Since that incident happened, I've been wondering-- is this not common knowledge, i.e., that you can put outgoing mail in your own mailbox and put the flag up, or clip the outgoing piece to the letter slot cover, and the postal worker will pick it up and take it to the post office for you?
That's exactly what I have always thought. But when I lived in Los Angeles, I had one postal worker claim he wasn't supposed to pick up mail at a residence; he would only do it for me to be nice. Perhaps he was just a disgruntled postal worker who was on his way to a breakdown.
