Her Majesty's Fucking Royal Mail

Postby Arneb » Fri Nov 08, 2019 8:41 am

While on holiday in England, my daughter posted four postcards she had written for her grandparents, school class and best friend. She posted them on Thursday, Oct. 17, in Cambridge. The first postcard arrived in Berlin, Germany, today.

Now I do get that the mail can take a little longer between such tiny hamlets as Cambridge and Berlin, small isolated communities on opposite ends of the world, both located in hard-to-reach, remote areas, constantly being pummeled by the relentless elements of the harsh Northern deep autumn.

Still - more than three weeks for a postcard does seem a bit leisurely even considering that you won the Wars, both of them, and that Germany belongs to that hated foe of yours, the EU. My daughter wanted to brag about her postcard at school, and she's inconsolable.

Yep, they're shit and they know they are. But they don't care. They would have gone under years ago but Ebay and the like have kept them alive. We don't use them unless we absolutely have to.
Get it up ye.

I just saw a post card show up in Naperville, IL that was sent from Scotland in September. Two months!

And Naperville isn't even in Germany, but in a good country.
