Will you miss Saturday delivery of US mail?

PassionateLover2 PassionateLover2
I seems that the US postal service will no longer deliver first class mail on Saturday, starting August 1, 2013. This is in the financial interest and survivor-ability of the government agency. Will this decision be an inconvenience to you?

Not an issue at all. They could deliver mail 3x/week and that would work fine for me.

Yes, you are right about packages, but first class mail is what they will NOT deliver!

Sorry to hear this news! I voted "other" though because this change doesn't affect me. I'm in Canada and we don't get mail here on Saturdays anyway lol.

It probably wont be that bad. But I guess it depends on how badly you want your bills.

It'll be an inconvenience, but I'll live. The USPS is antiquated anyway and will eventually be a thing of the past.

Yes, I'll miss it.

In the interest of a reality-based discussion, this is a completely artificial crisis. The USPS doesn't cost taxpayers ANYTHING. But in 2006, Congress passed a law requiring the postal service to pre-fund its pension fund 75 years ahead — what other agency, public or private, does that? Congress did it to make their own books look better, not in an honest effort to help the USPS. This is KILLING the USPS. At the time, the postal service was already overfunding its retirement obligations and had in fact asked, repeatedly, for congressional RELIEF to prevent the problem we're now seeing. Read all about it.

So yeah, I'll miss Saturday delivery and I hope I'm not the only one who'll remember this nonsense when the next congressional elections roll around.

@ spiced, Exactly!! Thanks for alerting all the people who had no idea. I appreciate that you included a link to make it easy. (I remember the huge profits for the Post Office that Congress TOOK away, too. Congress is full of spoiled brats & needs some shaking up! Oh, let me add, IMHO )
