Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night

[Mail truck]It’s been recently announced that the U.S. Mail, starting next year, the U.S. post office will cut Saturdays from their delivery days. Meaning, weekends will be mail free, and we will only receive mail five days a week, as opposed to the six days that we are used to.

This bums me out slightly, I mean, I rarely ever use mail. In fact, I couldn’t tell you when the last time I bought a stamp was, But I do order items and packages, and I do subscribe to netflix. It’s nice to be able to receive those things on Saturdays! I will miss that!

However, if that’s how they want to handle things, cutting delivery down to five days a week, then fine. However I think they would save money by keeping saturday deliveries and eliminating Mondays. How so you ask? Well, because it seems like every other monday the mail doesn’t run to begin with, due to some holiday. The Postal delivery people still get paid on those days. Holiday time, but if they didn’t work on those days normally, they wouldn’t need to be paid on those days!

However, if they absolutely MUST get rid of Saturday deliveries, will this mean that they will take off less holidays? That to me would make sense, or at least decrease the cost of stamps!
