Considering the fact that most mail is electronic these days, it is rare that the mailbox is still the social hub for neighbors. But in those rare chances, some people showed that the hilarious moments a simple misunderstanding at a mailbox can create.
While mowing his lawn one day, a man stood in his front yard. He watched his neighbor come out of his house and head straight for the mailbox, where he opened it, then slammed it shut, and stormed back into his house.
A few minutes later, the neighbor appeared again and headed for the mailbox. He opened it once again, then slammed it shut before angrily heading back to his house.

As the man finished up mowing his lawn, his neighbor appeared for the third time, and marched back to the mail and slammed it even harder. Puzzled by his actions, he asked his neighbor if something was to which the neighborreplied:
"There certainly is! My stupid computer keeps giving me a message saying, "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!"
After 30 years on the job a neighbourhood post man was set to retire. On his last day delivering mail, all of the people on his route left him a special gift in their mailboxes in honor of his retirement.
When he approached the last house, a woman stood in her doorway wearing nothing but lingerie and invited him in.
After they made love, she prepared dinner for him. Under his dinner plate was a dollar bill. Asking the women about the money under his plate, she explained:
"When I called my husband to tell ask him what we should give you for your retirement, he said, 'screw him, give him a dollar.' Dinner was my idea."
A man who had just come from collecting his mail was approached by a homeless who made a request, he said:
"Sir, I hate to bother you, but I haven't eaten in nearly two days. Is there any way you can find it in your heart to give me a dollar or two?"
Trying to be understanding to the man's plight, he tried to explain that all he had in his hands at the moment was "large bills." Willing to take anything, the homeless man gladly accepted the offer.
Going through the pile of mail he had in his hands, the man carefully sorted through it, pulled out a piece of paper, and handed the homeless his electricity bill.
