Amazon Blacklists SA Post Office! General Nonsense 18 JUN 2008

Post OfficeWell someone had to put those thieves, I mean Post Office, in their place. Seems that the world’s largest online retailer, Amazon, has finally pulled the plug on our good old postal service for good. Apparently fed up with the rampant theft by Post Office workers, Amazon has blacklisted our postal service and the American giant will now only ship stuff to South Africa via courier – which will add about a whopping R420 to the price of an ordinary DVD!

According to Business Day, no other African country’s postal service has been blacklisted by Amazon.

I’m thinking that perhaps it is time for the Post Office to consider changing their motto from “We deliver, whatever it takes” to “We deliver, whatever we don’t take”!
