instead of raising the price of stamps and buying new trucks, how about starting with employees who actually do their jobs??

Laziest employees

Laziest employees

They have the laziest employees and the worst customer service. Like all government-run organizations, there is virtually no employee oversight.

They lose packages, make late deliveries, lie about delivering items that were never delivered, and have the worst customer service both over the phone and at the Post Office.

They should sell the USPS to a private company.

The ones who will be hit the most with this are the elderly who still use the mail service exclusively. Everyone else will just use the internet more for letters. Even invitations are starting to be sent more by evite.

I couldn’t agree more with #1 and #2. The postal service has the laziest, slowest most inept employees! Why didn’t their study show that?

Forever Stamps

(#1) – All organizations have their share of lazy employees, it is hard when Unions are involved to get rid of these employees. Many take pride in their work and genuinely care about the service provided. (#2) – The post office is a Privately run organization, it is just regulated by the federal government. It is an independent agency of the United States federal government responsible for providing postal service in the United States. It is one of the few government agencies explicitly authorized by the United States Constitution. (#3) – Stamps are forever stamps, that means if you purchase… Read more »

Postage increase plan

The art of card sending for holidays, special occasions has been replaced by techno world. When the postage decreased briefly last year, I increased the letter support to military, sad to see it rose back to original cost, before holiday greetings were planned. I believe raising cost will adversely affect po, card shops etc. too many options of on line bill paying, free shipping and e-cards to compete. I know many European and Austrian Ian pen pals say $1.20 a letter is beyond their fixed income in bulk greeting mailings. Don’t shot yourself in foot, higher prices will decrease volume… Read more »
