These Post Office Workers Prove That Rain And Snow Are The Least Of Their Problems

Whenever you order a new vacuum from Amazon, or mail in your utilities check, somebody has to make sure that stuff gets from point A to point B. Somebody is responsible for making sure that your Christmas presents get delivered on time.

As far as I’m concerned, postal service workers are more special than Santa Claus. They work harder, they play harder, and they have a better sense of humor. Keep reading to see some of the best mailmen and mailwomen in America. They always know how to brighten your dog’s day or keep your mail out of harm’s way.

This is actually brilliant. I wish my mailman knew how to hide packages like this. Granted, I live in an apartment building, so there isn’t really anywhere to hide giant packages, but I’m sure this mailman would find a way.

The fakeout envelope by the door is just the icing on the cake.

Salami is definitely the way to this St. Bernard’s heart. Give him one taste, and he’ll wait by the window for you forever.

This is exactly how I look when I’m waiting for my Amazon order to arrive. If only all Amazon orders came with salami sandwiches.

Happy Retirement, Mailman!

This mailman left retirement notes under every door in his neighborhood. Forty-three years is a really long time. I don’t know how they’re going to carry on without him.

Happy retirement, Maurice! Hope you’re having fun not delivering mail anymore! This guy is going to make me cry, and I don’t even know him.

Merry Christmas To All, And To All A Good Mail

Yo, Carlos, Waddup! This mailman is the bee’s knees. I love that he took Christmas photos in uniform, holding a mailbag.

I want this guy to bring me all my Christmas presents. Forget Santa, I want Carlos. I hope this guy got lots of Christmas tips.

Another year, another Christmas card. Carlos never disappoints. Is it just me or is the 2011 picture a lot more… sultry?

Like, damn, Carlos is lookin’ fine. I hope he knows he has to make a Christmas card like this every year now.

A Little Something For Sadie

This pupper is being so good not eating that treat right away. She knows she has to wait for a picture so the internet can share in her joy and excitement.

Dogs deserve to get excited about mail too. All good mailmen and mailwomen know this.

Come Hell Or High Water

…Or a crazy snowstorm, apparently. People need to get their Christmas gifts in time, and no blizzard is going to keep this mailman from doing what he does best.

This is the most hardcore mailman— nay, person— I’ve ever seen. Mailmen don’t get recognized for their hard work enough. I see you, mailmen. I see you.

The Nicest Mailman In The Land

First of all, can we talk about that beautiful penmanship? Like, how does he get off having such gorgeous handwriting?

Also, this is so sweet. Mailmen are the greatest. They deliver letters and packages straight to our doors… I know that’s their job, but I just appreciate it so much.

Thanks, Amazon Guy

This is the definition of going above and beyond. Getting those mail slips that say you have to pick up your package the next day is the worst.

This Amazon guy knows the feeling. That’s why he knew he had to get sneaky. Keep reading to see a mailman who made a Christmas card that might even rival Carlos’.

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

That’s an actual quote from Greek literature that describes the Persian empires courier service. The Greeks understood. Mailmen are the greatest.

Mailmen and mailwomen, mailpeople, if you will, have to put up with a lot of annoying stuff. We’ve seen them trudge through snowstorms, dodge excitable pups, and evade thieves of all sorts.

This has got to be the most annoying task of them all. Nobody likes to bend down.

Give This Guy A Raise

Somebody put this guy in a United States Postal Service ad campaign. Seriously, so many more people would choose snail mail over e-mail if they knew it was going to be delivered by this handsome devil.

This is so much more than we deserve, but I’m not mad at it.

This man deserves a very nice Christmas bonus. Not only did he deliver that package in what looks like four feet of snow, but he also made very sure that the package did not come in contact with the snow, even though it didn’t fit in the mailbox.

That is some smart thinking.

Cats Like Watching For The Mailman Too

What do you think they’re waiting for? A few cans of tuna? A new scratching post? The remains of a mouse their friend Buster from down the street just had to show them?

These cat’s know what life is all about: getting stuff you paid for a little while after you paid for it.

I support the “Give the mailman some guava” initiative. Guava is delicious. This mailman delivers packages day in and day out. The least we could do to support him would be to feed him some tart green fruit.

He asked so nicely, too. I love this so much.

It Just Keeps Getting Better

Oh, my goodness. He wanted the guavas for his pregnant wife. When your pregnant wife craves guava, you’ve got to get her those guavas by any means necessary.

She doesn’t even care if they’re not ripe yet. Not only is this guy a great mailman, he’s also a great husband. He’s going to be the best dad ever.

Thanks For Your Service, Rudy!

This is Rudy Tempesta. He has been working for the US Postal Service for 65 years, which not only makes him the longest-serving USPS employee in the country but the longest-serving public servant in the country.

The guy in this photo asked him when he was gonna stop. He said, “When I’m in a box.”

Dogs Aren’t The Only Animals Excited To Meet The Mailman

Hey now brown cow! That cow is so small and cute. I want to hug it immediately. I’m actually very jealous of the mailman who got to give that cute cow a treat.

What do you think he ordered? More grass? A nicer jacket?

As If You Really Needed Any More Proof That Mailmen Are The Greatest

A week ago, This person’s dog, Oliver, had a stomach bug and couldn’t eat his regular food. Usually, the mailman throws him a treat every day, but Ollie’s owners told him to hold off for a bit until the sick pup was feeling better.

Then they found this note in their mailbox.

This Kid Thought Mailmen Should Get Mail Too

This is actually so sweet. I especially love the way he spelled “sincerely.” That’s what makes it the most sincere.

It’s nice that there are kids out there who appreciate postal workers. We could all learn a thing or two from Olivier.
