    No more Saturday mail?

    Looks like it may be getting the axe. Does anyone care? I think it will be fine.

    Re: No more Saturday mail?

    Wasn't this proposed several years ago? If it goes through, I wouldn't miss it.

    Re: No more Saturday mail?

    Some people would say this is good for the environment.

    I use electronic whenever possible.

    The cost of mailing some small packages has also become atrocious.

    Re: No more Saturday mail?

    I don't like it if it means more layoffs for any business. That said, I don't think I would miss the Saturday mail all that much, unless my Netflix was coming


    Quote from imported_blubberhawk on HN after ISU beatdown of Iowa in Carver '14

    "When you lose to a fricking joke of a program like ISU, you get what you deserve. That game is a perfect illustration of why our head coach should be retired.
    In defense of the Big ten network, it is tough to find Iowa games anymore when we aren't embarrassed."

    Re: No more Saturday mail?

    Mail is getting over-priced. That's why I use carrier pigeons.

    Mail already sucks. Anything that gets shipped to Sioux City goes right past us and then back to us. The mail system is a fricken mess.

    Even mail doesn't want to be in Sioux City.

    My thoughts as well. I usually watch all of my Netflix DVD's over the weekend and send them all back on Monday/Tuesday. Get the new ones Thursday or Friday. However, there are a few straglers at times.

    Netflix is a rip off anymore for me. I've been a customer for three years and can't get new movies until a month after they are released.
