Bed Bugs Stop Mail Delivery to Detroit Apartment Complex

News

"It's very wrong."

There is an obvious joke that you can't escape and that the Detroit News was quick to point out:

Rain, sleet, and snow can't stop postal carriers from completing their rounds -- but the fear of bedbugs has halted mail delivery to a senior citizen high-rise apartment building.

The local ABC affiliate  found that this decision, of course, is not popular with the buildings human residents.

Not getting mail can be a problem, especially when many residents are looking for those Social Security checks which arrive around the first of the month.

One additional factor involved -- the carrier who refused to deliver the mail is pregnant and seemed to be concerned over the chemicals being used to de-bug the building.

There is hope. Mail delivery is now said to resume by Friday.
