I like USPS too. RFD isn't an option, so my mail goes to a post office in a nearby town. I often forget to check my mail and they just put it into a box for me. Usually, maybe once every two weeks, I'll go down and get it. If not, they hold it until the box is full and then they call me and tell me I have mail and should come get it.

The other delivery companies just drop my stuff off there or, if they aren't open, they'll drop it at the gas station/convenience store. UPS has gotten stuck on my lawn, twice. FedEx can never find the house. So, it is just easier this way and the post office has been very accommodating.

It is one of the great joys of living in a very rural area.
