Drowning in mail

I don't know why the local post office (not just local, but I'm only talking about local because I have seen it firsthand) is in such a difficult situation, but it is.

It has come to the point that they have piles and piles of mail bags filled with mail and packages that they simply do not have the time or manpower to sort through and organize.

I would guess that they are responsible for too broad of an area with not enough staff. It does look, to me at least, that there has been a significant increase in the number of packages people are getting delivered by mail.

If anyone thought the postal service was being killed off by email, due to people no longer sending snail mail, it is the significant increase in online shopping that is going to save the postal service and keep it in business.

Or, as you can see in the images below, maybe it will drown them.

Here are a few images from my trip to the post office this morning..

There is more than what you see here, but this is what I photographed. When these two guys (1 shown in picture) came delivering more mail bags and boxes, I pointed to the piles and asked if they don't already have enough backlogged. They laughed and just continued to go about their business of dropping off the new mailbags..

Maybe a yeshiva, a seminary, or a youth group (or anyone else) might consider volunteering to spend a few hours a week to sort through all those bags and get it organized as part of their chessed programs... It would be a tremendous chessed for the community - so many people must be waiting for packages or mail that are just sitting there in the mailbags waiting to be sorted!
