It happened again! Some criminally negligent driver backed into my mailbox for the third time!
If you've been over to the Chu-plex, you'd know how tricky the driveway can be. There's a sharp curve at the end that makes it extremely easy for any slight moron to knock over my mailbox. In the 2 years i've lived here, the mailbox has been backed over (now) 3 times! Not to mention the lightpole which has been backed over once. The count would surely be much higher had I been quicker about repairing it after each incident.
What really gets my goat is that NOONE EVER CLAIMS GUILT. Not a single time. Given that the only people that ever come over are friends, then that means 1-3 of my friends are responsible for damaging my property, and they haven't fessed up to it.
The most recent repair was less than a month ago - I got some quikrete, filled in the gaps around the post and the previous cement, added water, and viola! Sturdy mailbox. I even put a reflector directly in front of the mailbox to give it higher visibility.
And tonight some pissant fool decided to use my driveway as a turnaround, and knocked the cursed mailbox over again.
Thanks to the copious amount of snow on the ground, I can clearly see the villianous cretin's tire tracks - from the car's entry from the road, where it stopped in the middle of my driveway, backed straight off the driveway onto the yard and into the mailbox, drove forward, turned the wheel and went out correctly, and scurried away into the night, too uncivilized to leave a note of responsibility.
I swear, I'm going to put a landmine right behind the mailbox, or some other sort of car-damaging trap. Let oblivious drivers beware the house of Chu.
Offended? Intrigued? Contact my manager.
Here begins your journey into the mind of everybody's favorite asian, and I don't mean Jet Li.
What follows is the somewhat inane, mostly irrelevant, and self-important ramblings of a man on the brink of madness.
Welcome... to the Chu.
