Thanks. That was a very well constructed argument.
/do you deliver mail?


There are plenty in this thread who made well-constructed arguments that you just ignored. Then you complain that this guy calls you a farking idiot, without addressing any of them.

So I'd say he was pretty right to call you a farking idiot.

Being the Postal Service sucks.

You have zero autonomy.  You can't raise prices.  You can't streamline operations.  You can't reduce your unprofitable coverage areas.  You can't even cut costs or lay people off.  You can't do jack-all without Congressional approval, and Congress is run by people who refuse to help fix you because they want a dysfunctional government agency as a rhetorical foil to prove why government agencies don't work.

I'm not sure why anyone accepts a job as Postmaster General.
