10 Ways to Surprise Your Mail Carrier

Round Up reader Sheryl Owen writes to let us know about an article that appears on the website which asks, "When was the last time you stopped your mail carrier to say hello or thank him or her for the work they are doing on a daily basis?"

Listing 10 ways to show love and appreciation for the men and women who bring us good news and bad, the article suggests, " The next time you see your mail carrier, say hello to them and let them know that you really appreciate their efforts to deliver your mail. You can let them know how much you look forward to the letters they bring and other important items. You would be surprised by how much a few kind words can mean to them."

The article goes on to say, "Remember the joy you experienced when you got your first letter in the mail and consider that without the post office you would never have been able to experience it. If you keep that in mind you might view getting your mail less like drudgery and more with anticipation. Plus, you may just be more friendly with your carrier (as if they were the flower delivery person).

...they are providing a daily service to you and do it without requesting anything in return all through the year. Show them you appreciate their dedication."
