I can top that: In 28 years I've spotted the neighbor lady getting her curbside mail on foot maybe three times. The rest of the time she's pulled up to the mailbox in her car. No, she's not disabled. Not that I know of.

Ha! Then there's the time I was out on a walk and I observed a woman pull into the entrance of her driveway and get out of her (running) car to fetch the mail. The car, not having any patience, proceeded to park itself in the garage without her. Damn lucky it didn't plow into the brand new pickup already in there! But it didn't stop until it hit the far wall. It was a SHORT DRIVEWAY. COME ON.
