Post Office going the way of Pony Express

I’ve had problem with the United States Postal Service, or USPS, before but things are just getting rediculous. After the $0.02 stamp rate increase they quickly ran out here and we had to use two $0.37 stamps to send my brother a card. That was almost 2 weeks ago and he still doesn’t have it.

The USPS has also tried to get the federal government to tax each email you send. Why? Because the USPS is loosing popularity to a quicker and more reliable service – email. Sounds like another company of which you’ve heard?

Pony Express lost to trains which would carry mail across country faster. They, too, lost to a more popular service that was just better.

Even for package delivery I don’t use USPS unless I don’t have a choice. FedEx and UPS have both proven reliable and had package tracking long ago. The fact that I could see where my mail was only affirmed that either company also knew where my package was. Right now I have no idea where Kyle’s birthday card and gift are – does USPS?

So, if anyone from USPS is reading learn from history that there will always be a better technology that will make previous technologies in that area obsolete. That’s just how the future goes.
