Canada Post says it can't deliver mail to an Ottawa woman because her doorstep is 10 centimeters too high. Christine Charbonneau says she found a post office worker measuring her doorstep one day. He found it to be 30 centimeters high, 10 more than standards permit. Canada Post says she must reduce the size of the step to 20 centimeters or move her mailbox or it will cut off delivery. Charbonneau says her elderly mother-in-law and other delivery people regularly use the doorstep without any problem.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

If I caught a mailman measuring my front step, I'd kick him in the a$$.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.
