NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WSMV) – An East Nashville woman said what started with her asking questions about missing mail escalated to threats from her postal carrier.
For months, Mamie Turner was used to finding an empty mailbox. She said mail went missing, including medication.
“I was hurting,” she said. “My blood pressure went up because I’m dealing with arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis. I have psoriasis and alopecia on my scalp. So, it itches all the time and so what am I supposed to do?”
But she said asking about missing mail with her carrier got ugly.
“She called me a ‘black B’ and then told me to kiss her black you know what and then said, ‘go tell your mayor that,’” said Turner.
