When you have a roadside mail box, it’s fair game for the young blokes heading home from the pub after a few drinks. The mailman has often had to put mail in funny spots because of the disappearance or change of shape of a box from the time he was out before!
This didn’t happen to our mailbox, though.
A mate driving a truck accidentally ran over it with his back trailer after dropping off a load of lupins! And the even funnier thing was that his two sons came to have a play one afternoon, got off the bus and said ‘Wow! Didn’t Dad do a great job of the mail box!’
If you’re going to do a job, make sure you do it well!
Hehehe. When I lived back in the States, the snow plows would take our our mail box every winter…
That’s so funny, Jaime! You would think that the drivers of the snow plough, would work out where they were, year after year, wouldn’t you!
Someone did that to our mailbox but it wasn’t an accident. They also managed to wipe out a strainer post (an old one mind you) and a ‘no through road’ sign. We replaced it with a wooden mailbox with the base filled with rocks- he won’t have much fun if he tries again!!
