The bottom line is that if you hit the mail box and caused it damage,
then you should pay for the repair.
You did the right thing by addressing the problem and owning up to it.
I fail to see why you are so upset.
I don't believe that the individual was even dishonest and his occupation has
little to do with any of the above.

says that you are blaming someone else for your accident.
Come to Massachusetts some time. Here, you would have had to replace the box,
the pole AND the concrete pad otherwise you would end up in small claims
court with a $1500 bill against you.
I knowq it s frustrating, but I see that all sides came to terms with the
problem and it was resolved.... congrats
