Pat, I wouldn't complain too much about the US Postal Service. Take a
look at what the mail service is like in your neighbor to the north.

Canada Post doesn't deliver on Saturdays. If you buy a home in a new
subdivision, you will NEVER get mail delivery to your door. If you
build a house on a vacant lot, in between 2 houses that have mail
delivery, you still will NEVER have mail delivery. You will have to
go to a "super-mailbox", essentially a post office box somewhere
within a several block radius of your house.
