I kinda love the post office. When I had a package lost the manager of my local post office called me every week for three weeks with updates on how he was looking for it. IMO that's pretty awesome service.
I really kind of love this post office as well. We just moved here in June, and we have a community mail box. I used to watch for the mail man to drive by and then just walk down to him to give him my packages. After a few weeks, he offered to stop by my house daily to pick up my packages. We have gotten a new mail man since then, but the new one does the same and tries to remind her alternates to pick up my packages as well. It saves quite a bit of effort on my part and I am appreciative that they stop since they are going by my house every day.
I totally understand that they are bleeding money and that this kind of price increase is necessary, but it's still a little shocking that FCI went up over 60%. I'm not sure many of us were prepared for that.
