“It wouldn’t be a major hardship. I’d just be disappointed.”

“It would put ultimately no hardship on me because the post office has never been able to find my mailbox at home routinely, so I have had to have a P.O. box ever since I moved to the address.”

“It would put a strain on stuff. Nothing big or important, but it’s definitely something that would cause a real kink in my schedule.”

“No, I don’t think so. I don’t think that businesswise one less day of mail delivery would have a serious impact.”

a strain of stuff one guy says, nothing big, what stuff, the hardship will be when the post office then decides to raise the postage again and cut delivery hours again.They are liars.

Hey, who has had the (zedo cookie) pop-up ads that started yesterday.I'm only finding a few comments. I'm curious if it was a site wide issue, or if some people looked at the same link from here and got it.I got rid of mine with Spy Sweeper.

home business needs mail delivery.with growth of the internet biz this is important. signature is required on many documents and not everything is done with a 'e - transaction'.

Culligan man..ROFL!There was no mail in my box today, and it's been a few since I checked.Can I get a refund or something?Seriously, in my old neighborhood, my male neighbor and I both decided that picking up our mail was only necessary about once a week.

No, it would be no hardship to miss Saturday mail delivery. It is long past time to stop Saturday deliveries.

I live in the country and I think that the post office doesn't deliver to our house half the time anyway on Saturdays. You know, people that live in the country don't need their mail as much as people in the city do! But I'm not bitter about it or anything.

Once or twice a week would be fine with me.

Saturday may not be the day they cut, Tuesday is an option, which I hope the do not pursue. That could potentially screw with my Bacon of The Month Club deliveries.

If you said yes you need to throw away or beta machine, eight track tapes, and remote control with wire and wake up to modern society. The mail on saturday does not benefit anybody. Anything that goes out on saturday just sits in the post office unitl monday and business are closed so they are not going to process your payment on saturday anyway.

It is my hope that they would use a Dada philosophy for establishing delivery dates.But there are too many sitting by the PO box today waiting for the mailman with the check that has the Statute of Liberty on it who would be royally chapped.

jonas,What about Netflix® deliveries?Alas, there is great difficulty it is hard to strike a balance betwixt observance of the shabbat with modern life.

Ultimately no, but it is nice to get a mailing out on saturday once in awhile. Mostly for that last minute forgotten or procrastinated about bill or card.
