$68,308,000I got a letter yesterday from the government. I opened it, expecting that it might be important. it looked official. I read it and said, "WHAT THE HECK?"
The Census has sent me a letter telling me that they’re going to send me a letter.
It was so stupid, and a waste of tax money.
Lets do the rough numbers. If I was going to send out 114.8 million letters to every household in the US, I would need 114.8 sheets of paper, 114.8 envelopes, 114.8 stamps, gosh knows how many printer ink cartridges. I will assume that I can get 230 sheets per cartridge, so 1/2 million ink cartridges.
That mailing would roughly cost me ........
Add in labor for all the people needed to prepare the letter.
Add in the cost of the machines needed to prepare the letter.
