Trouble here too on the postal front. The horror was not just from witnessing huge (at least twenty people) cues outside Mandela Way
depot late one Friday (23rd Oct) afternoon, (one woman said she'd been waiting for more than two hours hopeful they would re-open), but being told directly lots of post has yet to even reach them.
I presented a red "undeliverable" slip to them last week, having let a week pass before daring to hope they had it. The despondent desk-dispatcher told me they had definitely not yet received anything from that period because it had all gone to another bigger depot, and that it would take at least another week to arrive due to the strike related back log. But if I leave it too long don't they send it back to the poster? I will try again tomorrow, but oh dear, my hopes are now very low. Perhaps everyone should have gone on strike and not dared post anything?
