I was wondering why this is? Is it because they don't pick mail up on certain days?? But on either Mondays and Thursdays or Thursdays and Fridays I get at least 2 letters. Was just wondering if he was writing on days that they don't pick mail up.

I usually don't get mail on Tuesday and sometimes Wednesday, because the prison where my son is does not go to the post office on Saturday and Sunday. It is closed both days. His mail to me usually takes only 2 days to get to me.

Same with where my husband is. No mail on Sat and Sunday and they pick up in the mornings on weekdays. So if a letter isn't in the box by Thursday night or early Friday morning, it won't go out until monday :)

Same here.. no Tuesday or Wednesday mail.. I think it's because they can only send and receive mail Monday through Friday

It is. I know in Texas, at least. They only have mail Mon-Friday. So I get mail pretty much every day but Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Unless there are holidays, etc. I also know when he's going to receive my mail, usually, by when I send it off. I always try to make sure he has something to open on Fridays and Mondays.

I have never gotten any mail on Tuesday. I always get mail on Thursdays. That's about the only day of the week that is guaranteed. I've tried to figure out the mail system, but realize they don't have one. It seems like they send mail out when they feel like it these days.

Yes the mail you get on Monday is usually mailed out on Friday and if you do get mail on Wednesday it was mailed on Monday.

He is in Texas too, it takes 3 days for my letters to get to him. And vice versa.
