Speedy snail mail

Last Saturday, I was in quite a rush to get some VHS tapes and DVDs to my friends and family. It seems the U.S. Postal Service was in a rush too — my sister in Berkeley and my friend in Connecticut both received their packages on Monday.

That’s technically one business day after I sent the item. It’s practically overnight delivery — albeit with a Sunday in between.

I’m impressed. I’m slightly less impressed with my own response time — two of my friends got tapes of shows that aired last spring. Oh well, my sister is able to catch up with the new season of Battlestar Galactica that aired until a few weeks ago.
