I always wonder if the postman is reading my postcards. Do you do, too? Let's figure it out!

Send a postcard (naked) to your swap partner. Take a look at his profile to ensure you send something he likes.

Write a message - only for the postman, nothing else:

Dear Mr./Mrs. Postman,

please ring the bell when you deliver this postcard. You will get a little surprise.


Don't write the name of this swap (it is unique, your swap partner will surely identify this swap). :-)

If the postman really rings the bell, you know all your cards were read! :-O

Give him a little present - a tip, a lolly or a flower, that's totally up to you.

And let your swap partner in your rating know how the story ended ;-)

IMPORTANT: If you are not from the USA or UK, translate the message into your language and write it in the comments here, so that your swap partner can write it in your (and your postmans) language.

I live in Germany, please write:

Lieber Postbote,

bitte klingeln Sie mit dieser Karte, und Sie erhalten eine kleine Überraschung.

(If you can't read the umlaut - it's is an U with 2 dots above.)

A lot of people use a PO box . . . or are not home when their mail is delivered . . .

And I get mine in a community mail box so I never see my posture unless $ is due on my packages.

This one is for my Dutch colleague.......;-)

Lieve collega,

Gelieve even aan te bellen, er wacht je een kleine verrassing......

@Bhindblueeyes & thebragal Well, I know, this swap will not work for everyone. I feel a bit sad, for so many people human contact to the postmen got lost...

This would be so cute! I wish I could do it, but during the summer I'm only ever home for the mail on a Monday or Tuesday. Haha.

Mine would have to be, "please look inside the baggie on the mailbox." Haha.

I think this is great too but they come at random times here and I work a random schedule I rarely see them. It sounds really fun. I hope you all get responses :)
