New Mailbox
First dog watch, 4 bells (6:04 pm)

I got to work a little late this morning because I installed a new mailbox at home. Our mail carrier destroyed our old mailbox. I think she hates me or something. I've had the same mailbox since I built the house 7 years ago. It wasn't fancy, but it did the job. The first thing to go was one of the rivets that the door hinges on (the bottom left of the mailbox). I zip-tied it closed, only to find the tie cut the next day. So I zip-tied it again. The next day it was gone. I didn't tie it tight enough to not allow the door to be opened, just enough to keep the door on straight. She cut the ties off anyway.

Lately, it's gotten worse—even the top piece that lets the door snap shut was broken. I was keeping it together with two rubber bands, but the evil mail lady wouldn't replace them. She hates getting out of her little mail car to deliver packages to me. Once though, she did get out to leave a nasty note about not leaving the trash bin near the mailbox. The irony here is that she wouldn't deliver the mail, but she'd get out of her car and walk her fat pigu up to the door to leave a nasty note.

Anyway, the new box is up and looks nice. It's bigger so she doesn't have to get out of her little car anymore.

I just hope she didn't run over the new mailbox today.
