Have you ever wanted to share your fun photos, offbeat stories, and positive postal news and experiences? Rules of the road? Keep it upbeat, be considerate, and keep it clean.
I'm not sure of the ultimate, philosophical, meaning -- if any -- of a customer decorating their mailbox, but, as a carrier, I always enjoyed it, especially when the decoration included a thoughtful treat intended for their carrier (providing the decoration did not impede access to the box).
I like to decorate my mailbox for Halloween. This year I went a bit spooky ... I had a fake gravestone at the base of the mailbox and it was only after I set it all up that I realized the gravestone's "RIP" might get taken the wrong way, so I made a point of telling my mail carrier that it wasn't a comment on the USPS! He laughed ... he takes dozens of pieces of mail from my box every day so he knows I love the USPS. I also have a big black spider that lights up purple on top of the box (it does not impede access at all). There will be a picture of the spider-topped box on my blog on Monday night :-)I haven't left a treat for the mail carrier in the past, but I think I will this year. Although, he looks like the type who never touches sugar. Very fit.
It means they can't replace their rusted mailbox in these tough economic times!!!
