    Don't speak too soon! Luckily, I pay most of my bills electronically.

    I use at least 2 stamps a month, but never more than 6.

    You guys actually use snail mail?
    How last century. :spit:

    I mail bills every month too, grin and bear it.
    One thing Ben Franklin left out of his certainty quote, "taxes, stamp increases, and death"
     
  11. I remember when stamps were a QUARTER. Those 2 cents are really gonna put the screws to my wallet.
     
  12. My theory about paying bills online versus paying by mail:

    1.) Each year, more people will pay their bills online,
    which means
    2.) Fewer people will be buying stamps,
    which means
    3.) The price of stamps will have to go up even more,
    which means
    4.) Fewer people will mail anniversary, birthday and Christmas cards,
    which means
    5.) More of us will feel neglected/unloved,
    which means
    6.) A more apathetic nation,
    which means
    7.) We won't care about the price of stamps!

    Aren't y'all glad I explained this to you in such a clear manner? :bag:

    Either that, or the USPS will start offering internet service. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em!
     
  15. True, true. ;)

    But think: If someone ever invents a transporter device, like on Star Trek, that's the end of the Postal service, and most trucking and shipping service. :eek:

    It works ok, but not great. Seems it's like the one in the Terminator movies. You can only send living tissue through it, but not inanimate objects. I tried to use it to transport my rig to a gig, but it didn't work. So I figured, ok I'll use it to get myself to the gig then. But that didn't work too well either. I arrived on stage minus my bass, and nekkid :eek:
