The Nightmare Continues!

Just when I thought I was moving on from the horror of an overturned mail truck a mile from the main post office, on the day after I mailed my DISH bill...I read about a NEW shocking discovery.

On Wednesday, Farmer H and I were headed home from a spontaneous trip to the casino when it happened. Thank the Gummi Mary we didn't drive past the accident scene! It was a little farther south of us.

We got home around 4:00 p.m., and at 4:30 when I fired up New Delly down in my dark basement lair, to read the day's news, I was greeted with a story that was posted at 4:00.

ORIGINAL STORY: First responders are responding [not one for synonyms, this writer] to a vehicle accident on [the main north/south interstate] near [Sis's Town/Bank Town]. The crash, involving a MAIL TRUCK running off [main north/south interstate] south of Fairgrounds Drive, slowed traffic on the northbound highway.

UPDATE: No one was injured in the accident involving the mail truck. First responders are still waiting on a tow truck.

There was even a picture of one of those white mail jeeps laying on its side down an embankment. Let the record show that no strewn-about mail was visible in the photo.

Still...I'm pretty sure I'll need to get online and pay my DISH bill by credit card this month.

What the heck is going on with your mail trucks? Have they hired incompetent drivers? Or are they being driven off the road deliberately by ne'er-do-wells?
I suggest contacting your Dish company and explaining the situation before paying online, that way they'll know what's going on and if your mailed check turns up they can tell you, you are now in credit since they've received two payments.

The Universe pulls out all the stops, just to mess with my DISH bill delivery! I have no idea how a mail truck can run off the side of the interstate. That area is straight as a board. No curves. I'm guessing the first one made a turn too fast and tipped over. They have a short wheel base, like a JEEP, so tip easier than a regular car or truck.
