So, I’m moving. In less than a week, and finally getting around* to changing my address with the US Postal Service.
So I thought to myself…“I wonder if I can change my addrss online? Sure seems like it’d be convenient and cheaper for the post office, since they wouldn’t have to deal with the paper forms”. Go to usps.gov, and there’s a link “change your address”. How nice…I’ll just put my information into this form and there we go.
Old address, new address, submit…
“You will be charged a $1 credit card processing fee when this form is successfully processed”. What? I can drive down the street, pick up the form, drop it in the box and do this for free. Why should I pay.
Oh, but it’s only $1. Sure, only $1. But I’m still not going to pay for what I can get for free with a 5 minute drive.
It just doesn’t make sense to me, but maybe I’m missing something.
