I have to write a letter.
I practiced that in school, but I've never actually had to send one in real life.
As some might've guessed, I have some trouble with the government and apparently they don't have email or any other form of digital contact WTF | :WTF:
Perhaps they just try to make it as difficult as possible to file a complaint?

Lots of stress for me though.
First, there's the writing, which I'd have to do in an email anyway (probably just slightly less formal).
Then there's the printing.
I have to provide some "evidence" so it's more printing and some copying (instead of just scanning).
Luckily, I just bought ink and paper for my printer/scanner because I needed to print some piano sheet music.
Then I actually have to leave the house and go to the post office which is open on Saturday morning (today it closed before I was even out of bed) or in the afternoon on weekdays.
Buy a stamp and envelope, write some address on it and then wait.
Probably until I get a piece of paper back telling me they've received my complaint and are processing it.
Then wait some more until I get another piece of paper telling me my complaint was justified or not.

If I want history I'll go to a museum Dead | X|
They worry about the elderly not being able to fill out online forms, but what about the younger generation who don't know how to write a letter?
On a more serious note, I'm only 31 and I've never sent a letter before (I wonder if they still practice writing them in school?).
I have some younger cousins who have never seen a floppy before.
Technology sure has come far, fast!
