Worker went postal!

Hi all! Long-time reader, recent community joiner. *waves* I'm hoping spilling my frustration at this situation will help me get over it, since there is really nothing I can do about it anyway.

The set-up:

The house my mother lives at has the same number as that on a street running parallel to it (say she lives at 101 Cauliflower, there is also a 101 Broccoli). Sometimes she gets mail for 101 Broccoli. She lives at 101 Cauliflower. So she and I both thought the correct procedure was to write "please forward" on the envelope and put it in the mailbox to be delivered the next day.

Apparently not.

As a little aside.. does anyone know what IS the proper procedure for mis-delivered mail?

I feel better now.
