We often read of the despairs and agony of those who had encountered problems with the slow and delayed delivery of their much anticipated mailed packages into the country.
My family and I had such a similar bewildering but somehow amusing experience recently.
A friend sent us a small parcel from Singapore which was packed and signed personally on January 17. According to the official markings on the parcel, it was delivered and received safely by our local Postal Services on January 26.
However the notification card was only issued to us on June 8, as recorded on the same parcel, to inform us that the package had arrived and was ready for collection.
Therefore, it makes one wonder why did it take five months to issue the notification card? Understandably, in view of the COVID-19 pandemic, the parcel and such items may need to be quarantined and decontaminated. But a wait of five months is just too much.
Waiting In Vain
