Me and you oughta come up with a bucket list in case we win tiggs. Now I don't usually fraternize with yankees but Kentucky is borderline and I know some upstandin' hillbillies from up there so whataya think? As old as you are, what's the difference if you start slammin' Jack now?

ridge runner if'en you bucket list with tiggs your buck'et listing with a Yankee born just outside of Detroit..That matter?..Haven't had a drink of booze since 1975 and that's why I'm still alive..

      I think mail carriers should have to share with everybody. Everybody knows they're loaded anyway. Especially the retired ones with those big fat government pensions.

      Let's share the wealth!

      HAHAHA! I pay in to Social Security! LOL let's see if it's still around when it's my turn to collect.

      As for sharing the wealth.........I'll be happy to!!!!  As soon as you hand over the money hehehe!!!!!!!!

          LOL you know that saying about learning alot about a person from the trash they throw away......the things we learn about people from the mail they receive.

            I worked a lot of senior routes in Florida and in thier eyes the mailman was a God..SS checks once a month was very important to them..

                  Didn't one lottery winner state he received 5000 pcs. of mail a day or week or something? If you don't have some sort of strategy to handle these types of people, they will take everything you have...

                        I appreciate all you guys do.

                        What I would really appreciate though, is if you would put my mail in my box and the neighbor down the road's mail in his box instead of vice-versa.

                        That would almost be like winning the lottery because it seems like the odds are against it happening very often.

                        Try to match those little numbers on the envelopes with the big numbers on the side of the mailbox.

                          That means we would have to learn how to read and that would be no fun..Just be happy you get mail,even if it's not your own..Play the numbers of the missguided mail..The PO managment don't care who's mail you get all they care about is how fast you can carry..Just think ridge runner if you would have been a postal carrier of all the wimins you would have aahem met..:)..Kinda clean that up..:)...

                            LOL! You're right. I used to work for the postal service. When we processed, they cared about how fast it got outta there, more than WHERE it went! I know half the people I worked with couldn't read. LOL  Boy, if I still worked there, I would be swamped with numbers to play.

                              I believe that. What people put on envelopes is crazy.

                              One time I saw a little kids' handwriting, and it was addressed to "grandpa", and just a city and state. It was so sad to have to reject it, but there was nowhere for it to go. Disapprove
