Being a mailman isn’t an easy job. The famous, unofficial motto of the U.S. Postal Service is “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds,” and postal workers take that motto pretty seriously. Even as the delivery of personal correspondence has gone down thanks to the advent of email, the postal service still remains vital for the delivery of packages and other types of mail.
One of the age-old stereotypes about postal workers is that they don’t get a lot of love from animals. Just about every cartoon I ever watched growing up always had mailmen being chased by dogs. In real life, I haven’t seen that, but I have seen a mailman who is tormented by a bunch of angry wild turkeys every day – that was pretty crazy. Still, what this next postman has to deal with on a daily basis might be the funniest thing I’ve seen yet.
Along with snow and rain and heat, this guy needs to add “crazy cats” to his list of things that will not keep him from his duties. Apparently, the cat in this video does this every single day, so the mailman decided to tape it so that the world could see what he puts up with. A simple task like putting the mail through the door slot becomes an ordeal as this ferocious feline swipes and claws at anything that approaches the slot. I have to hand it to this guy though, he is a seriously good sport about it.
