    Glad it's not just me, but sorry that it happens to you too. I fully blame the USPS. They have gotten very lazy - I have seen the postal carrier drive up to our building and leave again without delivering a package. When I call about it, they lie and say that no one was at home even though they never so much as rang the doorbell.

    I live in England, I don't use the US Postal Service, I use Royal Mail.

    However, their Posties are worse than useless a lot of the time.

    Moving on, another thing that winds me up immensely, non UK call centres, Virgin are a nightmare IMO, the signal on the Network is rubbish in most parts of Sheffield, and the customer service is a joke, and according to their help forum I'm not the only one with complaints.

    Like about 3 weeks ago I sent a PM to one of their staff to check if I can get Virgin TV at the Flat, a complete package with movies and Sky Sports because I watch WWE, and they're still yet to get back to me, so much for "We'll get back to you within 5 days".

    Why is it strange that an atheist cares a lot about injustice? Just because atheists don't worship some 50-foot guy with a beard sitting on some cloud doesn't mean they have no sense of right or wrong.

    I would argue that an atheist that has a strong sense of right & wrong is more conscientious because they had to decide & develop that belief on their own rather than have it handed to them in a canned form from a religion.

    That's not to say religious people can't be the same, mind.

    Atheism is a belief system that cannot be proven.

    True, which is why I describe myself as agnostic personally...

    I once got a piece of mail that was addressed :
    ***** (my first name)
    Union Office
    Manchester

    It was delivered next day after posting. My experience of British posties is that they are really pretty good. I am not so sure about their US counterparts however.

    The US postal service, IMO, started going down hill after the internet became popular. People were relying less and less on snail mail, so postage prices went up and customer service went down.:(

    How do the goods get from the online retailer to the customer? Carrier Pigeon? No, they use "Snail Mail" :D

    It makes me angry when people judge people for how they identify (e.g. their sexuality and gender identity).
