    I pay all my bills online, including mortgage. However, I still love sending out mail (cards, gifts, etc.) and I absolutely love getting mail (except bills of course).


    What about you?

    Can you imagine a world with no mail?

    I participated in a 'mail study' for the USPS and was paid in stamps. I have enough stamps to last me a year.

    When my guitar was coming in UPS I kept checking the status online and looking out the window like a little kid.

    Same here. When I do I usually screw the first one up because I'm so out of practice. :mad:

    I'm a total Amazon addict (srs). And I know what Dave's talking about, too; I watch the tracking sites, and when something's "Out For Delivery" I'm all peeking out the windows, looking down the street.....

    I love getting and receiving "real mail" too, but I have to admit email has taken away a lot of that. I have a cousin who sends me postcards now and then, and an old buddy who writes me once or twice a year, but that's it. In fairness, my own handwriting is so awful I can't even read it myself sometimes, so I print.....:facepalm:

    Sarcasm is only funny when I do it....

    Edit: Actually, that attitude kinda illustrates the problem... People used to write things, and communicate, use words and stuff. Now it's all "lol wtf brb BTW howe doo yoo spel kat ?"

    Awwwwww...That's incredibly sweet of you, but I'll have to think on it fer a spell.....I promise it's not personal at all, but I'm super neurotic and have never given my personal info to anyone from the Interwebz.....:eek:

    One person asked me repeatedly, and when I couldn't bring myself to do it, I think that person was extremely hurt and/or offended, so please don't feel that way.......
