Neither Rain, Nor Sleet, Nor gloom of night - but wasps, yes!

A 250-home subdivision in Michigan had its mail service halted because a USPS mail carrier was constantly being attacked by wasps. Oceola Township was told, according to Jason Huntley, one of the residents: "They told me the whole subdivision wouldn't get mail until we changed the type of mailboxes we have."

"Our carrier has been stung repeatedly over the past week," Bob Peterson, facility safety coordinator for the Postal Service, told The Detroit News. "Her one arm was still twice the size of the other."

My question is: what does the type of box have to do with the wasps? Maybe a kind reader can inform us. Anyway, they compromised and hired an exterminator. Service was scheduled to resume today.
