Helpful Mailman Reminding Everyone “It’s Not the Heat, It’s the Humidity”

Bethel, NY

Local mail carrier Charles “Chuck” Shandell took to the streets of Bethel this morning, maintaining an unflappably chipper demeanor even as the world around him was wilting under the stultifying July heat.

“It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity,” Chuck stressed to all the folks along his route, adding that he couldn’t wait to get home and make himself a nice, big bowl of beef stew.

It being 95 degrees outside with a dew point north of 70, most people could only nod and smile. But Dr. Blake Gallant at 23 Maple Lane knew something that most people didn’t: Chuck Shandell is a leprechaun.
