I heard recently that you were considering cutting back on home delivery and that Saturday mail might not be around much longer. I applaud your cost-cutting measures, but I have a request. As long as you’re eliminating a day’s mail, could you make it Tuesday?
Tuesday mail is never any fun. It’s nothing more than left over circulars that didn’t quite fit into the Sunday paper. It’s coupons for stuff I don’t buy, menus for restaurants I don’t patronize and floppy, flimsy little pieces of paper from nail salons and cut-rate roofers. It never even makes it into my house, so you could save yourself a lot of time and effort by not delivering it at all.
In fact, you don’t need to deliver much of anything to me, except the following:
- Invitations and announcements, preferably with really fancy calligraphy on the envelope
- Thank-you notes, thoughtfully written on interesting stationary
- Window envelopes through which I can clearly read: Pay to the order of Here In Franklin
- Notices that my insurance is about to be canceled because I tossed out the bill after mistaking it for junk mail
I can pretty much do without everything else.
So, do we have a deal?
