Me: The letter is supposed to end up here in Omaha.
USPS Customer Service rep: You all are in Omaha? It says it might be heading for Bellevue.
Me: That’s sort of a suburb of Omaha. Is there a sorting facility there or something?
USPS CSR: Wait–where is Omaha? It says here “NE.”
Me: That is Nebraska. “NE” is Nebraska.
USPS CSR: Oh! I thought it was for “New England.” I thought Nebraska was “NEB.”
Me: Ah! It’s all starting to make sense.
