That's an inconvenient thing to run out of, but my tastes are somewhat different. I would rather not run into one.

Maybe you could wrap it and attach a label to it that would deter even the nosiest from ever opening it?

The label would say, "You must open this; the government says so!"

Government orders tend not to be very popular in any country I know of, and probably some that I don't.

There may be poor people in China or India who would take anything they could get, but the more discerning ones might refuse the freebies.

I would accept any free car. Because any car is better than no car.

I can't afford neither car nor gas.

Well, I might - but I would have to give up on a lot of other stuff and I don't want to. I don't really need a car.

So - you know - priorities smiley - shrug

Mail made of air would not have given him protection against the arrows of the saracens.

And that's probably where a lot of mail ends up these days thanks to incompetence, negligence and tardiness in today's so-called postal "service" smiley - groan
