Oops! Turns out my neighborhood pool has a sign and the postal station just hangs off the parking lot.

Looks like many of the stations between 466 and 44 are located at the neighborhood pools. This may not be the case north of 466 or south of 44.

I could be wrong but I believe it is illegal to put a sticker on your mailbox??? Anyone know?

Default Such fun.

Getting a kick out of this thread.
Our mailbox has a couple of stickers on it that were put on by a friend who was picking up our mail for a couple of months. Said it made zeroing in on the box easier for her. Just left them there.
As for me, box is at the back of the building, seven steps from the corner, third section, second row down, fourth from the right, Number xxxxx, and it has 2 small stickers. I sure am glad those stickers are there or I might never find it. 😃😃😃

It must be wonderful to be you but for those of us who suffer from dyslexia the stickers are a big help.

What does that say about me? I think it says I just can't be bothered with nonsense.
There is a small generic happy face on my mailbox which was inherited. I left it there, makes it easy to find my box among the multitude of similar ones. Otherwise, at night especially I would have to bring a flashlight to look at the long numbers on the boxes. I’ve taken photos on my iPhone to find my box which is in the center of many boxes on either side but the tiny sticker on it is what I end up using.

Imagine going grocery shopping. You park in an empty parking lot. When you come out the lot is full of vehicles same make, model and color as yours and the only difference is the license number. Having a visible sign or indicator would help making your vehicle stand out from all the clones.

Then I get out of my car and stand in front of a wall of over 300 identical doors. Sure, by now I know the general location of my door so that narrows it down a bit. I should remember the number but I don't. But the little sign (sticker) on the door helps me find the right door.

I guess the sticker is just like the sign on the road that helps me find the right building except there is only one building to choose from but over 300 doors.


EDIT: Oops! Turns out my neighborhood pool has a sign and the postal station just hangs off the parking lot.
Love your satirical sense of humor.

Painting the aluminum doors? I'm sure that will hold up well...

There's an awful lot of boxes!

Personally, I haven't a clue as to my box #... I know it's general vicinity, and the stickers help me hone in...
