Fucking pussies

Snow, rain and gloom of night might not slow Brownsville mailmen down — but gangbangers sure will.
Postmen are too scared to deliver letters and packages to one of Brooklyn’s most crime-ravaged neighborhoods, a US Postal Service worker told The Post yesterday.
“The neighborhood is bad,” the worker said outside the Brownsville Station Post Office on Bristol Street. “I wouldn’t want to go into those buildings.”
Snail mail that goes undelivered finds its way back to the post office, where it can stew for several days until a carrier decides to deliver it — or residents are forced to come pick it up.

About 25 years ago I had this Plott/Coonhound bear dog that was forever breaking out of his kennel and absolutely loved to chase the mailmen down. It ended up that I had to go to the post office to get my mail.
The funny part was, I lived out in the sticks and they never even had to get out of their little buggy, but the dog would wait in ambush in the thickets next to the mailbox and then scare the fuck out of them when they reached out to put the mail in the box. Then he'd chase them about 100 yards down the road as they scattered my mail as they went.
He wouldn't do it every time, but just often enough to where they finally said 'Fuck this shit Cowboy, no more shitting on ourselves. Now you come to us.'
