singapore post  

before christmas over a month ago, D (in hong kong) informed me happily that my christmas pressie had been packed off and sent out. after a month of thumb-twiddling, it became apparent that the package was never gonna reach its recipient. D and i mourned the loss over a coupla emails, since these were my new runners which he had painstakingly chosen for me in the US. these shoes travelled the world from chicago to new york to hong kong. i felt so distressed because of his wasted efforts... sigh. and so, i resumed my search for a pair of runners that would fit me... though to no avail still.

and then... look what came in the mail yesterday.

this is a reminder. which means there was supposed to be a first notice beforehand. that never came at all... not a shred or a shadow. god knows how long the package has been sitting in the post office for. fuckin'ell.

i am relieved, yes. very much so. :)

but still - fuck you, singapore post. fuck you very much.

feelin': indescribableindescribable

I suggest you complain to SingPost! They have a reputation for being exceptionally obsequious towards irate customers.

really? heh... i can't see how they're gonna make it up to me (or D) though! give us free postage for a year? :D

but no matter what, heads are gonna roll at the P.O. tomorrow!

hey - maybe someone at the post office has been considerate enough to wear them in for you for the last month...

That's really weird for SingPost, but I guess we were lucky our postman was a pretty decent guy.

Argh at late delivery but yay at finally getting it!

I've realised that all postal services fuck your parcels and letters up. Always. Plus they never like to take the blame for it, saying that it is the sender's responsibility instead. What kind of excuse is that, when you have given your item into the hands of the postal service?

Thank god you recieved your parcel. One of the few lucky ones amongst those who don't recieve their mail till years later.
