Netflix DVDs Will Only Be Delivered On Weekdays As Of August, Says Netflix-Delivering Organization

"The financially struggling U.S. Postal Service plans to stop delivering mail on Saturdays starting August 1, the agency is set to announce Wednesday. This means that for the first time Americans will receive mail only five days a week, a significant shift for the storied mail agency, which has suffered tens of billions of dollars in losses in recent years with the advent of the Internet and e-commerce. Post offices would remain open on Saturdays so that customers can drop off mail or packages, buy postage stamps, or access their post office boxes, officials said. Hours likely would be reduced at thousands of smaller locations, they said."
—Now you'll have no reason to go downstairs during the daylight hours on Saturdays. Unless you've somehow run out of liquor, in which case, Jesus, haven't I taught you anything about emergency planning over the years?

I'm not an alcoholic, I'm an alco-prepper.

This is as good time as any to remind everyone that the USPS's operations are not government subsidized, but it is still forbidden from changing its rates without Congressional approval!

Also: The last mile of UPS and FedEx deliveries to many homes in rural areas are fielded out to the USPS, because the USPS by law has to deliver to every home in America and thus they already have money-losing delivery networks out there.

This has all the elements of a quintessential Awl post: Tongue-in-cheek title, topical quote, booze, rhetorical question.
