The Postman's credo..
"Neither snow nor rain nor gloom of night shall stay these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,"
What ever happened to that credo?
I don't know about you but postal delivery isn't the same as it was 20 years ago, it's much worst now a days.
In the past 5 years, I've had so many problems getting my mail, not getting others mail, getting my mail to where it's going on time, mail getting lost/stolen, it's jsut ridiculous.
A few years ago I had Netflix and I would get 3 movies every week because I would get them, watch them and send them right back out. Kept things going every week. Then my movies started going missing, delivered without discs, the paper would be torn to shreds or they would just never show up at all.
Now if you 'google' missing netflix discs, you will see I'm not the only one with these types of peoblems. People are having their discs stolen and I think it was the postmen who were doing the stealing. There were jsut too many of the discs going missing. I have 8 movies go missing in 3 years. That's ridiculous. I called the psotoffice to complain and she told me it's not the post offices fault, it';s netflix's fault because their envelopes get torn all the time.
Anyway, I started watching my postman deliver the mail to my apartment complex and how he was doing it. He knew I was watching him and he didn't like it one bit. I think he decided to mess with my mail because of this. I started calling and complaining everytime he messed my mail delivery up, which was every week. My mail would either never show up, or it would end up in someone else's mailbox. When I called they actually told me, "Just take the mail you get that's not yours to the apartment it belongs to." What's the problem?
Then the mailman I was complaining about was ransferred, fired, quit...whatever happened to him, he was gone. I thought my mail would be fine after that. I was wrong. I'm still having the same problems. Of course I don't have netflix anymore because all the missing discs got to be too much for me to handle.
But just yeasterday I got my neighbors mail in my mialbox. She's been calling and complaining too.
I mena what happens if my mail or other's mail gets put in the wrong box and they decide they want to keep it? What if it's something important?

I don't know about the rest of you but I love it when we have rainy days. The overcast skies, the cool winds and the howling winds. What I don't like is the heat of the summertime, with it's 115F temps and not a cloud in the sky. I would rather sleep all day and stay up all night.
