A man who carries and delivers mail. Also called postman .
- The gender-neutral letter carrier is sometimes preferred.
- There's no waiting on the mailman to deliver your favorite author's latest tome and you'll no longer have to face the holiday crush at your local bookstore.
- Thus, dogs become believable superheroes, pirates, chefs and their nemesis - the mailman.
- Animated Christmas cards are no longer a novelty, so don't be surprised if in a few years you start seeing the mailman less and less around the holidays.
