Does the United States Postal Service Have Your Respect?

Positive Comments about Mailing by USPS

The United States Postal Service employs more than 625,000 Americans, receives no tax payer money, travels thousands of miles to deliver an envelope for less than fifty cents, USPS has a Mail Center Security, and still can't seem to win the respect of some people. Here's a little story as an example of how sometimes, the USPS just can't win.

A nice young postal worker (yes, they do exist), at a small local post office was sorting through some envelopes and came across one that was addressed:



Upon opening the undeliverable envelope, the postal worker found a letter from a little old lady who said she had never asked God for anything in her life, but she was desperately in need of $100 to buy Christmas presents for her grandchildren. She wondered if God could send her the money.

Well, the young postal worker was deeply touched by the letter and took up a collection among her co-workers and managed to collect $90. She mailed it to the return address on the envelope and felt joyful for being able to help.

A few weeks passed when another letter came addressed to God from the same little old lady. It read:

''Dear God,

Thank you for the money. I deeply appreciate it. However, I only received $90 of the $100 you sent. Those bandits at the Post Office must have stolen the other $10''

So, we decided to try and even the scales a little and post some of the more interesting things about the United States Post Office on the DocuSend web site. Some contain useful information about services, and some are just interesting and fun. For instance, did you know that the first colonial post office was established in Boston in 1639 was also a bar? In addition to sending letters, they also advertised ''Strong Water.''

So, visit DocuSend's new ''Postal Points'' and decide for yourself if the Post Office deserves your respect. And please help us grow in the right direction by posting your comments. We'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for doing business with us.
