Dead Letters

I had to think about this week’s Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction topic for a moment, Then I heard about a postal worker who was busted for not delivering the mail. Check out the fun with Charli Mills each week!

Ted nonchalantly punched in the access code and waited patiently for the arm to rise. The maze of storage units could be confusing but not to Ted, as he had been coming here nearly once a day for several months.

Without a care in the world, he began tossing the white plastic bins in left and right. Laughing, Ted thought about how much he hated everything about being a postal worker. The weather, the barking dogs, and he especially hated the mail! He hated it so much that he hadn’t delivered any in months, except to this storage unit.

  3. Oh, that’s so bad! Shame on Ted! There could be a plethora of news (good and bad) and information that people are not receiving. Good one, Annette! ❤ xo

  4. I think this must be a South African postal delivery man, Annette. We don’t get our mail for months. I have stopped using the local postal service entirely.
