    1- Stop the e-packet garbage from China. You already have admitted to losing $$$ on each packet.

    2 – Stop delivering on Sunday the garbage that someone can’t wait for from AMAZON AND WALMART. Losing money when a carrier has to come into the office and drive 80 miles round trip to delivery a package of cat toys that sold for 3.99 with free shipping. HOW STUPID IS THAT.

    3 – Stop doing the USP last mile deliveries. Let them do it themselves as that is what the shipper paid for. USP deliveries not the USPS. You don’t make money on these either.

    4 – Get rid of media mail. Everyone abuses it. Cheap way to ship something flat. Just tell the USPS jerks its media mail.

    5 – Raise the rates of junk mail to the cost of first class. If that piece of junk is so important the sender will pay first class. Who needs all this junk in a mailbox. I’m tired of having to throw all the crap away.

    6 – Get rid of some of the lazy postmasters. Why do you need a postmaster at each location when such location isn’t even big enough for a route or two. In our area within 20 miles we have 8 post offices for a total of 7 routes. All of the routes come out of just 2 offices BUT THERE ARE 7 POSTMASTERS…

    1. I agree with everything except Media Mail. We need Media Mail. Selling media is tough. competing against digital delivery products and pirated Amazon Fire Sticks.

  2. Almost agree with the above but the Media mail.
    Nobody is going to pay $6.00 shipping on a book.

    My mail is just as important as Amazon and should be at the same level.
    NOT giving Amazon boxes top priority over my, higher paid, priority packages.

    Ewwww. I hate seeing that mail truck on Sunday.
    People just don’t know how to wait for things.
    I still remember going Saturday shopping because stores were not open on SUNDAY.
    (PS. I love Hobby Lobby because they are closed on Sundays and the employees know they will always have that day off.)

  3. Just exactly what “reforms” is the US Post Office clamoring for other than postal rate increases? The postal rates are already too high. Postal workers pensions are way too high and egregious. There are way too many Post Office locations and need to be consolidated. My hometown population of 426 yes, four hundred twenty-six people have two separate Post Offices one in the “east” and one in the “west” about four miles apart. One too many and between the two there are five full-time workers and three part-timers yet they still need to bring in fill in workers to cover absentees. The largest business in town is a construction outfit with five full-time workers. Reduce the number of Postal employees and Post Offices. Reduce the postal rates. But what do I know other than being involved in mail order business since 1982. Don’t worry, Amazon will put the Post Office and all other businesses out of business so this issue will end up being moot.
