasn’t labeled.
Since I live in Apartment 2 (really, just the second floor), and since I’m cheap (those letters are 20¢ a piece!), NWARD2 will be emblazoning the rusty mailbox outside my rarely-used front door.
I know that the mailman can’t appreciate my witty choice of labels, but I think it’s a funny idea.
