The Postal Service reminds me of The Victoria Advocate.
The Postal Service states the poor economy and decline in mail has been at a great loss. In addition to reducing employees, the postal service has sought to deal with financial woes by raising rates and cutting services, such as a proposal to drop Saturday delivery. It has also talked about closing a number of post offices.What we have not heard is the elimination or reduction of Postmasters or higher ranking positions. A reduction of employees and a cut in staffing can only mean less Postmasters and supervisors needed, this is where alot of their money is lost.
I think the postal Service has done this to them selfs, they keep raising stamps so people started using Computers more and faxing, You can't depend on mail at times, We have a big problem where we live people are always getting someone else mail and it can be from another state not even in our town, maybe them mail reading machines aren't working for them like the talking telephone when you trying to get help you punch this and that maybe they should let real people sort the mail, This hasn't nothing to do with any one but there has to be a better system. Fine Close on Sat's but still have a mail pick up in town for people that needs to get things out. Means one day without bills.ha. And sending mail out of our town to another town and then back to our town because that where it suppose to go makes no sense to me why can't every town sort and keep there own mail here that cut some expense out. DUH
Don't forget, only pieces of cardboard tied to the bottom of his feet
Uphill both ways, I'm sure!
In the snow no less!
I just heard a mailman on the Nightly News say he worked a double shift today. He said he worked 9 hours. That may be part of the problem...
Reduce the number of days for home delivery to 3 per week ASAP. Raise bulk mail rates for what is an already dying industry. Slash the Postal Service to at least break even before consumer rates go even higher.
