Mailbox Destroyed - For the Second Time in 3 Months!

October 10th, 2011 at 05:39 pm

Hey, everyone. It has a been a bit of a crappy day here in my house. It was the beginning of a great deal until I grabbed my purse and lunch and was ready to leave for work. When I looked out the front door, I saw that the mailbox was not on the post where it should be but on the ground. I immediately said an expletive. Not characteristic of me, but I was so frustrated since we just replaced the mailbox post barely 3 months ago. This time they bashed in the mailbox, too. My husband, who was half asleep at the time said heard me and asked what's wrong. I told him and he immediately came running to verify it. He grabbed his cell phone to call the cops. I had to leave for work, so I let him handle the cops. Tonight, we went to Home Depot to buy a better mailbox. When we talked to the folks at Home Depot, they recommended the following mailbox and also a heavy duty steel post:

    What a pain! I have a friend who's cars keeps getting egged...luckily it has been rainy around here otherwise it would really be bad.

    My dad was once so enraged about his rural mailbox being hit, he filled it with cement. There was a shattered baseball bat and broken glass next to it three days later.

    that sucks! i live on a rural road and have a p.o. box specifically so that i don't have to deal with mailbox vandalism or snowplow destruction, etc. I live alone so would have to hire someone to replace it each time, so worth it just to pay for the p.o. box.
