I had a customer who kept telling me not to block her mailbox when I parked in front of her house: "They won't leave my mail!" Well, I thought she was nuts, and besides, on that street there just wasn't anywhere long enough to park my truck/trailer without blocking either a mailbox or a drive. But then I found out the mail carriers--driving route, boxes at the curb--really aren't required to get off their lazy unionized butts and take ONE STINKIN' STEP to reach a mailbox. A couple of times I watched carriers zip right by without stopping at the box I was just semi-blocking--that is, the front or back of my rig was close enough to the mailbox that they couldn't reach it from the seat of the little Grumman step vans they use. And not even a glance in my direction--avoiding eye contact? So now if I am on one of those streets without enough space to leave clear access to a mailbox, I keep an eye out for the mail truck. If I see him coming, I try to stay close, so when he comes by, I can stand there near the mailbox with the door hanging open and my hand out to take the mail and put it in the box for him. Don't want one of my old lady customers worrying about why they didn't get the interest statement for their CD's. Do you think I am going too far here?
