    The way we sort mail now there's no need for 2 deliveries per day.

    However, universal service is still the standard, the Postal Service, unlike UPS and FEDEX is not allowed to pick and choose who gets what level of service.

    Well, as slow as the mail delivery already is, I might have to resort in paying on line. My gas and telephone bills both went out on the first. That means they really didn't get into the mail system until the 4th. Here it is the 11th and neither of them have shown up. My telephone bill is usually the first one I get every month.
    The electricity and water bills have both come so what has the post office done with my gas and telephone bills?

    Gee, I can hardly wait for the service to get sloooooowwwwweeeeerrrrrr!!!!! And to think we are getting to pay more for this!!!!!!!
    No matter what anyone does, someone some where will be offended some how!!!!

    The AD at my son's school works for the USPS, and has for years. To him, it is just not a big deal, at all. He also doesn't really think it will go into effect.

    I still insist we will all survive. Heck, I don't mail much personal mail anymore, and even business mail is about 45% email generated. Saves trees.

    It could be that the Post Office has delivered your check, but the gas and phone companies have not yet processed them. Usually the payments are sent in to a separate division - or sometimes even a whole separate company - that processes and logs them in in their own time, so you cannot blame the USPS for that!

    Okay, so let's run an equivalent experiment, after all, the Constitution is old and outdated.....


    Let's give people in some cities (second tier cities, like Worcester,MA, Akron, Ohio, etc..) Different freedom of speech rights than those in LA and New York.

    That's fair, right? No big deal? After all, it probably wouldn't affect YOU.

    the offices themselves will still be open on Saturdays so at least I'll still be able to drop packages off and buy stamps and stuff.

    Totally unhinged?

    How so?

    Both are Constitutional mandates.

    If you don't think mail delivery is a necessity any longer, amend the document and delete the offending passage. The process exists, it has been done before, but you don't just ignore a part of the Constitution because it is a personal inconvenience.

    If you think that's bad, don't you ever use the words ASSAULT and WEAPON in the same sentence. Total meltdown. LOL.

    Liz, unless you have something constructive to add to the discussion at hand? GTHO.

    I really gave you more credit than to stoop to Sara's BS. Evidently I was wrong.

    It wasn't the payments I sent. I've never received the bills so I can pay them. OOPS!!! Correction, the telephone bill just came!!! Took it 13 days to get here. If it takes that long for my payment to get back to them, I'll owe a late fee. Still no sign of the gas bill.

    MoFf, call your congressman and the utility companies and let them know.

    They are paying for 1st class mail, which is supposed to be 2-3 day delivery. If that isn't happening, they need to hear about it.

    The utility companies are going to understand, as they are going to be getting more and more late payments due to Postal Management's outright fraud.

    Congress needs to hear about it as well, as they have oversight of the Postal Service.
