Broken: USPS change of address notification

Usps Paul Schreiber submits a picture from Esthr's Flickr photostream:

Please notify the United States Postal Service to notify the United States Postal Service that the recipient has a new address.



Odd that the USPS must identify themselves to us, twice.

Unnecessary redundancy = broken.

Wow, I did not know that the USPS was part of the Department of Redundancy Department.

If you've done a change-of-address with the USPS, and before that gets fully processed, the USPS sends out a piece of mail in the mean time, what is *supposed* to happen if not this?

I always thought that new address thing was something you did from your local post office your mail filters through.

If that is the case, then having a letter come from the USPS in Omaha, NE. that was then forwarded to you by this method makes sense to me.

Since forwarding is handled by the local post office it is only logical for them to ask you to notify the other postal facility. It says notify sender. I see no problem at all since the post office does not notify senders even another branch of themselves.
