Yah, I know. First Class and likely Standard Rate will no longer be Saturday deliveries. But there are a lot of other 13 oz (or less) items that, if needed on a Saturday will have to ship via much more expensive channels.
As a rule, checks, even if deposited on a Saturday, still aren't posted 'til Monday — as if the Saturday deposit never happened. But some banks will actually clear a Saturday deposit by COB of the following Monday.
I'm not suggesting that people will die by the dozen or businesses will fold over the weekend. What's more irritating is the utter stupidity of what's causing this, and the fact that it didn't have to be. That and the POV of some people who think that because it's no skin off their nose, it's no skin off anyone else's. <-- Not pointed at anyone (on the mainland).
