Be The Best Mailbox You Can Be!!

Having worked for the US Postal Service for more than a few years, I know the value of a properly installed and properly maintained mailbox.

So why did so many of my customers have mailboxes that literally embarrassed me?  I'm sure some just didn't care and I am equally sure some didn't want to bother taking the time (or spending the money) to keep theirs in passable shape.  But have a letter arrive a day or two later than they expected and ... whoa!!

So, in honor of all the hardworking letter carriers who've watched entire mailbox posts drop to the ground with no more effort than the flip of the door... who've cut their hands on rusty mailbox doors... who battled the neighborhood dogs while wrestling with 50lb mailbags...

If you have any comments, suggestions or even articles that might be useful here, please send a comment to me.
