Babwa Wawa: r1niceboy: A screen door, the main door, both closed, AND the dog musn't bark? Gimme a break.Who said the dog couldn't bark? This is what you wrote:one mail carrier won't deliver unless the screen door and main door are closed when a dog in in the house, and the dog's bark is not aggressive.Which I interpreted to mean that your dog's bark is not aggressive.Keep in mind a lot of postal carriers have 1000 or more houses on their routes - especially when they're packed in tight. Not sure what your zip code is, but the 87505 area code averages over 600 residences per carrier route.Now, I'm not sure what the douchebag to normal person ratio is, but I'm pretty sure that on every carrier route there's at least a dozen assholes who don't know how (or don't want) to control their dogs. Given the breadth of humanity that these people have to deal with, I'm going to give the mail carrier the ability to make reasonable judgments as to whether to approach a house that has a snarling dog. Particularly when considering that some people might be motivated to try to keep the mail carrier away.Whether you agree with me on that or not, we can surely agree a screen door isn't a protection from anything but insects, right Just pretend it's not there, because nobody should have to trust it to stop a dog.
Venar: "why should I apologize for anything?"And here I though Canadians were know for their apologies.

Babwa Wawa: r1niceboy: Now if a dog can turn a door handle while pulling inwards,It's not the dog that opens the door. It's the asshole owner who either thinks:1. "Oh, Spot will just lick you to death"2. "I don't want to sign for that collection notice"When I delivered pizza, I had to approach shiatty houses with snarling dogs. It was no goddam fun, and I sure as hell didn't deliver to 600+ houses every day.
here to help: It's a little known fact that Canadians are dicks.
r1niceboy: The door opening is another matter.
