Later: Cardiologist cut in half one of his medications. We'll try this a few days and see if it gives him a little pep.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~How do you feel about mail, the paper kind, that appears in your mailbox?
Mail time around our house is super important. Bob absolutely has to get the mail every single day, rain, shine, sleet or snow. If he's not able to make the trip to the mailbox it becomes my job.
Another one of those things we differ on. I would go days before I'd remember to pick up the mail if it were left to me. In fact, our postman says Bob is one of a very few, out of 500 apartment units, that checks for mail every day. Our postman complains because many residents let the mail build up until their box gets full and he has to take it back to the post office.
I don't complain about picking up the mail because it gives me a little exercise walking the two blocks to the mailbox but I never expect anything of importance to be in the box. Most days I'm right. I don't know why Bob bothers to carry the ads home only to throw them in the trash here. I would trash them at the mailboxes except I know Bob expects me to bring back every scrap of mail.
I pay all our bills on line. We no longer receive hand written letters. There's just not much of importance that still comes to our mailbox. Oops, wrong, we do receive our prescriptions by mail.
For a time we heard rumors the postal service would cut home delivery to five days a week but haven't heard anymore about that. Once a week would be fine with me.
I'm a little surprised we still receive so many catalogs. I don't order out of catalogs. I go online and order. I suppose we have to keep some of this stuff going because printing catalogs gives somebody a job.
I don't want to cut jobs. I just wonder if the postal service could not be managed better, retrain some people, run the place more efficiently. Probably too much to ask.
How important is daily mail delivery to you?
