My wife has parked her car in front of our house for 16 years and never had a problem with mail carriers having access to our mailbox. This has come to an end with my new carrier. I've received numerous complaint letters about access to the mailbox. I measured the distance from the front of the car to the mailbox,17Ft. I think that's more than enough room to get away from my mailbox. I went to the Post Office today and complained to the supervisor there only to be told to expect more complaint letters. She crumpled up my information in front of me and through it away. I'm always polite to the carriers when I see them or when they leave a package at my door. I even thanked a mail carrier today that left a package, but I'm not going to put up with abuse from the Post Office and if I have to I'll call my Congressman and Senator and make formal complaints. God, I miss the days when letter carriers walked their beat and were like friends to us, the public. Oh, I almost forgot, I was also told that letter carriers were not permitted to put their vehicle in reverse. I'm sorry but if they can't be trusted backing the truck up a foot or so they shouldn't be allowed to drive them in the first place.
