Re: Do You Carry A Checkbook?

Now that sorting is automated and my ks mail is sorted in texas, it takes longer than ever for a letter to get anywhere.

If I mail from Liberal ks to Ulysses ks  (70 miles)  it will be sorted in Amarillo Texas and sent to wichita ks for sorting and sent from wichita to Ulysses.... where my elec company offices are.............. was 3 days hand sorting ... now 10-12 days     So round trip ---sending bills and paying bills ---possibly a 24 day round trip  for  70 miles....

 

If we reduce delivery to three days a week, will that monthly bill cycle take over 30 days................ logic would say over 40 days........?????

 

At what point does a system just collapse.

 

 

In front of me........... the telephone bill........ for residence

Basic service plan/no long distance carrier ..............$27 / mo.

NO calls made

Surcharges, federal and local taxes...........................15.22 / mo.

Total....................................                                       42.22 /mo

 

Business line to a shop

Basic service........ w long distance career....................$35.00 / mo

No calls 

surcharges federal and state taxes.................................32.26 / mo

total monthly charge .....................................................67.26/mo

 

 

Another system headed for a collapse
