Most I agree with, this is pure baloney, or rather some folks believe this but it's simply not true. UPS is slower AND more expensive. I can give examples, but as much as I hate to say it, USPS has made my business successful. We send 15 pound boxes all over the USA (including PR and islands) for $10. 1-4 days, depending on distance. Canada and Mexico, $25. All the rest of the world, $39 and they handle the customs and no brokerage fees. Frankly UPS and FedEx couldn't touch that. OK OK you can't send OIL!! (sucks). UPS 4 quarts of SAE 250 racing gear oil to Europe - over $200!!
and all while losing over 5 billion a year.....perhaps there is a connection?

22 was definitely right unfortunately we lost all the movie rental stores to Netflix I can’t stand not having a movie on disk so it hasn’t went extinct to me yet.

Responding to a decade old topic helps no one.
