Post Laju: 'Fast Post' Or Snail Delivery?
Seremban is only a 40 minutes' or so drive from Kuala Lumpur.
I guess a tortoise should be able to cover the distance in three days.
A snail maybe in double the time.
But it took Pos Laju 7 days to deliver a document by courier to the recipient in Seremban!
Well, I guess that was not so bad by a snail's standard.
Or a tortoise's.
However, if you tout yourself as a reliable and fast courier, you wouldn't want to be compared to a tortoise.
Or worse still, to a snail.
The said document was handed over to Pos Laju on the 2nd of this month and they only managed to deliver it on the 8th - and that too, after we had bugged them to look into the matter!
Not so bad maybe if you consider that you are at least as swift as a snail and only worse than a tortoise.
In Bolehland, we can't complain much.
You take it or you leave it.
Except that taking or leaving it makes no difference - you are still screwed!
