I now know why USPS is always late

I was a bit groggy this morning and managed to leave for work without my cellphone. Talk about feeling naked, feeling out of touch. So of course I had to leave the office at 11:00 to run home for "lunch" and grab it. On the way back I got stuck behind the worlds slowest moving USPS delivery truck. Now when I say slowest moving I mean 10 MPH and not an iota faster. At first I thought it was looking for an address or a place to park and was willing to be patient. But it kept plowing ahead, taking every turn I needed to to get to work. After following it for nearly a mile I finally found an opportunity to take a turn it was not and escape it slow slow clutches. REALLY NOW I know the US government is a slow moving organization, but does that mean it's delivery trucks need to go 10MPH down city streets with a speed limit of 35 MPH?
