Who? Where?

What on earth is going on with our mail just now?! First, it appears that Jane has been inadvertently ordained as we’ve started receiving mail addressed to “Rev Jane Saunders”.

Next, it would appear that whoever sent this envelope had no idea which town I live in. Or which case to use: UPPERCASE or lowercase? What the heck, let’s use BOTH!

Address label

Since when was Cellardyke in Stirling? Since when was Stirling in Edinburgh?! And although I know that Stirling does have a Falkirk postcode (FK9) it does amuse me that the list of related towns on that address label is Cellardyke, Stirling, Edinburgh, Falkirk.

And who and where was this letter addressed to?

Address label

Who is “Rev D Saunders” — clearly a misreading of “Revd Saunders” (which is wrong anyway, as everyone knows that should be “The Revd Mr Saunders”).

And where is “Sotland”?
