There’s Something Odd Going On Here.

12 Sep

September 12, 2017

For many, many years, my building had the mail delivered by one regular postman. Other than his regular summer vacations, he was always here at about 1:oo. At some point his route changed and he started coming at 4:00, but whichever time he was supposed to be here, he was here.

He was really good and dependable. Packages were brought to our door and we knew him, and he knew us, by name and friendly greetings. Eventually he retired and of course for years now our mail service has sucked. He was probably the only good mailman in Brooklyn.

Everyone loves 1950’s clip art!

I’ve detailed before how packages get stolen in my building, letters don’t arrive, and the postal carrier shows up anywhere from noon to six pm. (But I will give him credit. Most of the mail ends up in the correct boxes, at least half of the time.)

But lately the mail has been showing up at close to 8 pm. This can’t be a regular route. What postal worker is out delivering mail at that hour?

And it gets odder. I’ve seen the mailman twice. Both times he was delivering the mail with an “assistant,” an older woman that has to be his wife. She doesn’t wear a uniform and takes mail out of a school knapsack.

Also, I get a service from the USPS. They email me pictures of my mail that is scheduled to be delivered that day. For a while it was spot on, now the letters in the email arrive about three days later. If at all.

So am I right in assuming that much of my mail is sitting in that guy’s living room, along with piles of other people’s mail that my carrier may never get to because he has fallen so far behind?

What’s Next For Dennis Rodman?

9 Jan

January 9, 2014

Dennis rodman sure is making headlines with his North Korean Love Tour. He’ singing Happy Birthday to a brutal dictator, he’s dropping F-bombs and screaming at reporters on CNN, and he’s making the rest of his NBA aging all-stars rethink their life choices.

When he returns to the USA he has a lot of options for his next move. We here at BTR/Gossip have EXCLUSIVELY learned that he’s planning a jailhouse visit to Bernie Madoff, as well as a trip to Cuba to party with Raul Castro. But even worse, I hear he’s planning on deflowering Honey Boo Boo when she comes of age.

Well, the Editors and Staff of Mr. Blog’s Tepid Ride say “why not us?”

Hey, Kim Jung-Un threw his uncle to the dogs? I’ll throw Allan Keyes to the rabid wolverines. How about that, Rodman?

3/4 of North Korea has no electricity? I’ve been running Mr. BTR on candle power for years.

I don’t need a team of all-stars or a Happy Birthday serenade. Show up, take a few pics, we’ll share some wings, and we’ll get about a billion hits for bmj2k.com. That’s what it’s all about.

See you soon Dennis!
