Those blue mailboxes that sit out cost the post offices money, so post offices are taking them down in some places. And as less people send out snail mail the less services can be rendered. Some people in the town of Otisfield, Maine are even willing to chain themselves to keep these mail boxes, which I find ridiculous, but people do need to send their mail out. Often the mailboxes are not far away from the post office, but sometimes they are in places that that actually greatly help people such as in Otisfield which doesn’t even have a post office. I think that mailboxes can be taken down where they’re just in front of a post office, but a town without a post office should have a place to sent their mail. What do you think? Do you think this is legitimate or just hilarious?
