    Re: Online banking

    hmmm..i like the tracking.

    sometimes i get the feeling that UPS is a step away from being able to tell me exactly what intersection the truck with my package is at and what the driver is listening to on the radio.
    heh.

    With GPS that wouldn't be difficult to do. Combine that with flight tracking information, and you could know the exact location and speed of your package any time it's on the move.

    So, y'all pay $20 for shipping just to know where your package is? Weirdos.

    UPS ground is a little over $5.

    if the customer wants to know where the package is, I want to know where the package is.

    I don't mail packages. If I did, my only concern would be did it get there on time or not. I honestly can't tell you how the USPS tracking system works. You'd have to give it a whirl. If it sucks, go back to UPS I guess.

    Re: Online banking

    I've had the misfortune of going to the post office a couple of times lately. Here's what I've encountered:

    1. Of course, there are 20 people in line and one person working.

    2. I was returning a rug to Overstock.com. It was rolled up like a tootsie roll. It took 3 of them to figure out to enter the "length, height, and width" into the computer. "There's no width! What's the width?" They still got it wrong Dude measured the circumference then divided it by 2. I had been standing there so long I just let it go.

    3. I was mailing an evelope and didn't care how long it took to get there. I asked for the cheapest method. Moron offers me Express mail. I said "Is that the cheapest?". So then she offers me Priority mail. Isn't First Class even cheaper? What's so hard about giving me the cheapest rate when I ask for it?

    4. Priority mail is NOT 2 day. It's "2 or 3 day, whatever we feel like". I'm not sure how this is different from First Class. I guess First Class is "whenever, if at all".

    5. I don't see it on the USPS web site, but I could have sworn the moron offered me "guaranteed delivery" for an extra charge. Perhaps I misunderstood her, see #6.

    6. They act like the customer is the moron because we don't study up on USPS labels and guidelines before we go into the post office. No, I don't know which label to put on there, where to put it, or what special kind of tape you require. And no I don't want to stand here and hand write the address on the label. You're going to type it into your computer anyway, so why don't you just print a label for me and put it where it goes? Yes, I'll gladly pay more for the new-fangled thing that UPS and FedEx provide. I think they're calling this new thing "Customer Service".

    This thread has been split out for less confusion on my tiny brain.

    If your customer wants to know where the package is, just forward their call to Dean.

    I want them to make stamps 50 cents each, and lock that price in for 10 years.

    This is my only real complaint about the post office. What's with that? I've never had a problem with mail being on time, etc.

    You can buy "perpetual" stamps now that will work no matter what the first class rate is. But postage increases have historically been less than inflation, so you're better off dealing with new stamps every few years.

    Actually, that's not true. I looked it up the other day and the price of first-class postage has increased by about 50% in real dollars since the 70s.

    One thing the USPS most certainly has is a mighty fine buffet at their training center. DEEEEE-LISH!

    Here's where I got that from: http://www.slate.com/id/2166475/

    Since 1971, postal rates have increased more slowly than the actual inflation rate, as measured by the U.S. Consumer Price Index. So, despite the numerous rate hikes over the last 36 years, stamps have actually been getting cheaper. ... Should this historical pattern hold, you'd be paying more for today's forever stamps than you would for any stamp in the future, no matter how high the rate goes.

    In fact, this pattern must hold—as a matter of law. In December, President Bush signed the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, which ensures that future price increases will be kept below an inflation-based ceiling. In other words, postage hikes will never surpass inflation—and the forever stamp will never become a good investment.
    I'm not happy until you're not happy.
