    Well. Finally (after paying the bribe), I have sent this email complaining to USPS.
    I'm pretty sure that they will use it as "electronic toilet paper" but, I'm also sure that there are many others that have suffered similar issues. If enough of this guys send complaints about it, maybe the USPS would take it in account.
    (If not, this is after all a way of vent out the frustration...)

    Well, Javier, now you've gone and done it... You'll have the International Postal System Conspiracy after you! Yeah, you'll be walking down the street one day when some people in postal uniforms will jump out of an alley and drag you off. Then someone will find you laying in the gutter...<shudder>...covered in stamps and tied up with packing tape!

    (I'm not a paranoid conspiracy theorist. I'm just tired of people plotting and planning to get me.)

    I could use a free mail to Bahamas (or New Zealand, or...) :D :D :D

    It would be nice to put myself inside a big box (like the Gauge's one) and have a friend to send me by mail. :p
    But then I remember this GPS/ES guys and I have images of me starving into a warehouse because the addressee don't pay the clearance!!! :eek: :mad: :eek:
    Better next time... ;)

    " When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
    We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, It is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, Laying its foundations on such principles and organizing its power in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness."- in congress, July 4, 1776

    Many of the reasons stated in this "declaration" have very close similarities with conditions existing in government today. These words, 227 years old, are as applicable now as they were then, and to me, as sacred.-------------
    Sumpter gets off his soap box, and puts it away again.................till next time.

    Re: minority opinion

    45 cents?! I only pay 37 cents. The problem with the US Postal system and that small fee is that there is no guarantee and no way of tracking the letter, package, etc. If you want those services you will have to pay a minimum of about $4.00. (This is the service that FedEx and UPS offers on all packages.) Not such a great bargain at that price.

    In the USA, UPS will delivery without having to sign for it, and if you get one of those Post-Its, there is a place to sign and you just put it back on the door and UPS will deliver without you being there.

    Fortunately, or unfortunately, my experience has been that USPS, UPS and FedEx all have their ups and downs. I live in the US, about five minutes from my local Post Office, ten minutes from my local UPS depot, and FedEx will pick up at my door. Which one I use depends on what I am sending, where it is going, and how fast it has to be there. There's no one best answer; but you just have to use whatever you think best at the time.
