A stunning victory for lemur68!

Voting late in the Poll, lemur68 had the most accurate prediction as to the answer to:

"The Postman always_______ twice".

lemur wins with his answer "has to take the civil service exam".

First night I was there, as we took the dog for a walk, I asked RC about his college days and how he became a postman. The upshot was that after a long hiring freeze before or during the Nixon (!) era, lots of postal jobs became available at once, and they were giving the test constantly. He mentioned having to retake it to get a qualifying score.

lemur, I think Miss Cleo's job is open...you seem to have The Gift.
