With the new APCs at the post office allowing packages to be post marked 24/7, much time ought not be needed.

Pardon me, I'm rotfl at a squirrel molesting the bird feeder hanging on our balcony!

That's true.. but I was thinking back to when I had a small child and a full time job... getting errands done sometimes took awhile. I think giving a few extra days is a good thing.

Sure, makes sense.

At the same time, what are we going to do if someone causes a delay for whatever reason? Spam their PM/E-mail box? Of course I am sure all who participate have no intention of doing that, but alas, life can cause twists and turns that cause unintentional delays . . . . . .

(I speak from experience on this . . . . . )

Yeah I agree pdswife. With my baby and my work schedule I can pretty much only get to the post office on Saturdays so a 2-3 day turn around time would be tough for me unless I get it close to the weekend.

Okay, 5 days, but if you want to mail it out earlier, that's okay too.
And, BigDog made a great point! Those automated package weigh/pay stations take all of the wait time out at the post office! I love those!

Do we have any more takers?

I don't think we have those by me. What are they? They sound cool.

They aren't here in our neck of the woods either - and I do mean neck of the woods!
