I Have Mail!

There are days where I am excited to look at what is in my mailbox, like when I am waiting for a rebate that will be mailed to me by the stores I bought. Or, when I am waiting for the cash back check, or waiting for the book I ordered, or waiting for a card from a friend. Though a lot of times checking my mailbox gives me pain as well when junk mails overcrowds my regular mail. However, these junk mails I could just not throw directly into the recycle because they may contain some of my very important information (oh, I really wonder why these bank companies offering credit cars have to do this ) that people can use for their fraudulent transactions. I carefully check each mail, regardless whether they are junk or not that they do not contain our important information. Also, with the mails just simply dumped in the mail boxes create some fear that some mails may be lost or stolen.

Thankfully, our community has residential mailboxes system that are well secured, operating almost like those of commercial mailboxes. Mailboxes are locked and if we go out of town for a long time, we just leave a note inside our mailbox for the post man that we will just pick up our mails in the post office when we get back. This practice has helped us having some peace of mind that all our mails will always be secured even when we are not around to get them. Checking our mail brings me both joy and headache, headache for all those junks that I still need to sort out and carefully shred, and joy, for those happy ones like a little congratulatory note from our school for a job well done, or cards from friends, which I would happily say to myself, "I've Got Mail!"
