Mail Time

Here’s one that I’ve been meaning to ask: what time do Pingers get their Snail Mail each day?

Back when I was living with my folks, our carrier was consistent: we received our daily mail between 3 and 5pm. But when I moved out, I found that late afternoon seemed pretty darned late to get mail… and started receiving it around 10:30am. Nowadays, it usually happens before noon – but occasionally comes very, very late.

I do like getting mail in the morning, by the way. And I still like getting real mail even though I’m a huge fan of email – there’s something good about it. Unless it’s a bunch of bills. -pm

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
