Why is there a bar code scan thing in my mailbox?
A few months back the post office put a little sticker in my mailbox. It has a bar code, my address, and some numbers (I think). Everytime one of the many mail delivery people that works in my area drops off my mail, they get out a electronic scanner thingy. At first I figured that it was for keeping track of the mail-people and how fast they do their routes or something like that. But today I happened to notice that the mailman didn't scan anything at my neighbors house. Being the highly trained DU skeptic/cynic that I am...conspiracy theories started poking into my thought process! That and I'm just curious.

Anybody have any ideas?

1. Why don't you ask your mail carrier about it?

3. Damage it and see what happens
Or if you are the less confrontational type, just ask your mail carrier.
