Dear Plowguy,

I came 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 the situation.


Looking 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.


I 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.


Heading 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.  


How can 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.


Thank you for all the work you do taking care of the roads, but please, be more considerate of us mail box owners.


E. Twaste
