Giving mail to the 3 year old?!?! Who trained you?

The substitute mail carrier just knocked on my door, and handed my 3 year old the mail when she stepped outside.
DD is in a time out, but wtf?!? Who gives mail to a 3 year old? There was a check in the pile that I have been waiting for.

***edited to add: DD had never opened the door before, and I was in the bathroom. This isn't bad parenting, it is life with small children. That aside, I called down to the post office. The guy is in major trouble. He didn't bother looking for my mailbox, which is located 5 feet from my front door. The postmaster is pissed that he gave mail to a small child instead of putting in the box.***

I would assume when your 3 yr old answered the door the mail carrier may have thought you told her to get the mail.

Our mailman gives my son the mail if he's out in the front yard. But Jim's a cool guy and he knows I don't care. All we get is junk mail anyhow.

I don't generally trust DD with $2,000 checks!

Why would a 3 year old be answering the door? If you were right there, then I dont see the issue.

This. Hell the UPS guy once let my oldest (3 or 4 at the time) "sign" for his birthday package.
