Difficult Questions

I'm wondering if the MAA really wants to know why I let my membership lapse. This morning I found something from them in my mailbox. One of those forms with the opportunity to check off boxes, but the box for “other” had a line which was about 2 inches long to list your reason. While “your administrative incompetence” might fit on the line if I wrote small, it really wouldn't convey anything helpful, so I scrawled my tale across all the white space on the form. And then I found that the form does not fit in the envelope they provided.
