If you need a sticker on your mailbox to find it, you belong in a assisted living home. There is a number on the box that is very clear and the box is always in the same location.

If your key doesn't unlock the box, you can be pretty sure the box belongs to someone else!

Default My Process for finding mailbox.

I just remember how many sections from the left and how many boxes down mine is. We are 3 left 1 down. The actually section of boxes should be pretty easy to remember. This eliminates the need for a sticker.

Default Re mailbox stickers

We are in Lynnhaven and just noticed how much better the mail boxes look although we have our modestly marked, plus I can remember our box number. Why, I just don't know!!!

IMHO, I think the stickers on the mailboxes don't look as tacky as the house numbers on the windows.

Question

With all the dementia, bad eyesight, and loss of mobility, why make it more difficult for old people? What do the stickers hurt, and does the PO want the elderly to be stacked up at the mailboxes for hours?

I agree. And beyond that, of all the things people can think of to complain about ... this rates pretty high on the silly-meter. I know...rules are rules...and if the USPS or their reps decide to scrape off the stickers - so be it. But for residents to get upset about those tiny stickers on their NEIGHBORS mailboxes...Why?

I'm pretty sure some folks should add some fiber to their diet. It'll make them less cranky.

Easier to use a label maker and paste the box number on your key than to get the Post Office to change.

Why is it so hard to put the mailbox NUMBER on your key? Since you need the key to open the box. Get off the worries of IF you lost the key some one could use it, or other excuses. They would have to go to all PO boxes looking. who would do that? i would worry more about the other keys... but how would they know that?
Btw. I recently saw keys in a baggy at a po station hanging on a wall that were lost. Think some one says . Gee let me take those and find where they go!
Comes down to vanity, self-centeredness, or other personable issues why someone needs to put a sticker on a box IMHO. Same reason people put stickers on golf carts, cars, or paint their carts their college or personal colors. I have been known to always listen to all sides of an issue, but reading these posts I haven't heard a valid one for stickers. Leave public property as it is without putting each personal touch on it. You don't own the box, you rent it, it is not yours to deface.
