    People without direct deposit CHOOSE to make getting their money difficult. I’l pray that they recover, but I just can’t feel sorry about that particular self inflicted hardship.

  • common sense

    They also PAY you to do your job. They aren’t asking you to “feel sorry” for them. Just to do your job. The rest is none of your business.

    Whose job are you referring to? I assure you it is not mine.

    So sorry- I assumed you worked for the USPS. If you do, then it’s obvious whose job I was referring to. If you don’t work for the USPS, I’m afraid I don’t understand why you think your opinion matters here.

    My comment had nothing to do with the USPS and their obligation to deliver mail. It is likely that hundreds of USPS employees are themselves displaced and not living in their own homes. I think it is safe to assume that many local post offices were flooded and may be unusable leaving some postal employees without a workplace for now. God willing, I hope that normal delivery service can be restored but I doubt that will happen as quickly as most would like to see.

    I do feel sorry for those who have not signed up for direct deposit or the few who don’t have that option available. Having direct deposit simply means that you do not need to rely on anyone or any service to find you to give you a piece of paper that you then need to take somewhere else to deposit and pay your bills. It is an archaic form of money transfer which is hindering the lives of many of the hurricane’s victims.
