I don't know about the rest of you but the post office is little more in our life than a subsidized means for business to send us things.
We probably get a couple pieces of personal mail a year other than greeting cards. If there's anything important to convey to a friend or realtive we pick up the telephone.
Why do we still have mail five days a week? Why not once a week? why at all? It all made sense at one time but in the era of 98% of households and businesses with telephones, high percentage of Internet use, the availabilty of all types of courieur services, etc. ?
We'll go away for a month and come back and there is 'nothing' in the mail of importance. zilch. I have a friend with one of those corner boxes and he checks it no more than once a week.
I don't expect the government to deliver our groceries, cable, laundry, etc, to the door. I don't need it to deliver bank statements and pizza flyers.
