We all know the mail carrier has to read post cards, so let's give them something to read! Write a post card to your partner that has something absolutely ridiculous on the back. Make the postal carrier do a double take and go home that night wondering what the heck that was about!

So it has to be sent naked ( no envie ) so they can read it and senders choice of card.

Have fun!

I saw my mail carrier last week and he said, "You're the one who gets all the crazy mail." I said, "Yes, that is me:)" So this is going to be fun. Thanks for hosting @mishap

This sounds like a great swap. How about making it international next time !!! I'm in Australia. We have nosey mailmen too !

heavenboundlj 04/16/2016 #

What a fun swap!!! LOL

SilverD 04/16/2016 #

Do you mind if I host this international? One time one of the carriers in a PO I worked at read the postcard and it accused the person of having an affair! We all got a kick out of that!

I sent mine, and instagramed it under the #mailmansaysWHAT tag, lol

I tried to search the hashtag and it showed that 3 people had used it but I think you must have private profiles because I couldn't see the pictures.

BeckyG56 04/21/2016 #

Me too, I hashtagged with the above,saw 3 post,but couldn't see it. I hashtagged mine,but not sure if you'll be able to see it,either Mine is sent.

GrandmaLinda 04/22/2016 #

Mine is sent, made me blush. I told my daughter and grand daughter what I wrote - and lol - they were embarrassed too. Enjoyed it though.

craftymommaliz 04/23/2016 #

Crap, I forgot to take a picture of mine and post it before I sent.

Wingy 04/23/2016 #

Ok going to post my pic then mail it tomorow

MrsVonOtto 04/25/2016 #

I don't have an instagram, and don't really want one but I hope my partner likes my story and so does her postal carrier!

DeadlyHausfrau 04/25/2016 #

I sent mine and now I'm worried it was too weird. I'm sorry if you get mine! It's not obscene or anything but MAN is it weird.

GrandmaLinda 04/26/2016 #

We were to take a photo and post?

winterborn 05/15/2016 #

This was a fun one! My recipient's mail carrier actually asked her if my card was a joke or if everything was ok, lol! I hope this swap is done again :)
