USPS rocks!

I just received a letter addressed: Michael Galassi next to Steve <my neighbor's last name> Birkenfeld, OR 97016 The town is wrong, Mist, not Birkenfeld, but hey, neither town is large enough to host a post office so we both piggy-back on Clatskanie's ZIP code. The sender didn't know my address, but I'd mentioned living near Steve's place some time back so this just seemed like the natural way to address a letter. USPS just makes it happen, no matter how vague our notion of what we're doing is. Think about it, this is a branch of the US GOVERNMENT. Do I need to repeat that? Yet they take what they do seriously enough to work around any and all little impediments we put in their way.
