GARDEN CITY Texas – Nothing has shown up in John McMaster’s Garden City mailbox since last month.
He has been waiting for credit card bills, medical records and Christmas packages to be delivered to their home on Ranch Road 33, near Angle Road, where United States Postal Service mail carriers have dropped off letters since his grandfather built the family ranch in 1900.
NewsWest 9 contacted the Garden City Postmaster and regional USPS representatives.
They had no comment, and could not confirm if delivery to other residences on Ranch Road 33 had also been halted.
“Only thing I can figure is [our mail carrier] doesn’t want to get his car dirty or he wants to cut a few miles off and get off [work] early,” said McMaster, who now drives about 18 miles to the Garden City Post Office to pick up his mail.
