Who mails anything?
Amazon... shit comes faster by mail then say UPS ground.
When are they just going to go private?
Need to start somewhere to stop the bleeding.
This should have been done years ago.
They are not really open on Saturdays here..3 hours window use, 5 hour access to mailboxes. I think I am at the edge of the people that still do stuff by mail because it seems more secure...and the Federal Government fucking abuses the shit out of the mail...IRS, FBI, and Homeland Security do not pay for postage..I don't know about other aspects. When I had my background checks..I got a buttload of unnecessary mail from them, including adverts.
Fucks given tally: 0 and holding steady
I use USPS to ship packages
our PO is open 9am to 1pm on saturdays
24/7 access to PO boxes
Not no more ya dont.
They lock the post office doors at 4 Pm here...used to be 8Pm. Weekdays.
They never lock the doors to our
post office. If you have a box it's always
They just shutter the counter when closed.
Maybe you can find a nice mail-order correspondence course to improve your comprehension.
I used to live in another town near here and they kept the doors unlocked until bums started living there
so they would lock up from 6pm to 7am for a few months then back to 24/7 open when they figured the bums were gone
should have just shot the bums and let us humans have our mail access
Why do you hate fun?
Au contraire. I have a lot of fun pointing out stuff like that.
I don't really have a problem with this. As long as I still get Saturday packages and have access to a post office if I need to ship or mail something on those Saturdays. My bills and junk mail can wait until Monday.
I didn't read the story at all actually. I heard it in the background while eating lunch at work.
Well, that's a solid defense. What an idiot I feel like now...
I spoke to the post master here..he says we can opt to have home delivery of the mail for free, rather than pay for post boxes. It will just take an extra 3-4 days to get our mail.
I read somewhere that the USPS pension had to be prepaid for the next 75 years. Who is running the USPS, the NYC MTA?
You spoke to Stig ?
I pardon you.
The issue is that the USPS is controlled by congress, and unions. Look at the unbelievable benefit payments (How many companies have to pre-fund healthcare obligations 75 years in advance, and do it in 10 years (rule instituted in 2006 by congress) and the fact that they have to approach congress to change and adapt to the business.
One thing to do would be to make the postage rates obscene for junk mailers. I think privatizing would bring prices up to UPS/Fedex, but they'd strain under the demand for that type of service the way they're structured and fucked in the ass now.
I could care less for Saturday delivery. Mail or packages, work related or not. However, they shouldn't be raising rates while decreasing service. That's a major red flag that's ignored too often in government run services.
