"These guys love chocolate" — rats reportedly nibbling on packages at the Cooper Station Post Office

NY1 brings us the story about some unhappy residents at the Brevoort East on 20 E. Ninth St. who claim their packages are arriving from the U.S. Post Office full of rodent holes.

The packages are delivered to the building from Cooper Station Post Office on Fourth Avenue and 11th Street, where residents say rats are destroying their perishable packages.

"I went over to the post office and I said, ‘What’s going on here?’ And he laughed at me. He laughed!" says [resident Susan] Meyer. "And he said, ‘This is nothing! Wait until the holidays. These guys love chocolate.’"

And there's video!

Oh, sure, blame the rodents...we all know how peckish postal workers get during the holiday season.
