Mr. Mailbox another encounter
Yesterday I had another run in with Mr. Mailbox. I am sorry but that guy is just a pain in the butt. I don’t really know what his problem is. Anyway I was taking a walk with my A and R. As we where on our way home he struck.
As you all know there is no sidewalk in front of his house so we were walking on the grass in order to stay out of the road. I was on my leash and we were not bothering anyone. So Mr. Mailbox is standing in his front yard and yells “Could you please not walk on my yard” My A apparently did not hear him and said “Excuse me” Mr. Mailbox repeated “ Could you please not walk on my yard”
Well My A pointed out to him that the town owns the first 6 feet of his yard and we had every right to walk there. Does this guy really want us to walk in the street? We could be killed. Mr. Mailbox did not agree with my A on the ownership of said property. I personally know my A has checked this out and been assured that the property is public. We continued on our path and went home.
My A felt a little bad because Mr. Mailbox did say please. However his tone was not particularly nice. Personally I feel that this guy yells at a lot of people and that my A should continue to stand up to him and not take the path of least resistance. Sure it would have been easy to just step off into the street but then he wins. What about the kids and other people he yells at.
What makes this guy feel so superior that I can not walk in front of his house? I let everyone walk in front of my house. It drives me nuts when people take these positions that are not defensible. Go ahead call the police and tell them I am walking on your yard. Sorry but it is not your yard punk!. If it takes you calling the police on me to get your head out of your butt then do it.
We all live here why is it so hard for you to just be nice. My A and I have tried to be nice to you but it is not worth the effort anymore. I get along with everyone else in my neighborhood so I doubt it is me. I think it is you. Get a life! I am sure you don’t want me trying to figure out what you are doing with that Fort Knox mailbox.
Hmm you are always home during the day. You worry about people stealing your mail. It makes me wonder what you are getting through the Mail? Is there perhaps a reason beyond the typical why you are afraid of dogs? Is not so much that we could rip you to shreds with out teeth, but more because with the right training we might be able to detect what is in your mailbox?
Please enjoy the first 6 feet of “your” yard while you can. If I have anything to say about it you won’t have it much longer.
