trying not to advertise where I sleep

In the heart of Anytown I happened to see a sign advertising mailboxes for $13/month, so I went in, as my old mailbox on Market Street is less convenient now than in 1997 when I was nearby every day.

“The person who rents out the mailboxes won’t be in until tomorrow. Meanwhile let’s see if I can find you the forms . . . . You’ll need proof of residency in Anytown. Yeah, the Post Office requires it.”

Damn. That’s new. My terrorist cell will be so disappointed.

How do you get mail if you have no fixed address? What if you sleep elsewhere but spend the day in Anytown? What if you’re about to move to Anytown but don’t yet know exactly where you’ll be living?

Cui bono?
