Pitch, I agree with you that most postal employees are NOT incompetent. My grandfather was a rural postal carrier back when all he had to carry the mail in was a horse-drawn buggy and he did his job well, even when thunderstorms spooked the horse and made his job actually life-threatening.

BUT, I also know Clod to be a very calm person unless unduly provoked. He is not the kind of guy to march into the Post Office and start a voilent scene. I have SEEN him remain amazingly calm and unruffled while having to work in 100 degree heat in the hot sun. He has more patience than a lot of guys would.

And, where he lives and works is NOT hard to find, even for someone who has not been trained by the post office to find certain addresses. There is a very large major business basically across the highway to use as a landmark and then nothing else all around but fields for quite a distance on both sides of the MAJOR highway.
