r1niceboy: the dog's bark is not aggressive
Tricky Chicken: Can I do this to my stairs and get the mailman to stop coming? All he brings are mass market fliers and credit card applications. I wish I wish he'd go away.
Venar: "why should I apologize for anything?"And here I though Canadians were know for their apologies.
redmid17: I hate to agree with an old curmudgeon, but he's right. If you can't deal with an extra 2", you probably shouldn't be delivering mail.
Babwa Wawa: r1niceboy: But a dog behind a door is usually just shouting that there's someone behind my owner's door. It's not a life-threatening situation, unless of course, that the dog can open two sets of doors. Or has a bazooka.A screen door won't stop any but the smallest of dogs. I'm sure it's far less inconvenient for you to just shut your dog than it is for your mail carrier to wonder whether the dog is aggressive, and if so, whether the screen door is strong enough to hold it.It's a reasonable policy, particularly when there are 500 or 1000 residences on a route.

Babwa Wawa: r1niceboy: the dog's bark is not aggressiveThis always makes me laugh. "My dog wouldn't hurt anybody." That might be the case, but how the f*ck is the postal carrier supposed to know that? Smart people treat dogs as potentially aggressive unless proven otherwise.
The Beatings Will Continue Until Morale Improves: "This guy comes along and he can't do his job? Then he shouldn't be delivering mail."That sounds like exactly what's happening.Also, why would and elderly man with limited mobility have steps that are difficult to climb?
outtatowner: So far, in 8 years of having rural to-side-of-road mailbox delivery we have had exactly NONE of these issues. That is until 2 weeks ago when apparently a supervisor did a round around the circuit. For 8 years the mailman would always wave and say hi whenever he could (80km/h zone, so loud).My mailbox is literally touching my neighbours (only 2 of them in that row). They are off-set by <2 inches at the front-flap. Yep, got an issuance to move it 2 inches forward into perfect line with neighbour.First one in 8 years. Hoping it's just an overzealous super new to the jorb. Sigh.Go Canada, where if you live in Ottawa, you still address by pre-amalgamation burrows since the city is too cheap to pay to have the address-space organized. Seriously, in the Snowy North (tm) capital we have such duplicity of addresses by road name it's silly. Not to mention more farm-land than some African countries. I mean we have a farm not 5km away from parliament buildings. With cows and everything!//end csb
