The “I Won’t Get Mail on Saturday!” Blues
We have ANOTHER FIRST in the Obama’s reign of prosperity and change! The Post Office is going to stop delivering mail to you on Saturday, and of course, to show that Americans support this new cut in service, something that is a FIRST in the History of the Post Office..they are showing people on TV who are in full support.
“Oh..that a great idea! I don’t get anything but junk mail anyway!”
Nobody mentions whether the people who were working on Saturdays will get less pay, which might not hurt them too much because the average salary for the 650,000 American postal carriers is $80,000 a year. And the Post Master General makes more money than Obama, he’s not going to suffer.
Frankly, I think this stinks. Since we became a “service” country, everyone who used to get a weekly check, was forced to get a bi-weekly check, delivered of course…online into your bank account. One day they all said, “You will get your paycheck online.” If you didn’t have a computer…you had to get one.
So, every other Friday is payday, and the supermarkets plan their big sales around the two Fridays of every week in every month.
As for myself, to save time and effort, I pay all my bills as soon as I transfer the check on Friday, and then put them in the mailbox, and if the mailman comes BEFORE I get them all paid, which sometimes happen as they never have the same hours…I HAVE to get them in on Saturday, or else, since THE POSTOFFICE IS NOW SO DARN SLOW, I will get charged a late fee. You have to allow at least 12 days to be sure that your check gets there.
(What if they come before I get up on Friday?)
Then I have to go to the Post Office….and I’ll have to buy gas to go to the Post Office which will pollute the planet.
Nobody Wins, when the Post Office hours are cut, but they all got a raise anyway, thanks to Obama, so nobody is hurt but the American Citizen.
And just to make it all seem okay:
Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta reportedly believes the military should receive a pay cut in order to respond to the budget cuts facing the Pentagon — a position that might strengthen the Republican push to reverse President Obama’s executive order raising the salary of Vice President Joe Biden and other federal officials.
Nobody Thinks the real purpose behind this is to get everyone to pay all their bills…online. They really don’t care if the Post Office makes a profit. And while it seems so wonderful not to have to bother with writing that check, someday, you will look in your bank account and someone would have drawn out more than you wanted them too—-and you might never see that money again, because YOU have given them permission to go into your bank account and grab money.
And to think–they complained about Jesse James.
