May 10, 2008 – Jorge’s Junk Mail
I heard another funny story about Lenny today. Turns out that Lenny receives mail for Jorge. Jorge lives in Tijuana (big surprise), when he isn’t living in the taxi that is. I’m guessing to work for the taxi company he has to have a United States address listed as his place of residence. You might think that speaking English and showering were requirements as well. Not so.
Lenny collects Jorge’s mail for him – and sells it to him, for a dollar per item. What a nice guy that Lenny is. Real sweetheart. Even the junk mail, although I doubt that Jorge get’s too many credit card offers. I bet the supermarket circulars don’t waste their time with him. He must not know about P.O. boxes. Jorge doesn’t strike me as someone who get’s many important letters. I doubt many people probably know he’s even alive. I didn’t know myself till I saw him moving in the taxi.
What can you get for a dollar nowadays anyways? I'm fully aware of the rudimentary nature of my drawings and I don't care, I think they're cute. Catherine, probably not so much...
