  1. Stop delivering to these locations! If the people in their own neighborhoods can’t leave letter carriers alone, then they don’t deserve the universal service guarantee and letter carriers should not have to deliver to these areas. I would refuse, I know that. Privileges are things that are earned and can be lost. The USPS gives customers free delivery service to their door or in the case of NDCBU’s very near by, and the only cost is when a customer sends something to be mailed. Not to mention in all types of weather.
    People who are mean, stupid violent pieces of shit ruin life for all of us, and if they make it impossible for a letter carrier to work without fear of being attacked or worse, then mail service must be permanently discontinued to that neighborhood. There is no excuse for this kind of bullshit.
