On How do you feel about the U.S. Postal Service’s decision not to deliver mail on Saturday?

I was in favor of eliminating Saturday delivery, to save them money. When I read today that no lay offs are planned at the post office, I guess they will save money by not paying the salaries on Saturday. I am sick of them whining about how broke they are, and raising the cost of stamps every time I turn around. I hope this helps them financially. I live near a small town, they just cut our post office hours from 8 hours a day, to four. I get my mail at a box, which they charge me $ 100 a year for. I think they waste tons of money, like TV ads, etc. I wish they were run by the government again, that way our senators and representatives could help with complaints. Much of our mail arrives torn up, especially magazines and catalogs. Extremely poor service, yet they are still going broke. I would support their cause more if they took better of my mail

Well, I am sixty-seven, is that old, and I receive my bills electronically and pay them that way. The family texts, e-mails, tweets, uses face book and skype and we all have web cams. We are so connected.

I can't even imagine using the mail any more than I can using a land line. Okay, I think this is so cool. Smart phones have GPS so you can put in where you are now and your destination and then you prop the phone where you can see it and look at a map that follows you as you move. A woman will tell you what turnoff on the turnpike to take, when to go left or right. I have to admit I love it.

Perplexed and vulnerable, yet reassured and liberated.

As the usps keeps cutting back it's services it makes you wonder how ups and fedex will hold up. Whenever a delivery is not feasible for them they send it Usps.

They both send about 20% of their packages via usps.

That funding of 75 years worth of pensions over 10 years was a pretty smart idea.

"The Post Office actually has made $700 million in the last four years. It is the $5 billion in health-care prepayments, something that other government agencies are not required to do, that is the source of the problem."

If it saves money, fine. Those bills will keep until Monday.

"Asked at U.S. Post Office, 645 Vermont St...." “ I don’t get mail, so it doesn’t really affect me.” — Carlos Munoz, student, Garden City
