US Postal Service out of money?

Postal service could run out of money in 09:

What about every other day mail delivery to save money, gas, etc?

US Postal Office always seems to have financial problems. This time around it is no different. They should find a better way to serve customers. Fedex and UPS are doing okay because they offer what Postal Service doesn't.

Well, I am working with the US Postal Service with our business online for many years and we are happy with their services.

I wish they offer some better rates for businesses/customers when we use their online services, but we save a lot of time so that's good.

They need to work on who they hire. Seriously, most of the people there are mean old people that work really slowly.

I don't care if they do go out. A private company will be there to pick up the business. That would increase services, increase speed, increase customer service, increase efficiency. Anything a gov't controlled entity does can be done better by a private firm.

The post office needs to be more competitive. Companies like UPS and FedEx are offering more services then the postal service, so why use them?

One example - you can not ship firearms through the mail, only through UPS. And I am not sure about FedEX. That gives all of the gun companies business to someone besides the postal service. If you give your business away, expect to lose money.

I personally don't think that the USPS will be disappearing any time soon.
We'll just have to see about that one...

That's pretty funny probably because it's true
