    GOOD GRIEF! Let’s nickel and dime us peons some more! Get rid of some of people who don’t know what they are doing and save money that way. The post office should hire their own mechanics to fix the mail trucks. They are getting ripped off big time at a place here in the suburbs. The independent shop owner charges for things that don’t need to be fixed and laughs about it. Should be investigated.

    • Truth

      Report it! – But back to this story, a 3 cent increase on stamps is not going to solve the USPS financial woes, the USPS is doomed unless they do a complete overhaul and CUT spending. I still mail and use stamps but I guarantee you if this goes into effect I AM NOT paying $0.49 for a frickin stamp! And the post office wouldn't get my $0.46 that they would have if this stupid hike didn't go into effect. This may be the straw that breaks the camels back and makes me go completely online. (I am 24, so I am not an old geeser btw)

  • The future

    I haven't mailed or received a piece of mail (not including junk or spam mail) in 7 years (not including packages being delivered UPS/FedEx). Everything is electronic now a days anyways! Pay bills online and receive e-bills…
