Because Redneck Mailbox
Git the post down at the Home Depot, git a jar from the kitchin, git some of that there duck tape, and boom, redneck mailbox. In all seriousness, don’t use the duct tape and this here feller may be on to something. You can see if you have mail as you pull up, that’s an upside, the downside is so can everyone else. Another downside is there’s no door, which lets in weather, but without the door I don’t know if it’s technically stealing if someone takes your mail.
