Postal Service to Cut Saturday Mail

Looks like the rumors were true…

 

In an effort to cut costs, your postal service men and women will be delivering to you five days a week.

 

If you have a PO Box, packages can still be delivered on Saturday.

 

The new plan will take effect in August.

 

My first thought was for the people working in the postal service, who most likely will have a cut in pay.

 

Then again, in a world of digital technology, most of my ‘snail mail’ is junk mail anyways.  Often, I find myself throwing away a lot of my mail.  I honestly can’t remember the last time I wrote a letter to someone, which is quite sad.

 

Then again, you can look at it this way, according to The Press of Atlantic City:  ‘The Postal Service has had to adapt to changing times ever since Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first postmaster general by the Continental Congress in 1775. The Pony Express began in 1860, six-day delivery started in 1863, and airmail became the mode in 1918. Twice-a-day delivery was cut to one in 1950 to save money.

 

Regardless of ‘changing times’, this still could be a major inconvenience for the customer, what do you think?
