Australia Post.

Everyone in Australia knows how much our postal system sucks.

Late mail. Mail that never arrives. Wet mail. Destroyed mail. Half ripped mail from being shoved in a post box that's too small. This list goes on..

Lately mail from my work in Adelaide, South Australia, has been slow like a bitch to the eastern states (2 working days delivery, they claim).

So imagine how much I laughed when I received a work call from the Australia Post accounts section (we have a monthly account for all the envelopes we buy) saying our account was overdue.

I check the date the cheque was sent, which was a week ago.

I said 'it was sent with your service.'

She said 'oh. that has never happened before..'

I said 'it happens to us all the time.'

HAHA-- sent to Australia Post via Australia Post. &never got there. hilarious.

SIDE NOTE-- I read their annual report not long ago.. 3% of mail sent by Australia Post never reaches its' destination. That's a freakin' huge number.

I wish they had competition in the marketplace.
