TWINSBURG, Ohio. – An Ohio man was recently inundated with about 55,000 copies of the same letter from a student loan company.

College Avenue Student Loans has claimed responsibility for the mistake, blaming a computer glitch.
Dan Cain of Twinsburg told WOIO that he knew there was a problem as soon as the clerk at his post office told him that he had too much mail to walk through the front door with.So, Cain drove around to the back and that’s when he saw postal workers wheel out two massive carts filled with trays of mail.“At first we're shocked,” Cain told WOIO. “We were like, ‘are you kidding me? Who makes that kind of mistake?’”
Cain counted 79 trays of letters with about 700 letters in each tray. That’s 55,000 letters, give or take – all of them exactly the same.
In a statement obtained by WOIO, the college loan company said the mistake with the letter regarding Cain’s daughter’s student loan was due to a glitch in their system and representatives apologized.

Now, Cain is floating around ideas for how to get rid of the pile of letters.
"I may just start a fire a bonfire and burn it all," said Cain.

if that happened during count, you'd probably go overburdened, get your route cut, and end up losing thousands, for the rest of your career....

be careful what you wish for.
Implies that the rest of the career is gonna be on that route. Somebody gonna be getting a super low paying h route next bid

If they paid first class on all those, that's a ~ $27,000+ mistake. Clowns. :D
Small change to them. That's the interest they earn on a 1/2 dozen loans out there based on tuition costs these days.

I just wonder if he is currently working in a field for the degree he earned and is paying for?

Must have been mighty slim letters for a 700 count per tray.

Technically they were all to his daughter, all identical, and all were wrong based on the amount due on them.

not everyone is in an office that has opportunities, to bid away from a route quickly, if even ever. just as some rca's wait decades for a route, some regulars, are stuck, as well.
