That's a remarkably comforting thought.

I was expecting a parcel today. It was a plastic jewel case containing four CDs, so I a taped a note on my front door telling the postman to leave it outside if it was too large to get through the letterbox.

So, what happens? The dumb, lousy fucking cunt just rams it through anyway; it didn't fit so it was stuck halfway, and when I pulled it out the plastic case was splintered to buggery. What fucking mongoloid does something like that? Now I'm going to have to leave another note telling him to go fuck himself.

Royal post or a private carrier?

Royal Mail.

And leave the Queen out of this! I'm sure she knew nothing about it.

Heres the thing: I bet you wont even register a complaint because its the government so who will really give a fuck anyway? Whereas, if it were a private courier they would be actively trying to resolve the problem with you if you did. Just sayin.

Let me guess:  your fifteenth live version of Lulu with notes by a guy named Graehme with a double-barreled hyphenated last name.

It isn't government owned, although they used to have a stake. The idea that the government ran it is a fallacy anyway.

I love this idea that private companies are sooo responsive to their customers. Ever had a problem with your internet provider and then get sucked into Customer Support hell talking to someone who barely speaks English? There are a few companies that care about customer service but most just try to attract fresh customers through low prices to offset the churn created by lousy customer service.

It was The Trojans since you asked. Got it for two quid, and I was congratulating myself on a great bargain until it arrived.

I've never really taken to Lulu, although Wozzeck is a favourite of mine and I've seen it many times. I suppose even Berg is enough to make your mimsyish ears bleed.

Whew ok we can agree on that.  There are moods when I'll listen to that stuff, usually midwinter for some reason, but nothing where you need a musicology degree and a score in hand -- I prefer a sachertorte with a heap of schlagobers.

No, Ive had quite the opposite experience and have found most companies quite responsive to complaints. Perhaps youre just to much of a betamale to do it effectively. ;)

Can't you even manage something like Gurrelieder? That's pretty mild as these things go. You don't need a music degree, just an open mind and a pair of ears.

I bet you give them hell when a consignment of soy is delivered and it falls below standard. Screeching your disapproval and stamping your dainty feet.

Oh yeah that is fine but I have to be in the mood for Five Pieces.

Would you like Morg! to go have a little chat with this loathsome individual?  A little attitude adjustment per chance?

Too often labels like "do not fold," "fragile," etc are just redflags for some frustrated bureaucrat, or bitter lowly-paid delivery person, to mangle the item.  Here the postal system is in this crazy semi-private status, so you often get the "best" of both government office and private company in terms of "service." Having said that my local postmen have been ok but if you go to the actual office....or around Christmas time or getting a fragile item.....

Make sure to reduce his millet rations for a few days so that he's in full attack budgie mode.

Will do.  That darn Postal Pollack will never know what happened.

99% yes, but not so much with damaged deliveries.

When captchas let you through even with errors.  Or, when they don't say if the sign post counts as part of the traffic sign.

There's a Viet chick that works the counter where I buy my bug juice.  Nice rack, and she has remarkable resemblance to the pornstar Kammy.

Naturally, I turned up the DigitalPig mojo to full blast and tried to pull this burd.  But all of my M4F pings have timed out.

So I take home my bag of broken dreams, pull up some Kammy porn and a box of Kleenex, open up the bug juice and a bottle of hand lotion, party until one bottle or the other is empty, and then cry myself to sleep.

Then, about two weeks ago, I discovered that my burd has a glass eye.  I never noticed it before.  Not like I was looking at her face with those D-cuppers whispering my name, but still.  It was an excellent job.  She was looking to her left, barking out instructions to a younger relative, no doubt a ne'er-do-well forced to help out the family, and then turned to face me.  Everything turned except her (glass) eye.  Over the next several seconds, as I tried to converse with her, the eye slowly drifted back into a normal position.  I figure that she's due for a maintenance reline, or something, to keep it physically matched to the underlying musculature.

Or whatever.  Not like it should matter to me, except for this: as I was watching Kammy do her moves that night, all I could think of was Marty Feldman.  Have you ever tried to spank it with the thought of Feldman saying "What hump?" photobombing every stroke?

That is the thing that annoys me this week.  Marty Feldman is cockblocking me from beating off.  fml

yeah, i always thought that was a major flaw in "conservative" ideology... this notion that government fucks everything and the private sector runs everything soooo much better.  read a book about the bureaucratic nightmare that is microsoft and it'll wreck that whole notion by chapter two.

The cable company has been trying to change the address on my account for two weeks and they can't seem to manage it for whatever reason.  My daughter's new passport came ten days after we sent in the application.  Of the two, I can tell you right away who seems to have their shit together.  I know there are examples in either direction of this discussion, but yeah.

I had a couple of packages sent to my relative's place in London from Estonia in the past few weeks with dimensions that I thought would require signing or picking up at the post office, but shockingly enough they actually managed to 1) ram them through the slot in the door and 2) not damage anything.

Still much better than Australia Post, where the cunts are too lazy to actually deliver something and will instead put a 'missed delivery' slip in your letterbox without ringing the doorbell or seeing if anyone is home, meaning you then have to pick it up at a post office (which of course is only open from 9-5). Or even better was when they were leaving my mail sitting on top of the letterbox instead of putting it in the slot - of course they did this when it was raining more than once.

Pop it out and you've got yourself four holes for the price of three. I'm surprised a sinister freak like you hasn't already thought of it.
