most of us mail so little personally it is really nothing special . it is like when morton raises the price on a container of salt . it will really only effect those who still insist on doing things via checks and snail mail. a business may feel it a lot more

Which is probably why it was a good idea to post this in the business forum.

I've got a box of stamps from a previous business that will last me the rest of my life considering how many things I mail today.

So there's this comedian I heard on XM comedy radio. Hilarious.

He says who's complaining about the price of stamps, for crying out loud?

I walk into the post office with a letter in my hand, and I say I want you to take this to Alaska. And I'll pay you 50 cents.

Anyone complaining about that, geez.

How about Christmas cards which have already been dying a slow death?

Outside of a parcel every now and then, I probably mail a dozen things a year. I send my invoices by e-mail. I remit payments to vendors electronically. So the cost of postage is a big shrug of the shoulders to me.
