Australia Post - 70kms in 12 days

Hi all,

Just had to tell you a funny thing that just happened to me.

I needed some silver heart buckles for some wedding invitations I am doing, so I rang a place on the other side of town. They had them in stock, but I was too lazy to drive the 140 km round trip to get them, so I got them to post the items on the 9th of September. 

Normally it takes just overnight for something posted in Perth to arrive here.... NOPE .... about 10 minutes ago I was on my way out to my car to drive to another shop on the other side of town who also had them in stock and I looked in my letter box. Finally they arrived!!!!  It took a record 12 days for this parcel to travel 70kms from their post office to my letter box. 12 blinkin' days!!! aaarrrrggghhh. I have had parcels travel from America to here in less time.

But hey, now I can get to making these invitations.

Have a good one,

  1. What is going on with Aussie Post! My entire life I have never had a problem with them. This year alone, I have had three.


    My conspiracy theory is: An Australia post worker who scraps in her spare time saw the shiny buckles in the xray, she said 'ooooo pretttyyy' and wanted em bad but didn't want to drive 140km herself. So she steamed it open that night, scrapped happy and re-ordered you some online, taking 12 days total to reseal and send. THAT'S MY THEORY!
