5:15 pm, Mills Street

Mail carrier Tammy Dawson is still delivering mail at 5:15 p.m. Later than usual. But there were “some issues” today, she tells me.

First, there was the rain. Then, when she was at BP at Park and Vilas, a woman pulled her aside to ask for help with her credit card — it was a Chinese card and wasn’t working at the pump — and another woman wanted help with the certified letter she had mailed to Israel that was then returned.

“It’s been a day,” she says.
