    Brown envelope laugh

    There was a brown envelope behind my door this morning.

    Well, I am expecting both a WFI and a reassessment anytime now so maybe not a surprise.

    However its from the LEAVE.EU group and it's just their propoganda letter; no doubt you will all be getting one.

    I had to laugh when I noticed their address- Catbrain Lane.
    Speaks volumes.

    I had the same letter, and the same reaction to the envelope sat on my door mat!

    Same here. Thought it was a PIP invite letter at first.

    I thought more would have picked up on the Cats- brains thing.

    Just shows how paranoid we get about a brown envelope.

    My dad for some reason Get 100% identical Brown letters from some health supplement firm. trouble is they send out like 5 a month and he's never ordered with them. Think that's why everyone is so fearful we know the Pip "invites" are coming that's on top of many being hassled over ESA over and over

    I ran out of envelopes recently and had to buy some more.

    So of course I got some manilla (brown) ones. Sauce for the goose.

    If I have ever have to send you one I will write "THIS IS NOT A BROWN ENVELOPE" in big letters on it.

    Yess, the same here on Thursday. I sent off my ESA50 at the beginning of March and thought it was something to do with it, heart beating fast, saw Bristol, which is where my letters usually come from, but no leave EU!
