    hmm, this is actually an interesting question

    Our mail comes mid-day (really, usually about 12:15 pm). When I was growing up it always came around 3. It just depends on where you are on the route. It'd be interesting to get mail at like 9 am. But 7:30 pm is a bit extreme, I agree.

    Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor dead of night will keep the mail from getting to gdbaby's house before 5:30 pm.

    My mail carrier likes to take my mail on a tour of my neighborhood before he gives it to me.... and then, after he has deposited my mail in my mailbox and disappeared off into the night, yes I said NIGHT! What is this? He reappears to insert a few straggling pieces of my mail that must have just escaped his field of view the first time around...he does this regularly! Moreover, sometimes more than once...I have one word.... SCARY!

    DoesnÂ’t this guy sort any of this stuff BEFORE getting in his truck? And the way my neighborhood is set up all the streets have the same house numbers in the same spots, just different names, so the people on the very end of the west side of every street have my house numberÂ…. WHO IS GETTING MY INTERVIEW INVITES? The 90-year-old lady two blocks down from me? :scared: :eek: :mad:

    Interesting question. Mine usually comes around 2:30 in the afternoon and everything is fine until Saturdays. On Saturdays, the guy sometimes comes after 7:30 pm. 7:30 pm I said. Can you believe this? And it's a different guy! What is going on? This is crazy. 7:30 PM. It's completely dark.

    haha, wow that is scary....let's hope he doesn't single you out for personal reasons..... :scared: x 100

    i live in a loft above a clothes hanger manufacturer and an industrial remodeling company....owned by a consulting firm that specializes in bio-remediation.....anyways, tmi....we get our mail between 10-11am...but i leave for my lab before the guy gets here and come home after the company closes....so i get the previous day's mail when the rooster crows (if we had a rooster).

    I am redefining mail as any medical school information, not including Caribbean podiatry schools. With my new definition, the mail never comes.

    Mine comes at 4:30 pm. Not that it matters; I havent received any invites via snail mail, they've all been emails. Although I would happily accept a snail mail invite! (hint, hint: Tufts, OHSU! Hurry up already!)

    It's a different guy because the weekday mailman probably takes Saturdays off. The replacement probably has his own mail route to deliver and then takes your mail afterwards.
    My mailwoman is pretty good at getting the mail to my place before 3:00. Not that I would know because I'm not there when she delivers it.... My mailbox has this little yellow flag on the door that tells me gets pulled up if it's been opened. Once I get my mail I just flip it back down. I didn't think of it, but I can buy with the best of 'em. It's really clever and I've always wondered why other people don't have one.
