Do You Have An Awkward Letter Box?

Other

Just been out delivering leaflets for my daughter’s pub today. Have you ever delivered anything into your own letterbox? So many people have really ackward letterboxes, really stiff, low ones and some that actually bite your hand. I feel sorry for the post people doing this everyday. Please check your postbox and see what it’s like....

It's been probably 20 years since I posted things in people's letter boxes, but yes some were really awful as you mentioned.

My letter box is user friendly and in the middle of the door, I feel sorry for the postie when the letter boxes are at the bottom of the door I think that all doors should have the letter box in the middle of the door to make it easier for them to deliver the post

I know where you are coming from and feel a bit bad as our door has a thick curtain hanging in an attempt to stop draughts. I try to be as helpful as I can but it makes larger items difficult to push through.

Has she ever got anyone? That is my fear of letterboxes as to what is on the other side, so far had only one dog jump up.

Many years ago I used to deliver leaflets,yellow pages,bt phone book etc. Letter boxes of all sizes from tiny ones that you could just slide 1 leaflet into to catflap sizes to accommodate small parcels

Some at the bottom of the door some so high I couldn't even reach them
