if only you lived where they would not have to use sled dogs or ice air pilots to deliver things! :)

Is a local resident running your town's post office? seems like USPS is not honoring their contract with Amazon in your area. :(
I'm thinking you're correct and I agree. Its up to Amazon to make USPS do it. Shenanigans!

contact your area's postmaster? Amazon is useless on things like this so i would not contact customer service other than to get a token credit. I got 3 late UPS amazon packages in a row, contacted amazon that their management might want to communicate with UPS about reducing the number of late deliveries, and amazon telling me there is nothing they can do about it. i know if i was an e-commerce proprietor, i would be talking to my shipping company if i was not satisfied with their service.

Did that. Amazon didn't even offer a token credit this time. What they did do (for the second time), and that was after requesting a supervisor, is promise to change the default delivery company for Sundays so USPS won't be delivering my Sunday packages in the future. However note second time.

hmmmmmmmmm. I know UPS and FEDEX have been talking sunday deliveries for awhile to support ecommerce customer needs but I was not aware anyone but USPS was an option at this time. I love my USPS service as Sunday deliveries are done without problems and I wish you could enjoy that too.

I can't recall if it is UPS or FedX that does Sundays here, but I do know it's one of them because I've gotten Sunday deliveries from them just not from Amazon.

Discovered today that you can send a letter without having either an envelope or a stamp with an online service (actually there are quite a few). Also, you can order one stamped envelope from USPS.

It's been a long time since I have used snail mail.

Doesn't mean the gas tank cannot rupture during impact and leaking fuel catch on fire.

my first impression is that the crash is caused by pilot error, electing to fly due to schedule pressure than common sense of flying only in VFR conditions.
Looks like he was trying too hard to avoid going IFR.

ha, I can't even recall the last time I mailed a letter, or anything. What online service? I admit, I had no idea you could do that...

I wish there was a way in the automatic payments scheduling to elect the day you want to transfer. For example every Monday and Thursday would take care of those of us who like 3 day transfers and ensure we actually see money in our bank accounts the day after. Transfers on Fridays are useless since they don't arrive at the bank until Monday (or Tuesday if Monday is a holiday). Once again this week I get my money on Monday and then Tuesday.

That is exactly what I have been thinking about today. I would prefer every 3 day transfers for the same reason. I don't like 7 day option at all, because I don't but that is what I went with. For now.

I haven't decided which to try yet but MailMyLetter by LetterStream looks good to me https://www.mailmy letter.net/?r=letterstream and mailform https://www.mailformio/lp/send-letter-online looks good too.

I wish the various government agencies would wake up and smell the coffee . . . if you want a copy of a document they want a letter in the mail and offer to let you pay by check. Good grief, I haven't had checks in years!
