SNAIL MAIL

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

AUS­TRALIA Post – hmmm, what can I say?

Prices have gone up and apart from the stamp, you now need to buy a sticker, es­pe­cially if you want your mail to be de­liv­ered "within three to four days".

Well, be­fore this all came into force, I posted my Christ­mas cards in early De­cem­ber, try­ing to beat the rush.

Would you be­lieve one of the cards I sent from Perth to Bus­sel­ton, on De­cem­ber 8, did not ar­rive un­til Jan­uary 14. I could have walked the dis­tance in a shorter time than the post took to get there.

So, heaven help us now. Name and ad­dress sup­plied.
