usps fail


i was going to write an entry about how usps’s placing 24/7 automated
systems was the best idea they’ve ever had, but now this is about the
inadequecy of said machines. i sold 10 books on amazon and could only
send 1 of them because the machines don’t take media mail. now the
wife has to ship those tomorrow, because they don’t even open ‘til
9:30am.

eventually, once the current desk clerks begin to retire, they should
think about placing about 5-10 of those machines in each post office
and keep about 2-3 real people working there. the post office is
definitely a place where self-service > clerks, and this would
definitely cut down on overall long-term expenses.
