Here are my responses to Joyce's comments:
- Yes, I can. And I did.
- I have lots better to do; but don't we all?
- I know why because I asked him.
- I cared enough to send the very best.

What happens to mail that is sent to a company with no forwarding name or
department. EXAMPLE: lets say a brochure is sent to company. On the
envelope, just the comany and address are provided, does the person
opening the mail forward it the best they can, or do they toss it?
