You have GOT to be kidding me!

04062009

We must have some of the worst drivers in the world. Our mailbox got nailed. AGAIN. It was first knocked down in January 2007, by a plow, so the city put in a temporary mailbox. We meant to get a new one put up sometime over the summer, but time slipped away and it started snowing in October, and we missed our chance. So, April of 2008 comes around and some idiot in an SUV nails the temporary mailbox, so we coughed up the dough for a handyman to dig out the old concrete and post, pour new concrete, and sink a new post & attach the mailbox. It has been less than a year, now ... and look! I'm glad I kept the guys business card. Dang.

If it was a snow plow, doesn't the city have insurance for issues like this?

You were wise to hang on to the business card.
That does suck.....but think of what fun you can have decorating and designing a new mailbox a couple times a year!!!!

OK, this time, you buy (or scavenge) a small supply of bricks or big rocks, buy a bag of mortar, mix it up and build an enclosure for your mailbox post. At least when somebody hits it again it will do more damage to their vehicle than it will to your mailbox!
