A note for my postal carrier.


“If Killer and Cujo are out, I am home. In the time it takes to leave a note that you cannot deliver a package because ‘dogs were outside’, if you simply pulled in and beeped your horn I would come out and relieve you of it. Otherwise, the dogs cannot reach the front door or the garage, where you could toss the package from the comfort of your vehicle as I have seen you do in the past.”

Now I’m sure today’s inability to deliver a package has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that I complained Monday when my carrier failed to grab a scheduled pick up and had to come back at the end of shift to get it. The dogs are tied in the back of the house. Yes, they bark. They are dogs. That’s what dogs do. And now I have to complain AGAIN and everyone who knows me knows how much I hate that.
