A Failing Grade for the US Post Office

We recently left home for a week and used the USPS online tool to have our mail held.
We gave them the stop date and the restart date and printed out a nice form confirming all the relevant information.
How did they do?
Not well!
They delivered mail for at least two days after the stop date and the restart date has gone by and we are still waiting for mail to arrive….
This level of performance may earn one a high school diploma but out in the real world the grade is failing.
Unfortunately, the USPS has a monopoly on certain types of mail. This needs to change!!

There is some competition and even though I’m a bit of a Luddite when it comes to electronic bills I will confirm our evaluation of the USPS by moving a 4-5 monthly and quarterly items to electronic delivery or payment.
