Remsenburg NY

So, I came across this sign Thursday and thought it was weird. I don’t understand the need for a caution sign before a post office, maybe before a pub or a nightclub, but a post office? There were signs on both the east and west sides of the road. Is the “caution” because of the unfounded reputation of postal workers? Or, are we to be cautious of drivers so emotional over the latest bill, or letter from Aunt Jane or whatever else that they just might pull out of the post office parking lot without looking for on-coming traffic?
I feel bad for our post office. They, like many other businesses are dealing with tough times. I’m sure with e-mail, cell phones and electronic bill paying their business will continue to dwindle.
Maybe then they’ll replace those signs with Caution Historic Site Ahead.
Happy holiday to everyone.
