USPS to possibly stop Saturday delivery

OK~ It is in the news again today.  The USPS is considering dropping Saturday mail service.  This has been circulating through many different news sources for quite some time now.  In all reality, we do not receive near the amount of mail through the USPS that we did five years ago.  With so many transactions being completed on-line and so many people signing up for NO JUNK MAIL, Saturday mail is probably no longer needed.  Both of these things are kind of a catch twenty two-  The biggest problem, jobs are lost.

If you think about it, our society itself has taken away many jobs due to the advancements in the world of technology.  I don't know about you, but I do enjoy many of the technological advancements that have been made.  Our world is ever changing and it scares me to think of where things will be 10 years from today!  My 19 & 14 year old do not remember what it is like to not have a computer in the house. Those of you that have younger kids, imagine the changes they will experience during their lifetime~ I don't know if I like all of these changes, but- I'll keep trekking on- sure beats the alternative!  After All, It's All In A Mom's Day, Right?

  1. Wow, I had not heard that about no more Saturdays. I really need to watch the news! The rate at which technology is advancing is scary, isn't it? I was just talking with my 15-year-old and wondering what phones, computers, even social networking stuff will be like when he's the age I am now.

    I'll try to be optimistic. Maybe the jobs that are lost will hopefully be found again in some new area. ;o)

  2. I don't mind if they cut back delivery. We only get junk mail usually on saturdays anyway! If it saves taxpayers money, I am for it. It's a shame its going to cut jobs, but if it puts our government in more debt by continuing on, what good will that do? At least postal workers have a heads up, maybe some will be able to look for new jobs now, before the change is made.

  3. I would hate if they cut back on delivery. Saturday's mail is def. needed. If this does happen,people will def. have to watch when they pay their bills and to plan ahead a few days. I think this is an inconvenience because I commute to work 2 hours total everyday and during the weekday it's hard for me to find time to get to the postal office when it's open.
