Mr. Saver has been gentle suggesting to me that he was in fear of someone pinching his coveted red Netflix when they’re delivered, due to the small mailbox that “came” with the house. They would stick out, and forget about magazines and fliers — those went on the hooks underneath, out in the elements.
The pre-existing mailbox and the house numbers were both in a state, anyway — someone thought it would be a good idea to paint over them all to make them white. Were they so old that they didn’t come in white or plastic? Who knows. All I know is that the mailbox was a hunk of metal.
