pop quiz

the post office does, or does not, pick up mail from your home mailbox, so that it can be sent to various locations?

normally, i would say the answer is yes. but for whatever reason, my local post office seems to think the answer is What? why should i bother taking your mail? here, i'll even deliver new mail AND LEAVE YOUR FILTHY PARCEL WITH YOUR ADDRESS LISTED AS THE RETURN ADDRESS AND WITH CLEARLY UNCANCELLED POSTAGE IN YOUR MAILBOX AND PRETEND I DIDN'T EVEN SEE IT. what do you think this is, my JOB?

what kind of mailbox do you have? a multi-apartment type one? see i leave all my letters shoved into the top corner of my apartment box. (btw, there are only 4 apartments/boxes.)

i live in a triplex sort of deal. we each have our own crappy little mailbox attached to the building outside our respective doors. i leave envelopes peeking out of the top, with the stamp showing.

never used to be a problem for me, since i would throw it into our regular mailbox at work. not so with the new job... we've got the whole f-ed up campus mail system going on. sigh.
