    I've been getting Sunday deliveries from the USPS for at least 6 months. Amazon Prime.

    Sundays are shot. Holidays are shot. What's next? Everything anymore seems to be ruined by "demand" from people who want the world to revolve around them.

    Places opening on Thanksgiving and Christmas day now; even if I needed something I've always refused to do business on days I think they should be closed. If everyone followed suit, things might actually go back to the way they should be but I'll never hold my breath on it.

    Back in the early 1900s the Post Office actually delivered 7 days a week.

    You wouldn't by chance have any proof behind this (false) statement?

    They have UPS to thank for delivering seven days a week. We have ourselves to blame for working weekends.

    Let me find an article. I saw it on Modern Marvels a few years back.


    But I do find it hilarious you require a link for a statement. You love to throw out misinformation.

    You were 8 in 1992. How do you know how many days per week they worked?

    Sounds like they once found their sense then lost it.

    So you get paid and you bitch about delivering on Sunday? I own three stores and we are open every Sunday!

    From 1810, mail was delivered seven days a week. In 1828, local religious leaders noticed a decline in Sunday-morning church attendance because of local post offices' doubling as gathering places. These leaders appealed to the government to intervene and close post offices on Sundays. The government, however, declined, and mail was delivered 7 days a week until 1912.

    Did this really bother you enough you had to make an account just to say that? Sounds like the point still went clean over your head.
