Default Re: U.S. Postal Service to stop Saturday mail deliveries

when was the last time anyone here has actually written a real letter on paper and mailed it out?? post cards dont count.

sh!t, some of you were born AFTER the internet, so maybe you never even wrote any real letter in your life.

the mail box is all f--king bills or ads.

So none of you think think the use of e-mail has anything to do with the lack of postal revenue?

It's easy to blame political ideology for it, but what about the fact that most of us no longer send our bills through the mail?

It says packages will still be delivered on Saturdays. Just not regular mail

That just frees up more money for the Military Industrial Complex. That $2 billion is about a week's worth of wars.

The military budget is already being cut drastically. Those 2 billion will go to Obamacare, which will cost a lot more than the annual Afghanistan war budget.

Its not entirely just email though, when you explicitly say we're going to make up for it by delivering letters faster, you've already ****ed up. They should have been striving to make their business run faster and more efficiently. Which obviously they believe they're capable of. I've lost one package in the last six months, and had another get delivered to a different address halfway across the state luckily the family there was nice enough to send it along my way.

There's a reason why ups and FedEx aren't struggling, not only are their packaging rates cheaper, theyre faster.ive used amazon prime since its inception and never had a package get lost, or delivered to the wrong place.

USPS flat rate prices are amazing and priority mail speed can't be beat, 2-3 days. Also if your item is 13 ounce or less, you can use first class mail package. Prices are only $2-3.

If you're shipping heavy items then UPS/Fedex would be better.

Bulk mail should be the same letter rate. Less junk mail.

We have never had Saturday or Sunday post as far as I can remember. The only post I ever get is bills, so having a 2 day break from that is a blessing.

It's like that mostly all over the world, it's just been an American tradition since the 1800s to get mail on Saturdays.
