United States Postal Service
800-275-8777

The United States Postal Service (USPS) was originally formed in 1971 contrary to the belief that it’s been around for hundreds of years. An incredibly intricate network of addresses, rural routes, international destinations, and unlikely homesteads have been the cornerstone of the USPS system since it began but has become even more complicated in the last few decades.

Did you know that when USPS began, minimal address information was needed for a letter or package to be delivered to the right place? Sometimes just a person’s name, street name, and state were provided by the sender! The post office prided itself on knowing the community and allowing them to keep in touch with loved ones, easily and affordably. Things have changed and USPS has changed with the times; understanding that people are more likely to stay in touch via the internet, USPS has been concentrating more on package delivery in recent years, offering still, the most affordable shipping rates out there!

    I thought the same thing!

  • Clara

    Yes! You can get pricing from their site and it’s really convenient. You just need to know the size of your package and the weight. You can even estimate time and track packages there too!

    I worked for USPS for years but I ended up moving to an area without an office close by so I couldn’t transfer. It was seriously a fun job where I lived and I’ll tell you… Those people work HARD! And since the post office is government run, we had great benefits and pay. Vacation and all but we had a good fun group of us working and we were always able to make the patrons happy because we liked what we did.

    If you ever see a frustrated employee at the post office, it’s not because of the job itself, it’s probably because they’ve been dealing with jerks all day and their happiness level eventually started to plumet. Yours would too after so long. So, remember, be nice to the people that are sending and receiving your mail!
