Guaranteed prices will soar. City delivery is easy to make money. City to city is easy. As soon as that cute mail truck delivers to a rural address, it loses money.
Every aspect has been bandied about. Different delivery days to reduce cost, eliminate Saturday's, Every other day delivery. How about those prescription drugs? Welfare check? Unemployment check? Oops. That might get delivered tomorrow. Hope your not desperate. Postal rates are about to go up. That letter is suppose to go from 49 cents to 50 cents. Privatize? Watch the rates go up. Especially when Grandma has been getting her mail delivered to her front door for the past 50 years and now it's changing? Betch'a the ol' senator gets a ear full on that one.
You might notice that some Ebay sellers also mark things as shipped when they haven't been. That might be worthy of checking the tracking number when it shows up.
Different number, eh? Oops. Not the first time.
