However, they don't have to ruin humor, since the New Yorker has done that all by itself.

A few weeks ago I was eagerly awaiting a package and the day it was supposed to come the USPS tracking said "Attempted delivery. Could not gain access" or something like that. That's just not possible. If the package was too big for the mailbox I was actually in my front yard at the exact same time that entry was put there. I had even seen the USPS truck.

So the next day I was watching. They usually make 2 attempts and then you have to go to the post office and I hate going to the post office. I trot up to the mailboxes as soon as I saw them (there's often 2 - I guess we have that many packages?) and one carrier says "Here comes Mr. Alt looking for his package."  LOL, she remembers me.  I'm polite to my mail carriers because you don't want to be rude to the people who really do a good job 99% of the time - and that you depend on to deliver your mail.

She explained that my neighbors keep parking in front of the mailboxes and she had even posted notices. I hadn't seen the notices because I don't park in front of the mailboxes.  I'm just glad I didn't have to go to the post office and it looks like the neighbors got the message too. Parking isn't even a problem on my street - they're just lazy.

Damn kids.  Are we calling them 'Generation Alpha' now?  That's cool. I'm Gen-X. I remember when we were the kids that ruined everything too.  Just wait 'til Generation Beta comes along.

Was that supposed to be a sensible chuckle?
It wasn't a sensible chuckle.

This article was feeble beyond belief.
