Prevent my mail from being stolen. ... The mailman repeatedly leaves the mailbox lid open after putting the mail in the box. There is nothing wrong with the mailbox or lid. It is easy to close and will stay closed if properly closed. Today is the fourth time it has been left open in the past month. There is a lot of foot traffic on my street right beside the mailbox and I receive a lot of small packages. The mailman comes too early in the morning for me to catch him to speak with him about this problem.
There is a lot of foot traffic past the mailbox and this is not the best part of town any more. A lot of the foot traffic is*are kids. I, (and the neighbors), are afraid they might steal things out of mailboxes, especially since we have been havin recent auto and yard thefts.
Simply shut the mailbox lid.
I support the mail system. I prefer using pen and paper instead of e-mail.
We would love to catch the mailman and speak with him directly but he comes too early in the morning and is hard to catch, especially since I am disabled and have trouble walking.
