    for FedEx and UPS to use the mail.

    I'm not, though I'm not in a major city. I'm off a main highway, in a decently sized small city, in a densely populated area of the country.

    Just about everything I've ordered lately starts out FedEx or UPS, but it gets delivered to the door by the mailman.

    The only things that don't are high ticket items, larger packages, or things that require a signature.

    Everything else? USPS does the last leg. It lets things get delivered on Saturday without those outrageous Saturday delivery fees that FedEx/UPS charge.

    FedEx and UPS would be screwed if the USPS went away. Seriously screwed. And so would most of the country.
