(UPI)   The price of a first class stamp is going up three cents. A stamp is that small square thing you stick on an envelope to mail a letter. Yes, a letter. You know, what your parents used to use before email and texting. Still not ringing any bells?   ( divider line

ArcadianRefugee: Email is still letters.

I mean, who says "I sent an email"? Do you also say, "I sent a mail" when you use[d] the USPS?

I sent you an email. I emailed it to you.
I sent you a letter. I mailed it to you.

ModernPrimitive01: As long as packages don't go up again I'm fine with this. Shipping increases kill the small music labels I work with because they have to pass that onto customers

Why are you shipping MP3?

People who in the course of their lives and/or business don't have to use the USPS, so therefore ipso facto it is never used by anyone else for any reason unless they're 99 years old or idiots and therefore braying out 'buggy whips!' is the pinnacle of humor.

Pants full of macaroni!!: Fun fact: once a technology is deemed 'obsolete', all memory of its existence vanishes from the earth and the minds of the entire human race.

And what's with the first class, anyways?  Why would a stamp need a bigger seat and free drinks?

I wish they would raise it to $50. The only people I know of who send postal mail are spam warehouses who think I do something with snailmail other than put it unopened into the recycle bin.

Seriously, do you even know anyone who's mailed a (non-spam) dead-tree letter in the last decade?

DarkVader: Stupid.
Raise it to 50¢.
And the next time, raise it to 75¢.
Stop it with the stupid penny increases.  And bring back Sunday delivery.

I snarked in one thread that Congress had passed laws so that the post office could only raise stamp prices in "embarrassingly small increments" but it wouldn't surprise me.......
