A Little Girl's Postcard To Her Grandmother Gets Delivered THREE DECADES After It Was Sent!

| Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueViral: News

Snail mail is THE WORST!

We guess there's a reason they call it snail mail!!

Little Joanne Selby had always made an effort to send her grandmother postcards whenever she traveled, so when she and her family went on vacation to Nefyn in Wales, she made sure to send a letter!

The only problem is her grandma never got the letter, and that's probably because it wasn't delivered until more than 30 years later!!!

Sadly, Joanne (who now goes by Joanne Flemming) says her grandmother passed before the letter ever got to her. However, she says she's currently living in her old house and was SHOCKED when they letter turned up on her doorstep:

"I came in from work and it had been posted through my door. It was my address, but because of the woman's name I thought it must be one of my neighbors at first. When I had a closer look I saw it had been posted in Wales dated 1984. It is in perfect condition so I have no idea where it has been. It does not look like it has been passed from pillar to post, it is immaculate. It looks almost new."

Luckily, Joanne seemed to find the whole story pretty amusing, but there was ONE thing she wasn't very happy about:

"I'm embarrassed by my spelling. Thankfully that has improved. I think my nine year old daughter could do better."

Ha! We'll let it slide this time considering you were only 10 when you wrote this letter in the first place!

It's still unclear why it took so long for the postcard to be delivered, but we're guessing Joanne is happy she can just stick with much more reliable emails these days!

    Geez and I thought the mail in Mexico was pretty bad (don't even bother with postcards).
