Postal surprise

Last week I had ordered a ATB 5 oz puck, 2017 Missouri Ozark.
Hoping to arrive on Saturday, but for sure show up today (Tuesday).
Much to my surprise it arrived yesterday! Yes we had mail delivery on Monday 16th. A Federal holiday.
For what it’s worth, we also received a few bills 🙁 .
Did anyone else get mail on Monday?

    Had a package to collect and google search said the post office was open but found it closed when I went over. :(

    "Any chance it was delivered late saturday and you missed it?"

    Nope, watched the mail truck as it went around the subdivision. The driver wasn't our regular carrier. I figured it was someone who wanted some overtime.

    I know that sometimes they do packages in separate runs and sometimes on off days. Maybe they saw your bills at the PO and decided to bring them along with your package.

    I received a package yesterday (Monday) a priority package from The Royal Mail (collector stamps). I didn't expect delivery on the holiday, wasn't home, and it was left on the front step in the rain. I have asked that if they have to walk up to the house to please put packages inside the storm door. The USPS has been terrible the last couple of months. They don't deliver for days but they can deliver this on a holiday. To keep it coin related I hope an anticipated package from The Royal Mint requires a signature.

    "Maybe Amazon delivered it........"

    Nope, was bought off eBay.

    Although, I have seen USPS out here on Sunday's delivering Amazon Prime orders.
    This was definitely not the case in this time. Mail truck stopped at each house holds mailbox.

    I realize some might be calling BS on this post, but here is the tracking email I received soon after it was delivered.

    Why don't you just call the Post Office and find out?

    A very strange occurrence indeed. Maybe your mail was not delivered Saturday and the USPS got a carrier to deliver the mail on the Holiday.

    Not an unusual happening. One time during my early days at the Post Office, a route on a Saturday came back undelivered for reasons unknown today.

    The Station Supervisor asked me if I wanted to deliver it on Sunday. He told me I could start any time I wanted to. I refused, and assume that someone else did the Sunday delivery.

    USPS mail collection bins across Hampton Roads are boarded up.

    The mailbox along 21st Street in Norfolk, near Aldi and across the street from Panera, is wrapped in packing tape.

    There are also three bins at Chesapeake Square, near the Post Office on Portsmouth Blvd., that are stuffed with cardboard and taped as well.

    News 3 has reported on incidents where people have broken into similar mailboxes.

    "Unfortunately, everything that is deposited in the blue box could end up in the criminals' hands," said David Maimon, Criminal Justice Professor at Georgia State University.

    Maimon's team told Consumer Reporter John Matarese that thousands of mailboxes across the country are tampered with every year and mail is stolen.

    Stolen mail could be a reason why our local bins are taped shut.

    So, if you were planning on sending mail by way of the collection box, you do have other options.

    Leave it in your home mailbox. For added protection, you can put it in right before the mailperson comes, if you know their normal timeframe

    Take it inside the Post Office. Even if there is a line, this is the safest way to know the mail is in the right hands
