Rural Mail Delivery

Posted by madjillmom on March 20, 2013

There are some commercials brought to us by the Letter Carrier Assn. The commercial tells us that rural areas need their 6 days a week delivery of mail. The commercial tells us that we should say goodbye to our mailman.  I have lived in a rural area for 13 years.  A mailman has never delivered to my mailbox. The postal service has had contract carriers out here for all this time.  No nifty uniforms and mail trucks. One of our “carriers” was a hard ridden woman with dirty t-shirts with the arms cut off driving an old dirty bronco.

Losing Saturday delivery is a minimal thing.  In fact, I believe that we could easily receive mail only three days a week, M-W-F, with only a minimal impact. I do not need to receive junk mail daily to be happy. If someone needs greater service, let them rent a PO box in town for greater service.

Stop pulling on the heartstrings with pictures of handsome, young mailmen. They are not the reality, they are a myth in rural America.  Adapt or perish.

Quit whining and starve the BEAST!!!
