I remember when the local post office reps would tell me to wait in line to drop off prepaid
packages and the office near my job (tech-industry area) would be all smiles and tell me to just leave em there and not to stand in line. Yeah, its a broken system that can't fail or be fixed. Meh
Whenever I go to my local post office, everyone is usually friendly and pretty quick as there is usually a line. I've been going there for a few years and it has always been the same two guys mailing my packages haha.
On another note, how does a dual 140 rad + 180 single rad sound for cooling an i7 3930k and a GTX 680?
As much as it sucks to deal with some of the stuff at the Post Office, we need to support it. That is a TON of jobs in the United States that will be lost if it closes down.
Wanna know how you can make it better? Sign up for tons of junk mail. Credit card offers, flyers to every store known to man, etc. Just shred the paper and recycle and your impact will be felt. My cousin works for the Post Office, and said it got real bad during the slow times... nothing going out. Now that the economy is improving its starting to get back to normal load of shipping letters and packages around. The more money we have coming into them the better.
Aside from that, I still prefer UPS for a shipping method. But hey, what are ya gonna do.
