Nearing the crest of the hill (37). The partner of a voracious and far superior blogger (check my user profile for the link). Owner of a cat who wants to take over the world and move back to Dunstable (her home town), and owner of several goldfish that speak with cockney accents. Wanting to rant and grumble about this and that going on in the world. Wanting to post pics and vids from my mobile from time to time. I just want to be able to express an opinion on topics, if I have one, or maybe reveal a piece of "exciting" information about my life...whatever really.

Feel free to contact, leave comments, etc.

Is the mail really "Royal"?

(viewed 953 times)

You know, I'm surprised Queeny actually still allows the use of the term "Royal" to describe the UK's mail service. This letter arrived this morning from my mother-in-law. Amazingly it still had retained its contents...a cheque. Is it just me and my doubting ways that thinks that maybe some nimble fingers at "Royal" Mail decided to peruse the contents of the envelope in case there was cash in it rather than the cheque?

Seems unlikely, to me - if you were trying to nick some cash on the sly, you'd open the envelope in such a way that you couldn't tell, not tear a whole corner off. If you weren't bothered about the contents and just ripped it open, why bother sending it on after opening it? That just increases your chances of getting caught.

But then I tend to assume (a) people behave rationaly and (b) people are generally honest. I think I'm more often wrong on a than b.

... and option c which is that a large chunk of our thinking is non-conscious and non-deliberative. To do otherwise would paralyse human action.
