The guy in the upstairs apartment keeps his bathroom fan running 24/7. I keep trying to check what I've left running.

It's hard to carry on, especially on Friday, after the boss has gone home.

Can't blame you - I don't even like walking to the curb to get mine (except for Monday nights when I happen to be there anyway to prepare for trash collection).

Is that one of those "one bank of mailboxes for the development" arrangements?. They are fine if you can drive up and get your mail on the way home, but can be a royal pain if you have to walk from your house, depending on where you are. Lucky for me, the only time I had one of those, it happened to be placed just across the street from our front door. It was still somewhat less than optimal when the weather was crappy.

I am very happy to have "suburban mail service" that's delivered to my front door. I can reach the mail without stepping foot outdoors.

I had one of those ďone mailbox for 24 housesĒ arrangements once.

Advantages:
1) When it was vandalized it wasnít my problem to fix.
2) I am a soft actuary and I needed the exercise anyway.
3) Guy in the corner house was always outside watering his lawn, and we always had a pleasant chat while I was getting it.

Disadvantages:
1) Slightly obnoxious

Iíve also had the mailbox on the front of the house, right on the front porch. That was the best: didnít even have to put on shoes to get the mail, and much more secure, although certainly a bigger PITA for the USPS.

The worst is a box at the end of your driveway. Itís going to get vandalized, even in a nice neighborhood. The itís your problem to deal with it. Actually, I guess one of those across the street would be slightly worse just because then youíd also have to cross the street.

Or if not vandalized, hit by the municipal snowplow. Yeah, those "across the street from the end of my driveway" mailboxes are a nuisance.
