Pack­ing out the post of­fice queues

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

AS there are peo­ple who per­sist in tak­ing mul­ti­ple pack­ets/parcels to the post of­fice shortly be­fore it closes on a Satur­day (week­days also), isn’t it time all post of­fices had a sep­a­rate counter for parcels?

Hav­ing stood in a queue on Satur­day at Field End Road Post Of­fice, while a par­tic­u­larly self­ish in­di­vid­ual slowly pulled out item af­ter item to be weighted, priced, etc. an­other cus­tomer com­pletely dis­re­garded the board, which we must queue be­hind, and went straight to the counter, in com­plete obliv­ion of the queu­ing public.

The fact that there are only two op­er­a­tional coun­ters made it all the more frus­trat­ing! When I com­plained to the counter clerk she said “He is a reg­u­lar cus­tomer” (mul­ti­ple par­cel per­son) – to which I replied “We are all cus­tomers!”

Of re­cent, vis­its to the post of­fice are be­com­ing quite an or­deal! MRS MT BEAR L Hamil­ton Cres­cent Har­row
