I follow the blog Postal News for gems like this: On Chase Avenue, in the Rogers Park neighborhood in Chicago, they've only gotten two mail deliveries in the past two weeks. The reason? The carrier says there are too many snakes! Residents are frustrated because the Post Office isn’t doing anything about the problem and the mail carrier left a notice saying they had to provide an alternative mail receptacle if they wanted their mail. It made the local news even.
I find it funny, but hey, I don't even have snakes and there's a problem getting mail at my house in Chicago. That's one of the reasons why I have a P.O. Box. I do think that the route should be handled by another carrier until the breeding season for garter snakes is over. This situation has not been handled correctly. What do you think?
P.S. COMPEX is this weekend!
