The house is empty and up for sale,
so it is understandable they do not want mail delivered.
But if I was the postman,I would still stick the letters through the letterbox,
to save me taking them all the way back to the depot !!

Great idea! If finances turn south, then one can use this approach to lower one's billing pressures. TG

All very well if the Postman/Postwoman can read Mike, unlike some of ours who appear illiterate, and leave all "left over" mail in the last box of the run ! - (I'd like to say "just kidding" but I can't) Sad - top pic though ...Bill

The postman has to put them through by law.....The only thing that would stop him doing so is to completely seal the letterbox up.
