I'm hoping I'm not doing anything wrong here. We talk about UPS, FEDEX, and USPS all the time, so I don't think I'm doing anything wrong in posting this. We have for years paid our bills on the day we get them, or the very next day. We don't hold any of them, we pay them promptly upon receipt. Lately we've run into two problems. A: The bills being quite a bit late arriving. B: Paying the bills as much as two weeks and sometimes a little more ahead of billing date, and they are not getting to the billing department on time. This is not a complaint, just a question of has anyone on the forum noticed a similar trend. If so, and it is a problem, we're going to have to take corrective action, and come up with a new plan for paying our bills. If the US Mail is not working, I'll have to decide what will require the least amount of intrusion into our bank accounts in order to do the everyday normal business of living. Sometimes you guys come up with different ways of doing things, that I haven't even considered. I'm not old school, I'm like I was there when they delivered the lumber to build the school that old school people came from.
