wow that sucks, hope you don't miss any important deadlines. You should definitely sit down and explain to your mom that if it doesn't say her name it's not for her

Plant a fake letter to yourself with baking soda in it so she will think she got anthrax or something. That will teach her!

I really hope you didn't take me seriously... Everyone is so serious now. Here's something fun to do! Run into a fire and scream "MOVIE!". No, I didn't mix them up.

Lolerskaterz - you clearly don't have any experience with this, so I'll help clarify it for you: not only is it mail, it's a recommendation- schools will NOT take an opened recommendation letter, they are automatically disqualified. Also, I've had busy profs like the OP, and I can imagine how humiliating it would be to ask for another letter- some profs are really jerks about that type of thing, and I can think of a couple in my time that would have refused to write another letter, and I'm sure

Yeah, I must be missing something because it seems like an obvious solution. One could even print the prof's address as the return and post it again for authenticity.

The schools typically ask for the professor to sign over the seal, to make sure they haven't been opened. Unless he can forge the professor's signature, he's SOL.

Does SOL mean shit outta luck? Yea, places usually require the seal not to be broken, maybe op can see the professor in person and explain the situation. It's worth a shot.

Ah, thank you, #15. I did not know that. Well, even if he's inredibly busy, he has time to sign his name. Don't read it, seal it in a new envelope and ask him to sign it. It's not like he has to re-write it. I doubt this is the first time it has ever happened.

Haha!! 26 wins. I'd honestly like to hear a practical situation where "Satellite of Love" is used without making someone laugh from cornyness :D

#28, that seems like a good solution, but it looks bad to go back to a professor and ask for them to RE SIGN a document that was supposed to be confidential. Technically, they'd be lying. =/ Also, what if they went to college far away from where they live? I go to school in Georgia and I'm from Virginia. If you aren't in school, you can't necessarily waltz in during office hours and quickly have them re-signed. This is a total FML.

I think you need to explain to your mum that if her name isn't on it, it's not for her and to not open. If she really wants to know what's in there, she can ask you. Hopefully you'll be able to get it sorted, I'm not sure how you'd go about doing that, I guess new envelopes or maybe asking for time to get new copies or something...

you always do a wonderful job of taking all of the previously posted comments and condensing them into one long drawn out dr. Philish comment...

Well, I'm not sure how to take that in the first place. But also, I just say of what I think, chances are that there'll always be bits that other people have said/will say.

That is a federal offence to open someone else's mail. Call the cops on her. That will stop her being so nosey in the future. ;-)
