Real snaaaaail mail

Remember the Pony Express delivering mail decades ago? That was slow. However, in 2018, with all the various improvements and technological advances, mail in a developed country takes just two or three days. Trinidad and Tobago today’s mail delivery takes a month and sometimes more!

Our postal service is just horrible. It takes at least a month to get your utility bills and your credit card statements long after the due date and the banks then charge you fees for late payments. Many times your phone is put one way or even cut because of the laxity of the postal service.

My sister sent me a birthday card which she mailed in Washington DC on September 8. I received that card on October 8, some 11 days after my birthday. That is what the TT postal service calls SERVICE. Maybe a change of name is needed because this certainly is not service.
