Said Dibble, "I am the victim."

Of your own stupidity, yes.  Anything else, not so much.

Why am I visualizing an edited copy of the Constitution stapled to his fence and a stash of guns in the basement.

the United States Postal Service will no longer deliver mail to him

He's cracked the code.

"Fearing that "the drug dealer across the street" and a woman who runs a "house of prostitution next door" were stealing his letters, a 63-year-old Floridian put a mousetrap in his mailbox."

The whore and junkie were stealing the letters Trump was sending with the White House postmark.

(I can understand why certain people might want to nose through other people's mail)
Fearing that "the drug dealer across the street"
(that's would not one of them)
and a woman who runs a "house of prostitution next door"
(neither is that)

Dibble, the cop on the cartoon Top Cat.

At least nobody will steal his Mail anymore.

This guy's problem is that the Second Amendment doesn't protect your right to keep and bear mousetraps.

FTA:  Naturally, Dibble went about setting a trap inside the mailbox at the end of his driveway, raising the flag to falsely indicate a delivery of a less painful sort had been made.

Hey dumba--...the flag on the mailbox is to let the mail carrier know that you have outgoing mail to be picked up, not that the carrier has left items in your box.

I seriously doubt either the oxbox trap setter or the reporter have the mental faculties  to grasp the fine nuances of what you just pointed out

Hookers next door? Party favors across the street? And he's worried about his mail?

Clearly, he's doing Florida wrong. Giggity.


/Or he's a victim of his own delusion

For his next trick he'll slam the gas instead of the brake when approaching a farmer's market.

Well shiat, there goes that solution to the ceiling-cat watching me masturbate.

So, what do you do when the USPS stops delivering to you?  Is there any other way to get mail, I mean, how do you get power bills and shiat?
 
2017-06-21 04:56:14 AM  
They hold the mail and you pick it up.

Just no door to door delivery for your crazy arse.

You pick it up yourself at the post office.

The guy should have called the post office complaining about missing mail. They would've investigated, maybe even arrested someone. He screwed himself, that's for sure.

Farkit, I'm putting a 10 mousetraps in my mailbox if it means the USPS wont deliver mail to me anymore.

FARK them. They can't even deliver what little mail I get anyways. It always gets lost or goes to the wrong house.

they need to go bankrupt and be abolished. Double tap to the head and burned to the ground.

The post office doesn't investigate a damn thing. They investigate themselves, open a ticket, let it time out and say sorry its now closed, fark off.

The only time I got anything out of anyone is when I went to the USPS OIG in DC on a trip and made a very lengthy complaint with documentation. After that my mail was lost for months, but I got a nice list of every supervisor phone number and I ended up with a new mail carrier and the local Postmaster was force retired.
