    I find about half of the labels on the return Netflix envelopes are applied
    crookedly. Almost at a 30 degree angle. Does this slow down the speed that
    the post office returns them?

    Post of the Year.

    Yes, the Postmaster is an anal rententive SOB and if he even THINKS the
    label is slightly crooked he will toss it into the "deliver late" bin. :)

    Hard to tell but it's true the post office will slow the package with
    sloppy address label. Machine reads most of the mail and those it
    can't read, it ends up in a bin that gets checked maybe once a week.

    Why the smiley? It's true. The guy thinks machines read handwritten
    mail? I've seen the inside of a sorting facility - it's done by humans
    and all they have to read is the zip code to route the mail. Sloppy
    labels my ass.

    You were in one sorting facility so that makes you a USPS expert?
