A new experience: Mom showing me the new mailbox

Some time ago Canada Post installed new mailboxes in our building and these mailboxes are for us to pick up our larger parcels.  It helps us avoid having to go to the post office to pick them up.

I, for one, welcomed this move on the part of Canada Post.  It is more convenient and saves me having to walk to the post office to pick up stuff.

So what else did I need in order to take advantage of this new mailbox? Just Mom to show me where it was.  She helped me to count down and across in order to find the box.  Fortunately, all of the boxes are labeled with raised print so that it is even easier to find them.

This is how things work.  The post person deposits a key in our mailbox. The key is labeled with a raised letter and now all I have to do is to read the letter and then go and locate the matching mailbox.  Much easier and I thank Canada Post for this.
