Case in point: If you remember, I spent a February weekend in LA at a drug company meeting, and they asked me to bill them for my expenses. So I sent them my receipt ($32) for airport parking.
I got my $32 check today. It was sent by FedEx priority overnight delivery from Philadelphia.
The cost of sending me the check was $10.55.
For the record, I didn't ask for emergency delivery. I would have been happy with a 42 cent stamp.
