An elderly man asks for help in the post office and finds a young man who is willing to lend a hand. Everything goes as planned until the old man apologizes in his letter. Read on about the hilarious situation and share it with your friends.


One day at a busy post office, an old man stood quietly in the corner looking around. After a couple of minutes, a young man passes by, and the old man follows him to the nearest table.

"Excuse me," said the old man. "Can you help me address this letter? My arthritis is acting up today, and I can barely hold a pen."

The young man was more than happy to help and said, "Sure thing!" The young man then wrote the address on the letter, pasted the stamp, and even got the glue ready for the envelope.

After the whole process, the young man looked at the elderly gentleman and asked, "Is there anything else I can do for you?"

The old man looked at him and said, please write, "P.S. sorry for the sloppy handwriting."

One day, a father was walking around his house when he saw the door to his son's room ajar. He pushed the door open and was surprised to see how clean the place was.

The bed made, the mess cleaned up, the books arranged, the place was fit to be called an actual study. Then, his eyes fell upon an envelope on the window.

The neatly kept enveloped had the words, "To, Dad." written on it. The man's hands began to tremble as he opened the envelope.


"Dear Dad, I write to you with a heavy heart, but it's for the best." the letter read. "I had to elope with my new girlfriend under dire circumstances and did it in a hurry to avoid drama with you and mom."

"I'm very passionate about Stacy, and we love each other. I know she's not the ideal person for me in your eyes with her being so much older than me and with dyed hair, tattoos, and motorcycle gang membership."

"But I assure you, we will live our lives happily in each other's arms. We have plans to have many kids, and I will come to visit with your grandchildren in due time."


Even though I'm only 15, I'll prove that I can take care of myself. We've moved to my wife's mobile home in the woods. Don't worry about me."

"P.S, everything I said till now is false. I just wanted to let you know that there are worse things in life than the report card on the kitchen counter. I'm at Jason's house across the street. Call when it is safe to come home. Love, Andy."
