Yea, our bank of mailboxes is 2.5 miles from our house.  We got intoheated arguments with the Post Office because we didn't go down and emptyour box every day.  We finally got a P.O Box at a different (more convenient)Post Office.  Now we have to deal with folks who don't understand that ourmailing address and physical address are different.  :-/
It also infuriates me that *every* other shipper (UPS, FedEx) can deliverright to our door but USPS can't be bothered.
