World Briefing / AND FINALLY . . .

Your petty letters or my time . . .

September 10, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

A postman in Frankfurt, Germany, hoarded at least 20,000 letters at home because he thought his work was too taxing, police said.

A neighbor saw him tipping mail into a rubbish bin and alerted police.

"It's worth mentioning the 23-year-old didn't deliver mail addressed to himself, either," local police said in a statement.

He told police he got behind because of night school and felt too "overtaxed" to catch up.
