The United States Post Office To Stop Delivering On Saturdays Starting This August

When I was born, a postage stamp cost $0.15 cents and as a kid, I remember when the price of a stamp was just a quarter. Not the case now, just this past month the cost to zip off a letter went up to $0.46 cents, but that’s not enough to get our ailing Post Office out of trouble. I’ve always loved getting mail on at least one weekend day (Saturdays), but come August, just like the Pony Express and cheap stamps, that too will start becoming a distant memory.


“The Postal Service is advancing an important new approach to delivery that reflects the strong growth of our package business and responds to the financial realities resulting from America’s changing mailing habits,” Donahoe said in a statement. “We developed this approach by working with our customers to understand their delivery needs and by identifying creative ways to generate significant cost savings.”


Apparently they lose $25 million a day, so on that logic alone I can get behind their decision, that and the fact that I am totally okay with getting more bills and junk mail a day later! So if it saves them money and me emotional aggravation and gives their carriers another day off to spend with their families, cool. The only thing I look forward to is getting packages of stuff I buy online anyway and we have been assured that that awesome service will continue (whew!) but for how long?

Now, if they could only do something about those pesky SPAM email messages that find their way into my email box every second!
