Where is the Snail Mail?

17 December 2015, 21:15

I know that South Africa is a hot mess at the moment?  Zuma's antics have made it so much worse.  I have a question though, and I know that a lot of people are asking the same thing..... Where has all the snail mail gone?

I have a friend in Arizona, USA that I can only contact via snail mail or phone.  The calls are expensive, and for the last 2 months I have sent a letter a week, costing R7.70, so that is 8 in total, and not one letter has reached its destination.  They in turn have written quite a few, and I have not had any mail in the area I live in Boksburg for over a month.  Not even a bill.

Where is the mail?  It must be somewhere?  How on earth are we functioning at all?  Is there no postal delivery service at all?  I know they were striking months back, but I really thought that was over now.  I know I should get mail because I have bills that get sent to the house. 

I am paying my Telkom bill on an account that is 4 months old because that's how long ago I received a bill from them.

So please someone tell me... where is the Mail?
