So does anyone know how the tags work around here? Because these:

Don't really make much sense....

So what's the problem? If you want them to visit your slot, trim the bush, you don't have to shave it all the way down to the grass, just make it neater.

There's a Daily Mail link in the sidebar about how James Gandolfini and Aaron Hernandez got Shropshire bubblegum all over the stupid Royal Mail. You'd expect better from alumni of Central Washington University.

Don't see what the story is. He was asked to address the issue, and he tied the bushes back. Other solutions may have been to A. Cut the dang things, or B. Move the post box. Story is basically they picked on me waaa.

Subby is stupid for thinking that anyone in their right mind would willingly walk through an entire bush of the above picture. My neighbors have a blackberry and raspberry bushes in two giant pots next to my own pots. Those things grow everywhere, and I've had to pull thorns from my own flesh when I'm gardening since the branches like to dry out and fall into my own plants.

Trim your damn bush!!!

Aggressive raspberry bushes were the bane of my youth.

They like to invade disturbed ground, and since the logging companies liked to strip whole forests and then plow the soil and undergrowth up and plant hopeless little conifers in the sub-soil exposed by the bulldozers, raspberry bushes were extremely numerous and aggressive.

They didn't wait for your Mother to decide that today would be a nice day to take the kids out and fill a plastic washbasin full of raspberries for canning or making pies. They came after you, demanding you pick them. Surrounded by aggressive raspberry bushes, we kids went down for the third time, but we went down fighting, or rather eating as many raspberries as we picked.

Seeing as raspberries sell for $2.50 or more per half pint tray in stores, we easily ate enough raspberries to pay for a surf and turf dinner.

Blueberries aren't nearly as aggressive as raspberries. They don't grow taller than you are, the worst they can do is knee-cap you.

Raspberry bushes invaded the fields and the roads, cutting off your escape. You had to pick or be pricked and very often both.

Now the lumber mill is dead and the village is dying. Soon it will be overrun by raspberries. There won't be enough berry-pickers. All trace of man will vanish, except for concrete basements, rusting water heaters and, of course, the pollution buried in the soil with the rusting oil tanks and gasoline pumps.

But the raspberries will wait. They have all the time in the world.


Next week: Fiddleheads. Are they really a treat or just spinach and to Hell with them?

He's got a beard! He's a bio-terrorist! Run away! Run away!


I have to agree with Postman Pat. Those raspberries are too aggressive. He should take a pruning hook or some garden sheers to them. Remember, they make postmen wear shorts nowadays. Aggressive raspberries and ankle-nippers are more of a threat than they used to be when postmen had to wear wooly trousers of Arctic thickness.
 
2013-06-28 08:28:35 PM  
Between the bush and little fences, the path is pretty obstructed, plus raspberry bushes have prickers. People just want to get in, shove you mail in you box and get out, not carefully pick their way around your cluttered yard.
 
2013-06-28 08:29:21 PM  
Jeez. Grizzly Adams there needs to hit that place with some Roundup. Then maybe a controlled burn.
 
2013-06-28 08:34:23 PM  
That's a really stupid spot for thorny, intrusive bushes.

Seriously. He's retired. It's not like he has anything better to do. How about he takes some of that time he saves on personal hygiene and trim the damned bushes.

If you ever had to walk through raspberry bushes you would agree.

Hopefully, some day the homeowner and postal workers can berry the hatchet.  I mean, every bush has its thorns, it's true, but maybe the homeowner should conseed the point ... just trim the bush a little bit every now and then.
 
2013-06-28 08:57:00 PM  
Jesus, dude.  Clear the path to your mailbox.  And then get out there and trim your bushes.

Geez. Come to the NW coast of 'murica Mr. Mailman. We'll show you what a "problem" berry bush looks like. That's nothing but a big weed. However, given how fast those things grow and take over entire fields (not quite as invasive as say, Kudzu, but....) it won't kill you Mr. Flatowner to whack it back a bit. Those thorns hurt like hell, so they have a valid point, albeit being a bit of a pansy about it.

Nanny state postal workers are a bunch of farking pussies.  Crazy retired coot should move the farking mailbox!
 
2013-06-28 09:06:36 PM  
Wild raspberry thorns will embed themselves in your skin.  When you try to pull away the entire stalk moves along with you.  I've had them stick to my scalp.
 
2013-06-28 09:06:58 PM  
Spiders and snakes will lurk in that bush, and the one with raspberries on it.

Trim them both, old man.

This.

Blackberry bushes are the plant equivalent of promiscuous rabid feral animals.  The plants in TFA look more like blackberry than raspberry.

I have a thorn buried in my right thumb from Kiowa blackberries, so I'm getting a kick.

Which is weird because it doesn't have to be that cluttered.  He's got lots of yard there, why plant them right next to the mailbox?

The dipshiat homeowner doesn't realize that the postman has to also carry a farking bag with him.  You couldn't get Kim Kardie and a 3oz purse past those bushes you CERTAINLY couldn't get a mailbag on the average reformed yob past them.
