Post Office is its own worst enemy
So the Post Office wants to force consumers to use their services, do they? Has it ever stopped to ask why consumers started using other companies to deliver their items in the first place? Was it perhaps because their parcels, etc actually arrived at the intended destinations and on time when using a courier?
Our postal service is a joke and cards and parcels go missing more often than not. Perhaps the Post Office can explain how three cards, posted on the same day, to the same address, arrived at three different times, six months apart?
One arrived in three weeks, the second in two months and the third last week, four months after the recipient’s birthday.
I now send electronic birthday cards and instead of posting presents to my family I donate to charities in their name. The only thing I use the Post Office for is to renew my car licence and that is often a mission because they regularly run out of the paper used to print it.
Don’t expect me to use your postal services any time soon.
