The postcard has a green stamp of George Washington priced at one cent. Its front displays a Halloween cartoon; its back contains a message written in cursive. It was delivered to its address last week.
However, it was postmarked October 29, 1920.
According to the New York Times, it’s not clear where the postcard has been all this time or why it took so long to reach its address. A Postal Service spokesman explained that such incidents typically occur when old letters and postcards are purchased at flea markets, antique shops, or online, then put in the mail.
Burger King’s post-pandemic restaurants
The person who mailed the postcard would hardly recognize our world today. In the midst of a year unlike any other, it’s easy for us to feel the same way:
- Burger King has unveiled its post-pandemic future: their restaurants will have a walk-up window for touchless orders and three drive-through lanes (one is for delivery drivers picking up mobile orders for customers).
- Walmart, the nation’s largest retailer, is testing drone delivery as the competition intensifies to bring products to customers’ homes.
- Engineers have developed a robot that can detect whether people are wearing a mask to guard against COVID-19. If they’re not, it can politely remind them to put one on and then thank them when they do.
- UPS is hiring one hundred thousand workers for the holiday season as it anticipates a gigantic surge in e-commerce sales due to the pandemic.
- Amazon also plans to hire one hundred thousand additional employees as online shopping escalates.
