NO. NO. NO. Don't be done with TOTV. Please stay. You have to get a little tough skinned to post on here and we all are frequently misunderstood. Your input is important, and I can well see how you would feel discouraged and downright impatient in the situation you described.. I don't know who said what...but don't you leave.

Unfortunately we live in an age where genralization of isolated incidents seems to be a norm (of sorts) which distorts reality.
Wow... this went form I almost got T-boned at the mail box station to gun control and shooting people? What? Even if I could I wouldn't.

Does any one besides me feel that the majority of mail stations are one way around the station? At our station The parking spots are on a diagonal and when entering the mail area there is a "no left turn sign" which to me indicates there is only one way to go. I'm always amazed by the number of carts and cars that back out of a space and continue to back up until they can drive out the exit rather than drive around the station and safely out.
I had a guy stick his finger in my face when I informed him it was one way as he was starting to do his uey ( U-turn) and he was adamant that " no where does it indicate one way traffic". To me it is dangerous. Is it possible that so many people lack common sense?
