This jackass looks (a LOT) smarter than my postman, who once handed me a "sorry we missed you" card instead of the package I was standing by my box to receive.

I hiked to Supai last year and got to see up close and personally how mule delivery works. I'm not really sure why they don't use the helicopters that now deliver tourists to the village. Must be cheaper.

I hope for the day when Pneumatic Tubes make a come back and my mail and such get delivered to my apartment without me going down to the lobby in the morning.
