    Well, I didn't get hit, but you can say that my mailbox is an extension of me. So I did get hit.

    Let me set the stage: I live at the end of a cul de sac of a farely wealthy area, my next door neighbors to one side own a couple car dealerships, and to the other side own a large real-estate firm. The school bus for Emmerton Elementary comes down my street every day, drops off a neighbor kid, then turns around. I'm always worried about getting a car hit, so I never ever park in the street, especially since amerika is land of the hit and run.

    Well, today it turned around, backed up, and went right into my mailbox. It left yellow paint and everything. I didn't see it happen, because I was inside, on the other side of the house. One of my neighbors alerted me to this, after I went outside. The driver didn't leave a note or anything. Classy, eh?

    Supposedly I call the school board, and they come out and fix it. I don't see how they're going to fix it, considering the damage to the foundation, so. It looks like I get to decide on a new mailbox.

    I don't know what's worse.

    The fact that you put up a misleading title or the fact that I was expecting to hear a story about you being in a wheelchair...

    In either case...

    It's probably because you're on comcast.

    your mailbox is better built (even after the bus attack) than the last three places i lived in. :D

    stick it to the schoolboard. that bus driver doesn't need a damn job. was probably drinking and a danger to the kids. it coulda been a person, not a mailbox. or even worse, a honda. :rolleyes:

    This is precisely why I don't leave the house often.

    And why I don't park in the street.

    you don't leave your house often to protect your mailbox or to be safe from busses? ;)

    i'd bet money the bus driver didn't even feel it happen
    not saying they're not responsible, but i'm not suprised there's no note
