The Obvious

Three Mailboxes

I was on my way to work recently for a stressful job interview, but I decided to take a different route so that I could see when the golf course might be opening. As I drove past the course and down the hill, my eye fell upon three mailboxes all lined along the road waiting for the mailman to deliver to them. I could see, however, that the mailman would no longer be delivering, as the homes on this land were gone. A sign said that the large earthmovers there were preparing the land for new homes.
