For several years now, I've been handling most of my bills and other financial transactions online. Unfortunately, there are still a handful of transactions each year that require shipment of a little piece of paper somewhere, so every once in a while, I have to buy a stamp.
Because I use stamps so infrequently, I can never find the last book I bought, and I have to buy a new book of stamps every time I need one. So every item I have to put in the mail costs me about eight bucks.
Can we all please meet up in the 21st Century, and dispense with this "First Class Letter" crap? And while we're at it, can we get rid of checkbooks?
