All of us are creatures of habit while some are more flexible and adapt to the changes when the time is right. The others are, well, keep up to the old ways no matter what.
Most of my neighbors are the former. They keep posting on the NextDoor website, complaining about their lost or misdelivered mail and efficiently labeling the Post Office bad.
Who still pays their bills by snail mail? My neighbors, that’s who.
So the bill payments are sent by USPS and then get promptly lost. Yet the chain of events continue in the same pattern. Bill payment is sent by snail mail — it gets lost — complain. Complaining to the USPS online falls on deaf ears. Then my neighbors hop in their cars and deliver said bill payment manually.
I can relate as I have been there, however since I switched to the online bill paying, the process goes ever so smoothly. I keep track of this on Excel, take screenshots to keep as a proof of payment, and that’s it. Have never had problems with that.
And my neighbors are still behind. I understand they might be concerned about transmitting their info electronically but how about snail mail? It has all their info, including bank account number, name, address and whatnot. All this has a great chance of ending up in the wrong hands.
What’s more, New York Times reports that the Postal Service now takes a photo of every letter and package mailed in the U.S. and provides that to law enforcement upon request.
Still love snail mail?
