Marsha, I would not suggest your incident did not happen, but I will insist
that it was not due to the book, rather, to the fact that the person was in
very poor health and climbing the stairs probably was the proverbial
straw. I am curious, just how much did the package weigh? One requirement
for a postal carrier, according to the web site, is to be able to lift 50
pound packages. If they are in such frail health that climbing stairs with
such a package kills them, something is vastly wrong with the system and
one wonders why they were not given lighter duties.
