LOL! So not very funny...
Ex-mail carrier accused of putting mail in storage
Sep 30th, 2008 | DETROIT -- It's like a scene out of "Seinfeld." Federal investigators say they've recovered more than 9,000 pieces of mail from a storage unit in Fowlerville, about 65 miles northwest of Detroit.
Court documents said Jill Hull admitted storing the mail because she couldn't deliver it on time. Some mail has postmarks from 2005.
Hull worked for the Postal Service in the Howell area for 3 1/2 years. She quit in August, about three weeks before the mail was discovered.
She's charged in federal court in Detroit with stealing mail.
A phone number listed for Hull was disconnected.
In a 1996 episode of "Seinfeld," Newman (Wayne Knight) stored mail in Jerry Seinfeld's storage unit instead of delivering it.
