Mail Box WTF!


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
So I saw my new mail carrier around my complex this week. She is tall, cute even with a mask on. And she has long blonde hair. I checked my mail box yesterday and decided the blonde hair must be real. I managed to cut open the one package and remove the contents. But it is wedged in so tight by the second package I can't get either one out!

Re: Mail Box WTF!

looks like you gotta cut the empty box up with a small knife to get it out!

Re: Mail Box WTF!

Yeah they did the same thing to me . they put a box in that was exactly the same size as the box , the door on mine is smaller then the box so no way it was possible to take it out . I just cut the box open and removed the content . left the box for them to deal with . LOL cheers

Re: Mail Box WTF!

Ya they forget when they open the back panel on the mailbox they have complete access from there end but forget your door is smaller.

I guess that's why it's known as the Stupper Box!

Re: Mail Box WTF!

You did say blonde hair ? That's not nice ! As Scaleguy says, the box is larger than the mail door which they never get to use.

Re: Mail Box WTF!

I must have the same postman (can I even say that today?)...
Frustrating but still better than getting the slip telling me to go to the local post office to pickup.

Re: Mail Box WTF!

I can walk across the street to the “local” post office. If I’d gotten the slip I could have spent the weekend reading my new book, I’ve waited a month to get.

Re: Mail Box WTF!

Well there was a huge BANG! on my door this afternoon. I thought the door was going to come off it’s hinges. By the time I got there the postal vans rear lights were disappearing in the dust and my package was at my door. My mail compartment must be bigger than it looks. Diagonally the front of my box is just over 7”. The book is 8 1/2” wide. You would think they would know something wouldn’t fit.
