    I read this on Wallet Pop:

    "AOL User Gerrydee1 Says:
    "As a young girl right out of school, I worked in the Customer Relations Department of Sears-Roebuck in Philadelphia. This was the mail order division. My job was to handle complaints via letter from customers and route them to the correct place for their problems to be solved. I received a note from a farmer that said his latest sale from the catalog of poultry...included some dead on arrival. My supervisor told me to write him back and asked him to send the bills from the sale indicating how many, and we would gladly replace them...A package arrived with my name on it soon. It smelled funny even before I opened it. When I did, the dope sent me the actual bills (beaks) from the poor little chickens. It smelled to high heaven and freaked me out."

    I'm guessing this happened quite some number of years ago. How long has it been since Sears-Roebuck sold poultry from their catalog? And how many years has it been since complaints were lodged and remedied through mailed letters?
