Re: [Rant] US Post Office doesn't want coins anymore

I'm surprised USPS is still in business. Send an email and send packages via ups or FedEx

Who do you think ships some packages last mile?

hint: it isn't UPS or FedEx.

I guess you don't do online shipping. I can send stuff out in the middle of the night and just drop it in the bins.

I believe the longest was about 6 people and that was on a Monday mourning.

My PO can have a queue, but it often moves quickly (biggest hold-up is often someone applying for a passport). But just this past Monday, I went to send out some stuff. Got there at exactly 8am (opening time) & there was hardly a soul there!

Exactly. and reverse too!

like the time i shipped a computer to someone here and it got handed off to UPS and arrived broken. I've never seen a video of usps tossing electronics or a hard drive over a fence!

you mean your PO doesn't do the bank thing like mine does[8 stations, one manned, at least 3 people talking amongst themselves and at least one on a phone talking about how much fun she had at the club last night]

We have 1 teller most of the time but when it is busy a second will help out.

Amazingly, no. Our office has five windows & there can two or three people there at a given time. But it is a suburban office. I haven't been to any of the bigger offices in Boston for quite awhile, so I can't say how they are.

Oh. That makes sense. All elderly and poor folks without computers should just go kill themselves, right? Include those folks who could afford a computer but live where only dialup is available...they should kill themselves also since you personally don't need the USPS. Yeah, you make a lot of sense.

We have 5 tellers but usually only 2 or 3 stations are open. However, if you go to the Post Office no more than 15 minutes before closing time all stations are manned at that time and you will get served very quickly even if there are 20 people in line when you walk in. So, I try to time my trips to go just before closing.

I too am baffled by the US post office haters. Yes, it isn't a perfect service, but nothing is. The country still needs the post office. Major services would be disrupted without it.

I hate them. But then the one i go to has the bank style stations with one manned and three people behind him shooting the shit. Doesnt take to long to get that way when your dealing with the one i do. I actually started driving the extra distance to one that isnt as bad. I drive past that one and go to the next one. Of course if you get a certified letter or a delivery that requires signature you really dont have a choice. You just bite your tongue and curse them under your breath as you wait in line.
