The Philippine Postal Office - Slower Than a Snail

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

Today, I received a mail from Banco de Oro stating some innovations in their system. Upon my seeing of the date, I was devastated. It was dated December 1, 2010. A mail sent on December 1 and was posted on January 20, 2011 is received one month later. Gosh! This is why I hate the Philippine Postal. They are slower than a snail. The term snail mail doesn't even fit them.

The good thing is, at least, I was able to receive the letter. Once, my cousin sent a letter to our cousins in Brunei. The letter hasn't been received until today. It was sent seven years ago. I wonder where it went? To the trash?

There could have been a more reliable postal system instead of having a lame one. This is why private postage is ruling the market. The government is too busy with its endeavor for self-promotion of its officials while all others are suffering so much.

I may be over-reacting but it is true. Haven't you noticed the frequent hikes of prices nowadays? Just a week ago, load wallets rose. Now I need to pay an extra peso for a ten peso load. Now, that's devastating. Even the b1 meal at jollibee rose to 60 from 57. I am not a stingy person. I am only concerned of what's gonna be happening next. Maybe in a year, we will be paying gold for water. Hence, it is true. The poor are getting poorer and the rich are getting richer. Mark this, noone stays at the middle.
