Fuck The Mail Mugger

I put a few pieces of mail in our mail slot in our front door today. I noticed a few hours later it was gone, but there was no new mail waiting for me in the vestibule. It was curious. So I walked down the street to see if any other people had received mail for the day on our block. No one had. I noticed the Verizon invoice on the sidewalk. Then our Netflix envelope with the DVD we were done with. It was ripped open. I guess they aren’t a fan of Al Gore’s documentary on Global Warming. We had two other pieces of mail. They were both gone. They both had checks in them. One for our life insurance policy. The other was to deposit in our bank account from our previous landlord. So we contacted our bank to stop payment on the check for the insurance. And with no charges. Yay! And we contacted our ex-landlord to stop the payment on the check and to send us a new one.

The lesson learned is not to leave mail to be picked up in the mail slot when you live in the city. Mail thieves are the scum of the earth. I wish I knew where there were big blue USPS boxes around here. I’ve yet to find one.

Regardless, I’d love to get back at the ass wipe who stole our mail. Any ideas? And ideas that wouldn’t piss off my mail carrier.

  • I love people that drop the f-bomb in the title of their blogpost. I’ve done that a few times too.

    sorry about the mail… i didnt even know the city mail people took yoru mail if you left it in the box.. ill be darned 🙂

  • What kind of asshole steals other people’s mail? This happened occasionally years ago when I lived in Virginia. Since then, I’ve trained my eyes to constantly be on the lookout for those big blue boxes. Paying bills online has been a big help as well.

    If I ever caught a mail mugger, it would certainly be curtains for his ass.

  • Sadly, you do live in a city where there are a lot of drug addicts who will prolly do anything to get their habit on. Glad you found out in time and put a stop to that!

  • Man, sorry to hear about this. It’s so lucky you noticed and caught it in time.

  • bah this sucks! i have only put mail in the door slot once and worried about it all day. nothing happened but i’m never gonna do it again. not worth the risk! there are lots of boxes in mt vernon but i don’t know about your area.

  • Okay, crap. That sucks A$$.

  • You could put something…unpleasant in a nice-looking envelope. Something that looks like a present or something. And it could be:

    Poop
    Spiders
    Snakes

    They won’t steal YOUR mail anymore:)
