out to my mail box this morning to find it once again smashed and my
mail spread around the ground. The second time this season! With
such a small amount of snow, I didn’t expect to see anything other
than salt and sand trucks on the roads. I realize that I am granted
the convenience of placing my US Postal Service mail box within the
boundaries of the roads right of way, and that, even though
officially they are USPS property, I’m the guy who has to rectify
across the road I looked right to see my neighbor’s box lying on the
ground. Then I looked left and noted that that box was still
standing. That one got bladed last season.
banged my good old steel box back into somewhat working order and
back onto the post. My neighbor wouldn’t have it so easy, his post
was snapped right off.
off to work I noted more smashed, trashed or broken off mail boxes
along my road. On the way home there were more on an adjoining
road to mine.
there be so much damage happening? Please learn to gauge the
extent of your plow blades. Practice out in the woods away
from mail boxes, if you need to. Trees will heal themselves.
you for all the work you do taking care of the roads, but please, be
more considerate of us mail box owners.
