Praise for the Post Office

It’s not something you hear too often, but I’m really impressed with the postal service.

I received a parcel at the office. It was from the US and of course, we’re here in Canada. OK, not that impressive, you’re thinking. I get parcels at the office all the time – even international ones.

Yes, so do I, but in this case the address was wrong. Not just slightly wrong, totally wrong.

How many things can go wrong on a business parcel?

  1. Company Name
  2. Addressee Name
  3. Address
  4. Box/Suite Number
  5. City
  6. Country
  7. Postal/Zip Code

Seven items. And all of them were wrong.

Yet I still got the parcel. Shipped from the US to Canada and it arrived in just 3 days.

Kudos to both the people and systems at the USPS and Canada Post!
