They Form Strong Bonds With the People They Serve
Mail carriers make deep connections with the people in their communities. They might show up at just the right time, such as for a family event and it’s not uncommon for the people they serve to go out and have small talk with them.
Like we said earlier, they may seem rushed, but it doesn’t mean they don’t appreciate you being friendly with them. You may make a friend for life with them and they could even help you out of a pickle if they see something amiss!
Small Things Are Really Meaningful to Them
Even if you’re tired or you’re in a rush, make sure to park your car in the driveway. Don’t obstruct your mailboxes!
Just think about it, if it takes you a few extra minutes to park in your driveway then it’ll also take mail carriers extra time to get to your mailbox.
They Look Out for Mistakes
A mail carrier who knows his or her route very well might spot mistakes on letters. For example, your name could be right but your house number could be off by one digit one way or another. If you’ve still got the right envelope, you know who to thank!
Be Considerate in Snowy Weather
We know, we know, nobody likes sweeping or shoveling their stairs… but you should still be considerate and do it.
Think about the mail carrier that has to walk all day. If they encounter more than one house with difficult to reach mailboxes because of the weather, it’ll just make the job harder. Please, be considerate!
