They were afraid?

Does that annoy you? That one and "please find enclosed", like you're going to have to go on some sort of quest to locate what's been placed in with the letter, bug me.

Not so bad, really. I've been in their shoes, so I have empathy for trying to let a writer down easy, especially when you do the same thing time and time and time and time again.

Recommendation for something to say besides "please find enclosed"? It's what I've been taught, so I really haven't thought much past that. "If you don't find it enclosed, well, fuck me. Either you're staggering drunk, or, you know, I may have forgotten it. Or the chipmunks got to it--did I mention the chipmunks?" :)
