Home of the New England Chevaliers!

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.
