Response to ProfessorPlum (Original post)

15. I want to make a point about the Post Office.

We live in a rural area. Six days a week, our mail lady comes by our mailbox to deliver mail. If she doesn't have any for us, she comes by anyway to see if we have any mail to go out or if I want some stamps. She also delivers some of the UPS and FedEx packages for them. Could UPS and FedEx survive if they had to come by our place 6 days a week? How much profit are they skimming off the top if they can make money by paying the Post Office to deliver some of their packages? If a package won't fit in our mailbox, our mail lady drives up to the house and knocks on the door to see if we're home to accept it. We've had UPS and FedEx packages dumped outside and once left in an unused vehicle for who knows how long.
