Thursday Doors 21 May • Making Sense For The Postman
In one of my previous posts I had focused on the number of doorbells per door, as an indication of the number of singles, couples or families living behind that door. But how does the postman make any sense of that?
One door, one name, one doorbell and one letterbox. Not much can go wrong here… so you think. Unless you’ve got an illiterate postman, or one one who doesn’t give a s***. Every year I receive dozens of letters that are clearly addressed to someone else. With a different address and a different zip-code. I stopped my mailman twice to confront him about it, quite nicely that is. At first. The grumpy bastard just didn’t give me any indication he gave a flying f***! Or maybe he was just masking his illiteracy. Or maybe both.
One thing I grant him, things can become a bit confusing, like in the above case. Which letterbox to use for #82? Or does it even matter?
My postman isn’t the only one struggling. Delivery guys (girls) of door-to-door advertising folders and door-to-door weeklies have a hard time knowing what to deliver where. Hence the stickers you see
