One time I bought a buy it now small part for my Triumph on epay. Never got it. Contacted the guy to tell him and he said he sent it out USPS. He was a good guy and sent me another one, which I received. 10 months later the first one showed up. I had kept the guys contact info and asked him if he wanted it back but he said keep it.

It makes perfect sense once you find out that out of the 75 billion yearly operating expenses, 52 billion go towards direct compensation and benefits, and only 6.6 billion towards transportation. There's also workers comp costs tied to those salaries. So, even though the price of driving the truck has gone down, the price of the person doing the driving has not, it would go up some due to pay raises and inflation. To put things in perspective, the average USPS clerk makes $25/hour.

But they work SO hard, it takes so much effort to put the mail in the wrong mail box and God forbid we can't expect them to close the door on the mail box.

I need to get a job working (or is that not working) for the USPS.

Will that also affect the local charge?

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
