Day 4 – Letterbox
In England I’d say it’s rather rare (at least in the part of the country I live in) to see a letterbox that is out of the house by some distance like Americans do. Interesting story (not really but I’m going to tell it anyway) the post used to just fall on the floor but since, when this used to happen, we had 3 dogs mail would often come to us in bits and pieces because the dogs often got to it first. So to prevent this we had to get a guard to go over the letterbox. It’s actually really handy since whenever post is delivered I get to just wander past the door and quickly pick out the post, before it would be a case of tracking down which dog had the post and fighting them for it.
Also we used to get complaints from the postmen that our dogs would ‘bite’ them while they were trying to put the post through the door. In total honesty the only way you’d get bite is if you had your while hand wedged through the letterbox and in that case they would of deserved it.
Anyway that’s my letterbox… very exciting I know.
Thank you for reading,
I’ll see you in the next post, take care 🙂
