July 2 - Garbage Mail

Mailbox Review #2: ★★☆☆☆

Mailbox Review #2: ★★☆☆☆

13th & Monroe, NW

This guy is in rough shape. Three of it's four legs are slanted and with a subtle dent on the NE side, it looks like it may have been hit by a car. 

In general, the location is pretty good. 13th and Monroe has a fair amount of foot + vehicle traffic making the mailbox accessible and eliminating any concern that it mail wouldn't be picked up regularly. But, it's positioning next to a particularly foul-smelling garbage can reduces its location score. The garbage smells really bad. Not just today, most every time I've passed it, I've noticed how bad it smells. So potent that it seems possible mail sent from this box could carry the stench all the way to its destination.  

Two stars for this mailbox. I'm pretty confident the mail will get delivered despite the box's condition.
