I elected to put off buying stamps as I had one left and I planned to hand deliver both the Condo association and water bills in the future. Everything else I plan to do, bill paying wise, will be done done either online or by phone!
Seriously, when you talk about poorly run companies (ones that are affiliated with the government), you need not wander too very far before encountering disasters like the US Postal System! While other delivery services out there are thriving, the Post System is failing, utterly. FedEx, UPI and the Postal System are all for profit companies. The only difference is that the former two do not routinely have their pockets picked by the Feds, even while the employees in that system are almost impossible to fire, no matter how bad their individual performances.... The US Postal System. A bad deal for America!
