We used to have two within six blocks of our house and both are gone. Vanished in the night. I saw our mailman yesterday and asked where the box went and he did a double take at the empty spot where the box used to be. (Seriously, he did a double take) and said “Yeah, I guess it’s gone.” (Thanks.) He then said, “I’ll collect your mail from now on.”
Well that’s a problem for me as I stopped putting my mail on outside our door about ten years ago when it was stolen, checks were washed and I *almost* had $4000 taken. Luckily for me I caught it within a day and the bank made it right.
I’m not quite ranting as there is a post office nearby, but it’s kinda sad. Are you mailboxes disappearing? How do you feel about that?
(Clarification after I hit “post” — the post office took them away, they were not stolen.)
