Imagine going to reheat your morning coffee, opening the microwave, and finding a pile of mail inside. That’s what happens to this family every day when they go out to grab their mail. Their box is an old microwave! We love the dedication. Just think about it. Someone really took the time to source this old microwave and build a custom brick facade around it.
Putting mail into this unique mailbox absolutely has to be the highlight of the neighborhood mailperson’s route. Funnily enough, the genius behind this amazing box is allegedly an appliance repairman. So this idea is not only hilarious but a genius marketing ploy. He should have a slot next to the microwave for his business cards. Just sayin’.
Learn Your Lesson!
This is what happens when you think you've managed to design a relay cool mailbox, however, no thought was put into weather conditions or stray animals.
You might want to place your mailbox in a better place. Like in front of your house and not under a potential falling tree, maybe?
Ron the Lumberjack
We’ve got a big “Parks & Recreation” fan in the neighborhood! This person got crafty with their mailbox and created a lumberjack version of none other than Ron Swanson. Imagine seeing this in your neighborhood. What mailperson wouldn’t want to be greeted by Ron Swanson’s grumpy and gruff face every day?
This design is pretty clever. Whenever this mailbox owner has to raise the red flag on their box, it looks like Ron is holding up his lumberjack axe. When the flag is down, Ron is chopping away at the tree stump below. Hopefully, no one in the neighborhood plays with the red flag for fun. If they did, that could get confusing. Regardless, we can’t get enough of this!
Just Dump It In
The USPS delivers mail no matter what the weather conditions are like. Unless it’s a case of extreme weather, like a Category 5 hurricane, your mailperson will be there to deliver the mail. This homeowner is just as dedicated to receiving his mail. One winter, his box was completely buried under a pile of snow, and he was unable to dig it out.
What’s a guy to do? Out of desperation, he decided to improvise. He grabbed an old hockey stick and a bucket and got to work. This was the final result. Is it the most aesthetically pleasing mailbox we’ve ever seen? Not by a long shot. But does it get the job done? Absolutely. Necessity is the mother of invention, after all.
My Mailman's Name is Seuss
If you want to make this kind of mailbox, better do it while it's cold. This mailbox comes to us from outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado, where a family was a big enough fan of the good doctor – and skilled enough in shaping snow – to create something this large and intricate.
This mailbox might not be around for a long time, but it's sure to be a sight for sore eyes for the person who puts the mail inside the mouth. We also hope that it doesn't actually yell when you open the mouth. Then again...
