A tightwad was looking for a gift to give a friend. Everything was too expensive except for a glass vase that had been broken and he could purchase it for almost nothing. He asked the store to send it hoping his friend would think it had been broken in transit.

A postcard mailed from Chicago in 1958 has finally reached its intended recipient. A postcard depicting Shedd Aquarium recently arrived at Scott McMurry's Virginia home, more than five decades after his mother mailed it.
