Planned obsolescence?

After submitting this letter, I went to the local Ketchum Post office to pick up a package that was too large for my box. Since I knew they always closed at 5:30, I went immediately after work, which ends at 5 p.m. Imagine my surprise, when I saw the lobby already locked down, learning that they cut back their hours and now close at 5 p.m.!

Therefore, any working stiff who gets off work at five, cannot pickup a package or even buy a stamp, unless they go to the Post Office before work or at lunch. I wonder if this is the case with other Post Offices in the area.
