Wisconsin – A U.S. Postal Service carrier said he felt bad and stupid after being arrested for delivering mail to a law firm in Whitefish Bay while buck naked. David A. Goodman, 52, said he was only trying to cheer up a 21-year-old female employee of the law firm who had “seemed to be stressed out” when he made his first delivery to the office…The employee told officers that when “Mailman Dave” arrived at the office about 1 p.m. to make the regular delivery, she mentioned that she still had to pick up the law firm’s mail from its post office box. She said Goodman left but returned about 10 minutes later and knocked on the door. After the woman opened the door, Goodman entered the office, where, “she was shocked to see that he was naked.” “The woman turned away from Goodman, held out her hand and said, “Give me the mail and get out of here.” Goodman immediately began to apologize before leaving the office… Goodman was arrested a short time later at the North Shore Post Office and taken to the police station. There, the police report states, he admitted making the naked mail delivery and said he was only trying to cheer up the woman and make her laugh. “He stated that he took off his clothes, laid them next to the doorway and knocked on the door,” the report says. “After (the woman) let him in, he could immediately see that he had upset her and immediately felt bad and stupid. He apologized, left the office and got dressed,” the report states.
I have to admit the second I read the title to this article and saw the "Wisconsin" location stamp on it I let out a heavy sigh and thought Sheboygan was about to put another notch in the ol' bizarre story belt. I mean if someone walked up to me and told me to guess a city in Wisconsin where a 52 year old postal employee delivered a package (no pun intended but totally intended) in the nude to a 21 year old law firm employee I would have picked Sheboygan 100 times out of 100. But this time I'd be wrong! Whitefish Bay has just entered their hat into the classless story power rankings folks. I don't think they'll be challenging us anytime in the crazy story BCS standings, but this is a head turning win. You've got inappropriate nudity, with a side of sexism and a dash of big age difference. This would be like a late season win over an Big Ten school that gets people talking about your squad. Sheboygan's body of work is like Auburn's in the SEC though. Week in week out we bring the fastball.
In terms of the story itself this just seems like a simple miscommunication. I mean you try and lighten the mood by delivering mail naked in an office setting just ONE TIME and everyone's got to make a big deal of it. Like whatever happened to three strikes and you're out? This is America right? And I don't see anything in the Constitution that says you CAN'T deliver mail in the nude. You think Thomas Jefferson made a big deal of it when George Washington decided to lighten the mood with a little birthday suit mail drop? Pfft. Chalk this one up a sign of the times.
PS: If David Goodman doesn't steal a Costanzaism in his questioning I will be severely disappointed. This has "Was that wrong? Should I not have done that? I tell ya, I gotta plead ignorance on this because if anyone had said anything to me at all when I first started here that that sort of thing was frowned upon...cause I have worked at a lot of offices and people do that all the time" written all over it. Socrates. Plato. Costanza.
