  • Doesnt bother me.

    I was taught that was a way of expressing love via the mail so I used to do it when I lived far away from home and Id write to my parents.

    So, no skin off my nose. I have other things to be irritated by.

  • Same here amaranth. When my husband and I were dating, we never lived in the same town. We were both in college. This was in the 70's, so there was no internet, no cell phone, but there was a large charge for long distance calls. We wrote letters. I always put my stamp on "ass over tea kettle" so that the first thing he saw was "I love you". I don't know if it means the same now, but all the post office cares about is that it is there. Put your's on correctly if it is important to you.

    Now that I know, I am going to use the 'language' of stamps when I write letters. :)

  • No it doesn't bother me. It means "I love you"...my SO is in jail...he puts it upside down on purpose....a small way of showing affection.
