New Mailbox

August 9, 2007 at 8:59 pm 2 comments

How many trips to the home improvement store does it take to purchase and install a mailbox?

Trip 1
Purchase a mailbox and post (The box for the post says no dig).

Trip 2
Mailbox is a different color than the post. Have to buy a new mailbox.

Trip 3
Post has to have a 9 inch hole 20 inches deep and be set in concrete. Rent a post hole digger and buy concrete to set the post in.

Trip 4
The mailbox is oversized and will not fit in the bracket provided with the post. Can’t find an oversized bracket so we purchase some wood.

The mailbox is in and has been standing for 3 days.

    OK… Question…

    Didn’t you realize that the mailbox and post were different colors during the first trip…

    OR — and more likely

    You noticed, and didn’t care, until you got home and Abi told you she cared. Thus requiring the 2nd trip.

    I hate to bring this up but…

    Abi purchsed the mailbox and post. It would appear that the lighting at Lowes leaves something to be desired.
