Where have all the mailboxes gone?

This morning, I stopped at Almaden Plaza on the way into work to grab a cup of decaf from Starbucks and to drop a check in the mailbox there (I don’t leave checks in my mailbox at home any more for fear of theft). I failed in both missions.

The decaf of the day at Starbucks was Decaf Verona Blend; I don’t like the regular Verona Blend, and didn’t think the decaf would be an improvement.

And the mailbox across the parking lot was gone — there was still a UPS dropbox, but the mailbox vanished with no forwarding address. You’d almost think the Post Office didn’t want people to mail things any more….

*sigh*

    Hi David,

    Evidently the elimination of the blue mail drop boxes is an acknowledged trend, along with the antique stamp vending mathines.
