The Post Office

Listening to:

The Beach Boys, California Girls.

The national post provides a dreadful service here in Australia. They are not open on Saturdays (even the banks, remarkable for the awfulness of their service, are open on Saturdays); they seem to under-staff their offices, resulting in tediously long queues all the time; and they don’t seem to allow stamps to be sold elsewhere. Perhaps the PO should just be privatised. (But John Howard’s government is obsessed with Telstra, which it hasn’t managed to privatise after a decade of trying, so my hopes aren’t high.)

We can buy stamps at the newsagent here in Sydney...

Damn; raw facts getting in the way of spleen and vitriol.
