Where have all the mailboxes gone?
Have you noticed? Many mailbox drop-off locations are disappearing. Quietly and unassumingly, the United States Postal Service has been removing postal drop-off mailboxes from street corners because the demand for mail has declined in many cities throughout the United States.
Email and the Internet has much to do with this trend as many people send e-greetings, text messages and/ or pay online instead of via “snail” mail as their high-tech preference over the postage stamp.
This is very concerning because how is the post office expected to pay government pensions to all those retired postal workers (hide your guns, folks!) if business is markedly down?
Stay tuned… the check’s still in the mail!
