    Default Town plow trucks did some damage to my mailbox.

    Well it is just minor damage I can fix it with a hammer but they finally swung the box right over the supporting pipe again.

    Look at the red circle that is the first real damage the mailbox had sustained, then the 2 tabs to the left of the of the circle are to support the door when opened got bent this last time.

    In this one you can see how the 2 tabs are bent down and the dog on the top of the box is bent down by the top pipe when it was swung completely over the top.

    Here you can see how the box has been swung all the way over the top of the supporting pipe it hangs from.

    I really don’t mind that they hit it, I think it’s funny when I hear the load clang it makes when they hit it.

    It’s just that the dam thing weights in around 80 lbs and when they swing it all the way over the support pipe I have to swing it back over while standing in the snow.

    Technology is great, when it Works,
    And one Big Pain in the Ass When it Doesn’t.
