Something interesting happened the other day. We passed by our previous postman from before moving. We still know & greet each other (of course :-)). When he saw us, he waved at us and said “wait”, then looked into his mail carrier and … gave me a letter adressed to the previous address. That is in so far interesting as we moved quite some years ago.
Thinking back, I always knew the mail deliverers when I was a child/teenager already crazy for mail. Back then, there were 2 of them splitting the mail delivery at our building, a man and a woman. Back then, mail delivery worked greatly and mostly without mistake – quite in contrary, there were even postcards where our elder relatives had forgotten a number or something. They always knew us and we always got all the mail.
Today? Today you kind of feel lucky if the mailperson seems to be able to read the alphabet & read the numbers. They eg. deliver mail for X-street 10 to Y-street 10 and things like that … if people are not brave and bring wrong post to your door or drop it to the mailbox again, this piece of mail is lost.
So how is it at your end?
Do you know your mail man/woman?
How good is the delivery?
