Mail Box, Etc.

Yesterday I posted about our mailbox being hit by an errant driver.

Today I'm following up with some new details and a detail I forgot to include yesterday.

The little path of destruction doesn't show the pieces that the police picked up and took with them. Those pieces include one of the car's headlights, a large piece of red fender, and a piece of the bumper. So the damage was more extensive than I represented.

Further, when I got home from work yesterday, guess what red and damaged car was sitting in front of our driveway. You guessed it. The culprit's car. And when I left for work this morning, guess what red and damaged car was in front of the house. You guessed it again.

Of course when I appeared each time, the red and damaged car disappeared, but it caused me to muse. What the heck is he doing here?

Does this person of a different and somewhat unfamiliar ethnic background somehow blame us for his troubles? Will our flat screen TV be here when we get home tonight? Maybe, he's feeling very contrite and is trying to figure out how to make retribution. Or maybe he's just amazed that this happened and is surveying the damage to try to get his head around it all. I'm confused.

What do you think is going on?


  1. Welcome back!...and...OH MY GOSH!!!! What a story. I'm just also glad that all of our cars weren't parked there like they were just a few nights ago!!! whew! I'm glad you got a new box, though. I'm confused... but this guy must've gotten out of jail, then paid to get his car out of the impound lot and then just can't stay away from your house??? strange. Who do you think called the police? him? hmmm.....

    Love, Amy

  2. That's very odd and makes me worry that he's sticking around. If you see him again, you should consider calling the police. There are a lot of crazies out there and as my wise mother always said, better safe than sorry!

    By the way, did you say that? Or did I make that up?


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
