rats! today my mailbox was bashed. I was working from my home office around lunch time, heard a 'bash' and then a car pealing out... I live near a high school and while I did not see it happen as the room I was in faces the other way, it was the time of day when they leave for lunch, in fact, while I am not on the "main route" a trail of cars goes by everyday at this time (though I will point out that I have lived here for over 4 years and this is the first incidence).
so I can take this in stride. ha ha. I seek no recourse, but I really dont want this to become an epidemic (i.e. an 'I put it up, they bash it down' cycle).
the mailbox if actually fine, it bent back straight, and it is stable, but I removed it for now (mail was dropped in the carport today). my questions: 1) have you ever had this problem and 2) should I put the mail box back in the same spot, move it, turn it "sideways", etc. I dont want to do anything enticing, to attract more bashes. because what if it happened while I was out of town? I just dont like it.
what would you do?
