MESQUITE, Texas (CBS11) – Residents in a southwest Mesquite neighborhood are furious after finding hundreds of pieces of mail in a gutter.
Brenda Tisdale was walking her dogs when she noticed a few clean, white pieces of paper in the drain.
“I was thinking, ‘that’s where all of our mail has gone,’” said Tisdale.
She said she found hundreds of sealed envelopes of undelivered mail teetering toward the sewer. There were stacks of new mail and some were still rubber-banded in groups.
“It would have went on down to the river,” said Tisdale. “Nobody would have ever known.” CBS Dallas Fort Worth
