Do you? When does your mail show up?
Ours shows up at around 4:00 in the afternoon (even though Boy Detective starts asking to check it around 10:30 in the morning). So I’m wondering where the truck is before it gets here. When do they start delivering, and what are they doing before that? Does it take all morning to load the trucks? Do the same people sort and load in the morning and then drive around and deliver all afternoon? Do they spend all morning sorting whatever came in the previous day and then go deliver it?
Seriously, I cannot remember talking to a single person in my ENTIRE LIFE who said they got their mail at, say, 9:15 in the morning. My parents are known to complain that theirs doesn’t show up until almost 9:15 at night, but I think they’re exaggerating.
On a similar note, whose garbage doesn’t get picked up at 7:30 in the morning? Do they pick it all up almost simultaneously so that everyone lives in fear of forgetting to take the trash out and then having to bolt out of bed, avoid breaking an ankle while donning minimal clothing necessary to avoid arrest for indecent exposure, and run out to the curb just in time to miss the truck?
I wonder about these things.
