Mail Carrier Drops Off More Than A Package On Customer's Lawn

There is no way to say this delicately: A U.S. postal worker has been suspended from his mail carrying job after defecating on the lawn of a resident on his route. This is where all the jokes about dropping off packages and such come into play.

CNN (via KLTV)reports on the poo-happy mailman, who was spotted near a neighbor’s garage, dropping trou, by Don D. in Oregon while he was home with his son last week.

“I thought he had a bunch of packages for us,” he said, adding, “He started pulling his pants down and started defecating and at that point I grabbed my camera and started to take pictures.”

The postal service has responded, saying the carrier has been suspended.

“We’re taking this very seriously and I really want to apologize to our customers and to the public at large for the years I’ve worked for the postal service I’ve never heard of an incident like this and I hope I never do again,” said a rep.

One neighbor understands that when you gotta go, you gotta go, but that using private property as an outhouse is not the way to handle the situation.

“Nature calls at inopportune times..sometimes but geez go back to your rig and find a gas station or someone who will let you use their bathroom.”
