No Mail on Saturdays?

I've noticed that I haven't been receiving mail on Saturdays lately.  I remember reading a while back that the post office was considering cutting mail delivery down to five days a week, but I didn't hear whether it actually happened.  Is my mail carrier just lazy, or are they only delivering in Tacoma Monday thru Friday now?

They have not stopped Saturday delivery, and if they do go to five days, it may not necessarily be Saturday they stop.

Your mailman may be lazy (not enough information) or you may be wildly unpopular (highly unlikely), or it could just be a coincidence.

As a former mailman, I regret to report that mail seems a dying business.

Perhaps he's just annoyed. I was tired of him going in my side gate, walking through my yard, around the side of my house (and glancing in my windows) to deliver my mail. So I padlocked the side gate.

Guess I'll have to wait until Monday for my junk mail.

I only get bills and those goddamn fliers from ComCrap.

No one sends me letters. No one sends me post cards.
My bills are minimal, so I typically have something in my mailbox maybe 2-3 days a week. Can I claim that Tacoma gets mail delivered only 3 days a week?

Besides, they won't cut out Saturdays. They'd cut Thursdays or something like that. I highly doubt the USPS would give it's carriers 2 days in a row off.

Mandiferous@ first time I ever heard of someone looking forward to the next delivery of junk mail.

@fredo- better than bills.


I'm Mandi. I've lived in the Tacoma area my whole life and I love it. I'm not a very prolific blogger but I do what I can.
