Postal Service To Stop Saturday Delivery, But Will Anyone Really Care?
Of all the things that I can do on a Saturday, walking down my driveway to the mailbox barely makes the list. Mainly the reason I even check on Saturday is because my wife reminds me to. And I don’t think any of us looks forward to one more day to receive bills in the mail. Plucking ticks off my dog would almost rate higher.
Saturday delivery will soon disappear. The U.S. Postal Service has announced that they will suspend Saturday delivery beginning in August. This will reportedly save around $2 billion annually. Considering how close they’ve come to collapse in the recent past, they need to take serious measures. Frankly, I don’t know why they’re waiting so long. Put that dog down now.
Postal Service officials say packages will still be delivered six days a week. And you can still pick up mail at your post office box if the station you use is already open on Saturday’s. So, if you’re waiting on the latest gadget from Ronco to arrive at your door, you could still receive it on a Saturday. But the credit card statement just might not arrive at your humble abode until the following Monday. How sad.
