The Mail Boat

Lake Geneva, Wisconsin (pop. 7,148) is a popular tourist attraction in southern Wisconsin, and probably the most fun thing to do is ride the mail boat tour. It travels along the shoreline for 2 reasons: to see the mansions built along the lake and to deliver their mail. As the boat nears a dock, but never stops, the mail person jumps off the front of the boat, puts the mail in the box and then a jumps back on the back of the boat. Everyone always waits to see them miss the boat and fall in the water. It happens but not very often.
