"Please Mr. postman... "
Yes, I know it's a difficult job. Carriers work long days (our mail occasionally isn't delivered until after 6 p.m.) driving sometimes dodgy roads in unpleasant weather. But it's so very frustrating when they seem to give up.
One Friday I was expecting a package that required my signature, and the tracking number said "Out For Delivery," so I did some chores near a window to monitor street traffic. I saw the postman arrive, linger momentarily at the mailbox, then continue down the street. When I walked out to the street I found in the mailbox the dreaded note: "SORRY WE MISSED YOU..."
There was no way I wanted to wait until Monday and then have to drive to the post office, and I knew that she would be coming back on the other side of the street, so I went across and waited for her return.
She smiled and said "Oh, my goodness. How lucky for you that you got home when you did..."
Now I leave notes on the mailbox.
