Why they call it snail mail

Being a good citizen, I finished my Virginia state taxes and sent the check last week.
I checked this week and it hadn't been cashed.
With the May 1 deadline looming, I decided to call the county.
They processed the check yesterday.
I sent it on the 20th.
It was received on the 28th.
Eight days to go eight miles.

It's a known fact that the farther mail has to go the faster it gets there. Local mail takes eight days. Coast to coast in three days. Intergalactic mail next day.
