it's so comforting to know how safe our mail delivery system is :) 
i actually had a postal jeep not too long ago. very cute vehical to have
and fun to drive around in. ironically enough, i had the key for that
vehical on the same ring as the mg key which i lost. after hotwiring it
for sometime (which is not at all hard to do) i was desparate to have a
key again. in a desparate attempt to find something that would work, i
tried several keys i had and found the key to my "U" shaped bike lock
actually worked in the ignition and drivers side door(right side) but
oddly enough, not in the parcel door on the left. strange. i just
assumed the tumblers were so worn out that it would accept just about
any key.
