First, they sell us stamps at 37 cents apiece and then wonder why mail volume is going down. Hello...email. I'd be much more likely to send snail mail if it didn't take 5 days to send mail 30 miles away (true! - where I live mail sits in the office that day, travels to a hub the next, from hub to hub the next, hub to neighboring town's post office, and finally delivered, 5 days total, assuming no delays or weekends...) AND if it didn't cost more than a dollar to send 3 envelopes. 33 cents should be the logical max for now. I bet they'd do more volume. And when it comes time to hike the price, go all the way to 40, or 50. I'm an intelligent guy, but I just don't like having to do math in the post office while I'm in a hurry just to figure out if I have enough money in my pocket to mail my bills. Second, bankers keep better hours than these people! I went in today to mail a letter that has to be where it's going by Thursday (so I was going to mail it priority, a whole other complaint - 3.80 to shave a day or two off?!) but they're only open from 10 until 12 on Saturdays. Give me a fereakin' break. Don't tease people like that. If you're gonna be open, be open at least 6 hours. Otherwise, just be closed! I'm beginning to think that they should privatise the postal service. Sure we might see a hike in stamps, and lose those precious 2 hours on Saturdays. Heck, we might even lose Saturday delivery altogether, but if that means improved service, I'm all for it.
