A letter for the 'mail delivery person'

Over on East Fourth Street, there seems to be an issue with leaving mail for a building. There may be a new key for the building, one which the mail carrier doesn't seem to have now. But residents insist that the same key will work!

This sign sent along by Jeremy sums it up...


However, if you read the fine print, the "mail person" disagrees, writing that "you will get your mail when I get a key." And just to show that the mail person isn't nuts, he or she has a witness! "The guy in the restaurant saw me try the key. It doesn't work." But, but... just turn the key upside down!

In any event, building residents haven't received any mail this week... Can another urban etiquette note be far behind?

So the idiot landlord/locksmith/super (whoever) installed a new lock cylinder upside down. Just take it apart and turn the cylinder around the right way... duh. These people are as stupid as their mailperson.

I bet this is the same mail delivery guy I have on 5th St. He refuses to deliver packages. Doesn't ring the bell for me to pick up the package downstairs--which I would since I'm at home during the day. Just leaves package slip. I sign it. He ignores it. He really seems to resent delivering the mail.

Looks like a letter to the local postmaster is in order!
