I just wrote a check for a year’s subscription for my wife’s Food & Wine magazine. The invoice portion that you send back says that I owe $19.95 for 12 issues. That’s the only option. And yet, right next to the “$19.95”, there’s also a place for me to fill in how much I’m sending them. Hmm. What would happen if I sent them $10? $30? I guess chalk it up to another long obsolete — or never useful — thing in the world.
I love finding this little weirdisms in life.
