Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat …

Dear Editor,
The postal pledge dating back to Herodotus (484-425 B.C.)
states:

Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat nor gloom of night stays these
Couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.

Dear Editor,

The postal pledge dating back to Herodotus (484-425 B.C.) states: “Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat nor gloom of night stays these Couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

What’s the use of having a postal pledge if you can’t take 15 seconds out of your busy work schedule to deliver mail? This sounds like a cop out from Newman from Seinfeld, or Cliff Clavin from Cheers. What if someone who does not know the schedule of the mail carrier parks on front of a mail box, such as an out-of-city family member? This is interfering with people’s livelihood.
