I live in a major city and I would actually miss Saturday mail delivery. Saturday is the only day that I am home during the day whereas I can actually chat with the postal worker who delivers the mail and build upon our rapport. My postal worker actually makes me aware of certain community issues since he is out and about in the neighborhoods. He would let me know that criminals are stealing central air units before the crime statistics hit the everyblock.com website or my monthly local community police meeting. He also is another set of eyes and ears in the community when there are issues or when seniors need well being checks. He knows what’s normal in a neighborhood and what is not.
I hate to see anyone without a job, but I know change is necessary in order to become more efficient. Since I work during the weekdays, I wouldn’t miss mail delivery during the week. I would prefer to have Saturday delivery and miss 1 or 2 weekdays. So mail delivery on Tues, Wed, Thurs, and Saturday would be the best scenario for me.
