United States Postal Service Complaint - Waste due to Redesign
Recently I tried to use an older Priority Mail box that I had in my mailing supplies. The box was returned to me because it was "too old and out of date". The box it's self was fine ~ it was brand new and other than having an old design it's the same as the new boxes.
I was then told to THROW THEM AWAY!!! They can't be used for mailing anymore because they are obsolete?!?!?
This just totally rubs me the wrong way for so many reasons ~
Government Waste ~ Throw it away because it's not the current model?!?
Ecologically ~ How "Green" is it to throw away boxes that are still in perfectly fine?? Let's just add to the mountains of garbage that everyone throws away each and every minute of every day!
Recycle ~ I can't even use these boxes for other uses because it's against some Federal law to use them for anything but shipping mail ~ which I can't do because they are too old!
In these tough times when everyone is trying to do their part to save $'s, use what they have and preserve the Earth leave it to the government to come up with something so stupid and ridiculous as this!
It's no wonder the postal service is in trouble... with antiquated thinking like this it's a wonder they aren't drowning in debt...oh wait...THEY ARE!!!
Forrest Gump had it right....Stupid is as stupid does!
