The Mailbox Police Finally Caught Up to Us!

Click for bigger...This is the amazing mailbox that The Lady Janet constructed for us to hold all the big stacks of mail and catalogs we get almost every day. It’s been our mailbox for over 8 years now, and it’s perfect – it almost always holds it all, it matches our house perfectly, it’s very sturdy, it’s well-made, and it’s cuter than a bug’s ear, even if the bug’s crawling on a kitten who looks perplexed.

But now our new mailman has decided that despite years of flawlessly enjoyable mail delivery and receipt, it comes up short on several counts of USPS standards for what constitutes a mailbox, and we’ve received a form asking us to correct the problems. Brother.

If we don’t ignore it, or they pursue it, we need to provide a door and a flag and make it waterproof. Stay tuned…

  1. Are you serious? There’s rules to how your mailbox has to operate? It’s not hurting anyone else’s mail but YOURS if it’s defective anyway. That’s ridiculous.

    I don’t care – I’m leaving the toilet out on the porch and the mailman can continue to put it in the bowl. I thought it was ‘eccentric’. LOL
