Had a 25lb box on pure lead ingots delivered. And since the package juuust barely fit in the mail box, in it went. Had trouble getting it out with no way to grip it. Thank goodness it wan't my old one, it would have snapped in two.

Not he first time I couldn't get a package out because they'd wedged it in there. Had to cut a hole in one once just so I could hook my fingers in it to pull it out.

Stupid. Lazy.

I keep a hook in my truck made out of 6AWG bare copper ground wire. I can usually get it behind packages like that.

A couple weeks ago I had to cut the box into pieces to get it out of the mailbox. Surprised that mailbox didn't get damaged when the box was stuffed in. I dread when UPS hands over delivery to USPS. Things get f’d up pretty quickly.

Many years ago with one of the PO boxes I had, I went in real real early to get the mail on the way to work. There was a large envelope wedged in the box. Fought and struggled for several minutes to get in out. Almost didn't.

I opened the envelope and inside was a 45rpm record! How it didn't snap in two I have no idea. The envelope said do not bend or do not fold. I guess in their mind since it didn't have a hard crease, what they did didn't count. Roll Eyes

Well I guess I have been one of the lucky ones forever when it comes to USPS home delivery. Well that has come to an end.

I recently ordered 4 boxes of large band-aids that were laying flat in the mailer. Our new driver (chic with hat backwards) was to lazy to walk the package to the door which has always been done stomps and stuffs it in the mail box.
Something else she cannot seem to master is closing the mailbox door. When I can look down the street both ways and see several open daily. I also walk my dog on one of the long side streets and 3-4 will be wide open daily.
Just laziness IMO. Seems to be a lot more people complaining about missed delivered mail also.
We usually have nice drivers that stay around for years. They talk and wave daily, last one would always talk to Dixie my bloodhound and if she was stopped would pet her. She always had time to comment on the yard and flowers and tell me about hers. Just a really nice sweet person. Sad that they leave and we never know why.

Get one of those SMILEY post it notes and write please close my box. Put it on the mailbox door. It works. It is worth it not to have wet mail.
