    Anyone ever talk to a mail man that walks about paying him a little extra to put on doors on his route or would it be illegal for them to do this. Just wondering as I was doing door hangers today. Three hours of door hangers two customers signed up while passing them out.:walking:

    I know most of you already know this, but for those who don't: DON'T PUT HANGERS ON MAILBOXES; IT IS A FEDERAL CRIME. I'm not just talking about avoiding putting something IN the mailboxes; it is illegal to hang, tape, etc. anything ON a mailbox.

    My Mother works for the post-office and she indicated it's ok to tape something to the side of the larger mailboxes in neighborhoods. I could be off on this though, it was a while ago.

    Kids on roller-blades are the best, hands down!!! My little brothers did it for me years ago (when they were little brothers) and it was great. I just drive behind them and they hit entire neighborhoods real fast.
