    Emergency medical care is a whole 'nother rant. Next time I'd rather just die.

    someone shows up at the Post Office with a fake DL and picks up the items




    I hope you are getting better
    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    Doubtful. More likely a compromised cc system.

    They know me at the Cali PO, so if someone showed up with a fake DL claiming to be me, they'd be busted immediately. Plus, again, it was a bunch of junk - crap software, ink cartridges, like that. If they were going to commit a $2000 crime, I'd think they'd get something better.
    I hope you are getting better
    Thanks.
