Now that the holiday season is over, I would like to say a few words regarding our postal services. Some of us received our mail late in the day and into the evening and I submit one of the reasons why: Finding addresses is difficult enough in our community in daylight hours. Can you imagine the problem at night?
Some of the mailboxes are in extremely poor condition and at every angle and height. I checked with the post office and the boxes should be from 41 to 44 inches from street level to the bottom of the box, and the minimum height for the lettering should be 1 inch.
I know that some question why send a letter when they can email and deliver a message instantly. I propose this question to such individuals: Would you like to receive a handwritten note from an old friend, a birthday card, Mother’s or Father’s Day card or a lovely sympathy card, or would you prefer a cold email message?
It would take very little effort or cost in most cases to bring these boxes into good condition, and that applies to rental properties also. Let’s make an effort to make them all look good. Let’s give the postal delivery person a break.
