I have a cousin that works for the P.O. and is a supervisor, he says they waste so much that it is unbelievable. Also if a union worker does not produce, they cannot get rid of him. I think the I could live without the Sat. delivery, but the unions shot that down too.
Our postman cannot even read or put the mail in the box, I have found it in the ditch, other people get my mail, and I get other peoples mail and complaining does no good what-so-ever. I just got a package, the postal worker said he stopped but I was not home, I was in the front yard working all morning and saw him go by, I still had to drive to the post office on Monday to get the package.
I think it is and will price themselves out of existence eventually as most things can be done over the Internet now anyway.
