Carl Azuz, Anchor
Yes, stopping Saturday deliveriees would matter to me very much because whenever I'm waitiong something important to come in the mail, I would have to wait two days when I could have gotten it on Saturday.
I have no opinion on the matter that Saturday mail delivery is very important or not. You can get important information or invitations to parties. It could also just be more bills and junk mail, too. It wouldn't really matter to me personally.
It would not affect me. I don't get a whole. Lot of mail anyways.
With the rising usage of technology such as e-mail, video chat and text messaging, I think the US Postal Service will continue to see tough times ahead. It may be sad but a lot of people just don't send others letters anymore.
No, i do not send or receive enough mail to make a difference to me.
I think that the u.s. postal service should keep delivering on saturdays because if it's your birthday you shouldn't have to wait any longer. also, because, if there is an urgent letter or emergency you should be aware sooner than later!
I don't think they should stop delivering mail on Saturdays because what if you have to pay a bill and its due the next day and if your waiting for important mail you don't want to wait to get it .
Yes,because maybe someone wants to receive something important like a package from family so we deserve our package when we need them.
Even though most of the world is switching to getting mail from the internet, many people still use the postal service to get certain things such as college acceptance and horrible knitted sweaters from your aunt that is just learning to knit. You can't replace that.
I'm sort of in the middle. I like having Saturday mail, but it won't really effect me or my parents.
To me the majority of Saturday's mail is junk so I couldn't care less whether they stop it or not.
I think that there is no need to close Saturday mail delivery;some people don't have other sources of information besides Newspaper.
If mail was stopped on Saturdays then it would matter to me because a lot of the magazines and letters from friends come on Saturdays for me.
Because email is more popular these days, it won't be a matter to me. My friends can also send e-mail through smart-phone. It is more convenient~
I think it wouldn't make much of a change because people are still able to contact others. The only bad thing would be people losing there job...
why should it even matter because it still can run on other days and they hurting them selfs by not sending out mail
No, not getting mail on Saturday will effect me. Instead of righting letters, most people like me spend too much time on Facebook and on emails and don't get any letters.
So many people want there mail on time so i think it is inportent to ask people what tey want not the goverment.
My boyfriend is a Marine and the only way I will soon only be able to talk to him is through letters and mail. So yes it will matter to me a lot.
The only thing that it will affect is if I have to go and get the mail or not.
If and when the post office quits, it will matter to me. I have family members and friends all in a different state, I am going to have to send a card or letter to them every so often to say "Hello."
I son't really use the mail anyway, I use e-mail more often. The postal service is just a bit too old to keep up with the modern e-mail that can get to its destination in a matter of seconds, while the postal service can get it there in a matter of days.
This won't really affect me that much because Carl said they will still be delivering packages, and I usually don't write letters. Only things I expect in the mail are packages I order off of ebay or amazon.
Yes, it would matter to me. Because stopping Saturday service, would mean getting our mail, and packages at a later convienence, and who's up for that?
no because most of my mail is things we don't need
I think it is ok because the mailmen need a break from all the weather.
IT DOSENT MATTER
I honestly kind of don't care. I do check my mailbox a lot for mail for me, but as long as they keep delivering packages on Saturdays, I'll be okay.
Mail Men have the right to take Saturdays off. This is not the biggest priority for people. Gun Laws are.
I exchange letters with 6 or 7 friends, so not having mail on Saturday is going to be disappointing. I love getting mail, so not having it on the weekends isn't something I look forward to. =(
Saturday mail delivery being terminated wouldn't hurt me, because I don't receive lots of mail, but packages would.
It wouldn't make a difference to me personally, but since my parents pay the bills, I suppose it would make a difference to them for the better.
Getting only packages on Saturdays won't really affect me because I mainly communicate with email. Magazines and other junk mail can wait until Monday!
My dad works in the USPS,I am sure he will enjoy the day off but I am not so sure people will like not recieving their mail on Saturdays..
I wouldn't really care very much, I'm just a kid i don't get mail very often.
There are seven days in a week why does Saturday have to be chosen?That's when your off work and have time to write and read important things like letters to or from your friends and family or important bills.
I usually get my new comics on Saturdays! 🙁
I don't really think one day matters.
It doesn't affect me, to communicate long distance with people I call or text them. Using the postal service is not something I use on a day to day basis.
As long as we're still getting mail on the weekdays, and packages will still be delivered on Saturday, I don't really mind.
I care because one of my closest friends moved to Egypt and it's easier to send her gifts and and such by mail, and I would like to to receive letters from her as soon as possible.
I don't really care
Personaly, I don't care about not having saturday delivery. Anything that I would need to get I can get through email or social media. However, I can see how it would affect buisness people who rely on the mail.
It matters to me because my grandmother stays in contact with her family in Norway by snail mail. To her, letters are not becoming obsolete because it's her main way of contact with people.
It would affect me a lot because I frequently send out letters to try to impact people or organizations for a certain cause and earnestly seek for responses.
It does not affect me because I am really only expecting packages and I can always email someone if I want to get a hold of them.
I think the Saturday delivery thing is actually very helpful because if someone is waiting for a important package they can get it very soon and wouldn't have to wait until Monday or maybe tuesday. Also it can be a difference to people who have a job because if your waiting for a important package for their job it's most likey they will get it soon. It's a big thing to me because I have a lot of family that are out of the state and they always send me packages and I love getting them I get to exited to wait so now I can get them on Saturday!!!! So that's why it's important for me.
I think that empty mailboxes would effect lots of people including me because we already don't get mail on Sundays if we didn't get it on Saturdays, then we could not get a letter someone sent Friday until Monday.
This policy could also effect small businesses because they rely on the mailing system to communicate and pay bills Taking it away could make people loose lots of money.
I think that for a lot of people it does matter, but for a teenager, maybe not so much. The majority of teenagers today have some sort of way of communicating online. Social media is faster and easier for people than having to send a letter and have to wait for it to arrive. But then there are people who do a lot of their work and business interactions through the mail. Getting rid of a mail day won't help their business.
I dont really care because I don't receive much mail. I know that people here and there will be affected by this but I care more about our country then a day of incoming letters .the country is in debt and the government is trying really hard to get out of it so they do what they need to do to help the nation. People should stop complaining about every dang thing the government does and just agree to make some cutbacks. We have a good government and should support them while the country gets back on their feet.
I think they should
No, it doesn't affect me if the U.S. Post Service stops Saturday delivery because my family and I use email or telephone now. We don't send mail that much.
This wouldn't matter to me, but what about the families who can only communicate through mail? This is pushing them more to transfer to email and not use American mail companies any more. It is faster and easier in most cases.
I dont think it would matter to me because not alot of people do letters anymore because of emails and other electronics.
They sholdent stop saturday mail becuase would if u have something important like business work
No because it doesnt mateer it will come the next day
The U.S. postal service shouldn't stop delivering on saturdays because people need to recieve or send mail with their service
most of my family members live far away so i would be sad if i couldnt mail them a gift on thier birthday
I think we should keep th saterday mail. It might be a good idea.
saturday mail delivery wouldnt be a a huge change nobody reallys send letters any more because of email and texting is more faster and simple the writing a lettler
It doesn't personally effect me because I never get letters in the mail, only packages. It might effect my parents though because they get business letters regularly.
I think that it's not that important if it stop coming on Saturday because most of us use email or textin to get to people faster.
My birthday is on a Saturday so I would like to get some birthday cards on my actual birthday besides the ones from my parents
It doesn't effect me, I almost never get mail and if someone what's to get a hold of me they can call or text me.
It matters because the USPS is the only way to communicate to my older sister who lives in Yellowknife of the Northwest Territories and with out it I couldn't talk to her.
It doesn't matter for me but even still there's always Monday through Friday delivery.
I personally never get mail unless it is my birthday or thank you notes from someone else's birthday. So no mail for one day of the week would not matter to me.
Well it will because even though we think we may not use it a lot we do. And the post office would not be in so much in the red in its finances If the previous administration had not done it to the post office. Which is the only federal to do something like that
I believe that once the Saturday post is closed it shouldn't affect me, or most people for that matter unless it is life or death mail. As they will still be delivering packages it won't affect me very much and if I get a letter two days of wait isn't too terrible.
If mail doesn't come on Saturdays and someone's party might have been on the Sunday they would miss it cause of the new mail laws. It would just become a huge inconvenience.
In my opinion it wouldn't bother me at all because I don't receive that much mail. The only mail that I receive is my report card and it can simply be known by calling the school.
I think that not having postal service on Saturday will affect most people in different ways. Some that aren't too major and some that would have a very big impact on how people sent and received mail. It's not a big problem but it should really be thought about before final decisions.
I think that with modern technology, we as a nation have become less dependent on the postal service, and more dependent on other types of communication like email and texting. So I think that to save. Money it is acceptable to not get mail on Saturdays. It will only affect me getting Netflix discs and occasional letters that I could live without for a day.
It doesn't matter cause I don't get mail any ways
I think getting postal service on Saturdays is important to keep because most people have time to deal with mail.
Having no postage on Saturday really doesn't effect me. I used to send letters to my grandparents, and friends but now I can do the same thing over email or Facebook, which is also faster. Even things like invites to a party can be sent over a evite.
I really don't care cause Monday – Friday they will still do deliver
No because i'm to lazy most days i'm the laziest on Saturdays and i dont really think any body grabs there mail any way on Saturdays
No it wouldn't really matter to me because we don't really even get mail on Saturday. I don't think my parents would really care either because that means no bills on Saturday!
Well it depends because I am not one to really receive or send letters
If they stop delivering mail on saturdays, then just get the mail sent sooner! Not a big deal-e-o.
if this happens then most people would have more of a problem sending letters to families
Not getting mail on Saturday will matter to me because when I order something online I can not wait to receive it. With mail not being delivered on Saturday, I will have to wait one more day to get my order. Also, this year my birthday is going to be on a Saturday and anybody who wants to send me a card will have to remember to send it a day early or it won't get to me on my birthday.
Of course it will matter because people will get their bills one day later which leaves less time for them to do it. Also if people ordered packages that contained a prescription they would want it as soon as possible! If anyone wanted to get a birthday card to someone on their birthday they would get it a day late. This is why I think it is important to have mail on Saturday.
I check the mail every day, the postal service is very Important to me and I think that this is a bad decision.
I get letters from my grandparents but that's mostly it. I wouldn't mind if the letters came a couple of days later.
I think it is important to have a mail system. If it crashes the economy it doesn't matter because capatilism is bad.
Stopping Saturday postal delivery services will not effect me because I don't get mail or packages too often. If it will effect anyone it would probably be my parents because they get more mail then I do.
I get my report card on Saturdays so it matters a lot because I already get anxiety when it comes on Saturdays to add another two days will make it that much worse.
Everyone loves getting mail, but with the new technology these days and everything being done electronically now, I don't think skipping one more day of mail would be that big if a deal.
I think it matters more that postal employees get a well deserved pension after all their years of working. They can't get as big of a pension if the postal service is in major debt.
With email we can write letters and send it on a phone, I never really get mail only on my birthday.
Receiving mail on Saturdays is important to me, but maybe the USPS could take in consideration doing Saturday mailing every other Saturday rather than stopping it completely.
I think that stops in Saturday mail wouldn't affect me personally, but it would affect a lot of people. If the USPS really thinks that stopping Saturday mail would save them $2,000 a year, they should stop Saturday mail, but keep in mind the people getting affected by it.
I think it would be no different, because usually you don't get any important letters, etc. on Saturday.
I think they should be mail on Saturday because I like to see if I got mail Saturday.
It doesn't Really matter too much to me but it's always nice to just have the excitement of opening mail in my hands. it seems that everything is becoming virtual and online and it bugs me that all of these old things are turning into everything on a screen... I would rather have mail come to my house every Saturday. Or else mail will just turn out like movies putting everything on a hard drive and putting thousands out of business.
Getting mail on a Saturday isn't very important to me. I rarely ever send mail, I use email or Facebook. I won't miss it very much.
Getting mail on a Saturday isn't very important to me. I rarely ever send mail, I use email or Facebook. I won' miss it very much.
Not having mail delivered on Saturdays won't really effect me personally because I don't mail a lot of letters. On the other hand, people who live further away from the city like in the country sometimes depend on letters to talk to other people who live far away if they don't have e-mail; so this might effect people living in the country in a bad way.
Honestly It doesn't really matter to me, because I don't really get mail anyway and if I do I only get my report cards, birthday cards or chirstmas cards and that's not really much. So it doesn't really matter to me.
Ever since we've gotten email and Facebook it just work better and it gets to people quicker 🙂
It really don't matter to me
longest I get my mail
To me it is very important, because sometimes I get letters from my aunt, but if what the show says is going to happen, I might not get any letters from her. She lives a ways from me, so if what the USPS's plan takes action, I might not get any letters from my aunt or anyone for a while.
i do not think a lot of people will really care if they don't get their mail on Monday as long as their packages get delivered
I do not really think people will care if they can't get their mail on Saturdays as long as they can still get their packages.
The post office should be open on Saturday, but the government should give the post office more money. People need Saturday pickup and delivery for important things
Well to many people this would not effect them what-so-ever.There are six other days in the week for you to recieve your mail, most of our genertaion uses socail media to connect with each other and pay bills.
I'm really not sure if anyone really cares about Saturday delivery because they would just get it by Monday anyways.
I get a lot of my mail Saturday, I really don't want to wait one day late if it's important.
My Saturday is my time to chill, but still keeping check with the family is always good.
No, not really! We check our mail after school ;and school isn't on Saturdays!
I think it matters because what if something is super important and it's in letter form? Sometimes deadlines are on Saturdays and you can't get to it because the letters won't be sent until Sunday and you desperately need it.
yeah it matters my friend that moved usely sends stuff to me saturdays.thats why i think it matters.
Not having mail on Saturday really wouldn't effect me because on Saturdays I hardly can get out of the bed, let alone write a letter. It might effect businesses though.
if the people take over the business you dont know who's hands your mail is in. If it was Christmas or you birth day you would be mad if you got a card what said $20 inside but there was nothing in it. In august we are going to have no more deliveries onSAturday which means you might be late paying your bills.You never Know in this world.
Kids dont think of how much there parents work to pay there bills so if there late getting the bill you got to pay an extra fee what is not fair.
It doesn't really bother me because I mostly e-mail or text my family or friends. It will take a little time to get used to it though, but with us still some what battling the fiscal cliff I think it will be a good way for the government to save money.
This is crazy, mail is the last true form of communication without technology or phones! we don't want it to fade away!
To me it matters a lot because if you're going to take away mail on Saturday, you might as well take it away on Monday or some other day. Besides, they've already stopped mail on Sunday. Soon they will stop delivering at all.
Since i have checks, college applications, and letters from my family in the mail, then it would affect me. Even though one day doesn't seem like a lot, it can disrupt someone's schedule.
I look forward to running down to the mailbox on the weekends, to see if I got a letter. In my family I am one of the few that actually receive "snail" mail. If I know something is coming soon, I want to get it as fast as i can; having to wait through the weekend just doesn't seem fair to me.
I think we should stop and not stop Saturday delivery. We should stop Saturday delivery because it will save us a few million dollars a year from not delivering Saturday mail. I think we should not stop Saturday delivery because some people might like getting mail on Saturdays and we might have things to be picked up from your mailbox on Saturdays.
I think it matters if they stop saturday mail because I get things on saturday.
It would definitely matter, at least to me. While I enjoy email, as it lets me communicate with friends and family quickly, it isn't the same as having a tangible letter in my hands. You'll find it's harder to keep a treasured letter or note when all it is is a bit of data in a computer.
It will not matter to me because some people gets more time to work and make thier money.
I don't think USPS should, I like getting letters on Saturday. There is no point of getting rid of it when we would still receive packages and stuff. It's just...CRAZY.
I think this would be better because then mailmen would be home with their family's and could relax on weekends instead of working this would not affect me
I think that mailing mail on Saturday is a waste of money because it gets mailed everyday anyways and you'll get your Saturday mail on Sunday .
I think that skipping Saturday isn't that big of a deal because you get mail everyday. You will just now have more mail on Sundays then usual.
it shouldn't matter just another day where you don't have to check your mail
This is a tough one. E-mail dominates letters, but you cannot e-mail a package.
If the U.S. Postal Service stops Saturday delivery it would not matter to me because I can just wait to the delivery truck delivers it the next day unless you are waiting for something really important.
Yeah I think they should still do it on Saturdays because the banks close early and some people need to get there but cant in time so they go on Saturdays and also some people need mail on Saturdays like bills and stuff from family.
Not having deliveries on Saturday is no big deal to people of the 21st century. People email, text, or call if something needs to be shared. I can't remember the last time I sent a letter.
I think that they should keep doing the Saturday delivery. Cause maybe someone you know is in the Army and you are expecting a letter from them. That would not be fair to ether of them.
It would matter to people who need or are expecting something important. That could mean important information such as overdue bills, reply within 5 days of reciving, or other such mail. This could be trouble for some people in April.
I think that letters should be sent on Saturdays because it has been around for so many years. Why should it changed now. Lets keep history!
