She's 61, lives alone, weighs 90 poinds dripping wet and comes in at 4'9.....since I doubt she was brandishing a knife, leave the lady alone and try making the postal carriers start diong their jobs and delivering the correct mail to the correct address. Cut her some slack until you've walked in her shoes!

I have had many dealings with this gal working at walt's. While I do feel sorry for her, we cannot give her license to harass people. We all have problems. Stop justifying her behavior.

This mail carrier may have been caught off guard with this woman trying to get her attention. I always know when she is coming as I usually hear her talking loudly on her phone when she is coming from the neighbors. I think she talks as she walks all the time on her bluetooth. Maybe it's a second job - who knows but it is a daily occurance. I'm not sure why else this africian american women would be scared of a white 4'9' person, then again, why take customer complaints when you can get someone arrested - I'm sure she never delivers the wrong mail to anyones house - not.
