USPS-I wrote wrong address

I sent out a package and accidentally tonight realized I put the wrong address. It was to my life coach client who wanted these energy sticks/powder I drink. Unfortunately I forgot to put ďwest.Ē

Tried to do delivery interception via USPS but it wouldnít work. Said address is invalid.

Anyone experience something like this? Iím so mad because now I have to pay $20 of my own money potentially to get more powders to mail to her. Ugh! Canít do anything until Monday either.

If the address is invalid, I would think it would be returned to you as undeliverable. I accidentally sent a card to my cousin at address she moved from two years ago and it came back to me.

I hope so but I donít remember UPS asking for my address (where I mailed it from). Thatís the issue.

If the name and zip code are correct it will probably be ok.

And Iím surprised you didnít put your return address. Not required, but always a good thing to do.

Good luck!🍀

Whether asked or not you should ALWAYS put your return address!

Mailmen typically know the area so you might get lucky and it will be delivered, but if there's and East and West they may not receive it.

$20 lesson!

Always use a return address!

The road where I live was separated by a new road about 20 years ago, and my road is now West. Itís a PITA for delivery people because they always want to look on the wrong road.

Fortunately itís a small town, so the people with local routes know the roads.

Lesson learned.
