Postal Carriers, Bikers Disrespectful

May 31, 2014

To the Readers’ Forum: Why is it okay for our postal carriers, amongst others, to cut across lawns to get to other customers homes? I find this rude and very disrespectful....

Jake if the homeowner was outside why didn't you have the courtesy of asking his permission.

Jazzie-Some people need their mail in time to get to the bank if they are expecting a check. By adding a couple of miles to the route those folks may not get their main in time. They aren't lazy, they are trying to provide good service.

Jazzie, your going the distance analogy is erroneous and does not relate to a postal worker doing his/her job. Hard work is part of America and that is what this person is doing...Mr Forsythe is out of line here. If it is sooooo troublesome to Mr. Forsythe that a postal worker walks on his grass, he should have QUIETLY gone to the postal supervisor and expressed his objections. Petty.

It's called trespassing for one, and wow! It's a no wonder this country is fat. Don't like the exercise, then don't apply for the job. I thought "Going the Distance" meant something in America today in todays workforce. No wonder kids can behave the way they can.

I personally ran across this problem during a walk in Long Island. While walking down a street the sidewalk abruptly ended and I therefore had to, at curbside, trod across a homeowners lawn. Holy moses you'd have thought the world was coming to an end. The homeowner, a retired sort of gent happened to be outside in/on??? his driveway and gave me the holy dickens. I simply told him where to go, a rather warm spot though it may be and to get a life.

In conclusion; how small does one have to be to refuse access to your lawn to a municipally and federally sanctioned member of society during the daily procedure of a very socially and individually useful task. Get a life, be quiet and let the poor postal worker to his/her job. Let alone the hills & inclines, the errant, ill-trained canines, the mismarked boxes from a rapidly changing occupancy in any given apt. building the last thing this poor guy needs to anticipate during the completion of his daily task is an irate old man.

A few years back we had to move our mailbox because the carrier wasn't allowed to come up the steps. We did and he cut across thd lawn to get to it which wasn't even neaf the nee location. I adked why he could do tgat and go up the steps. When tge walk with their supervisor they don't cross lawns.

I wonder where Mr. Forsythe will find his mail in the future? Really, Mr. Forsythe, with all that is happening in the world, an hard-working postal carrier walking on your lawn is pretty petty.

I'm just trying to figure out how Ronnie boy mows his lawn? Some sort of Star Wars hover-craft? Or does he just march up and down on the grass?

I find it very rude that this writer would want to add what could amount to miles to a carriers route by making them walk the extra distance to every house. Put a sign up telling them not to use your lawn and show the world what a jerk you are.

FYI, postal carriers ARE REQUIRED by the postal management to cross lawns unless there is a written letter from the property owner not to cross lawns.
