You know you have great calligraphers around you (the other part of the world counts too!!) when your postman tells you he has a package for you, and then goes to your house to apologize because it was not really for you, but "it was written so pretty" that he just assumed without further reading who the recipient was.

Someon contacts you to "fix" an envelope that another calligrapher messed up.
