Would you be offended

  • cyclist Moderator Thursday, March 13, 2014 8:12 AM Reply
    If someone said your postal company was rubbish?

    It seems I offended a Live Chat worker by asking that my package be sent with Swedish Post because China Post was rubbish!
    I was actually asked to take back the "rubbish" comment!
    Clearly she hadn't ever seen the forum over the last several months or waited 3-4 month for a package to arrive.
    I decided to ask after more than half of my recent orders were sent by China Post and then weeks latter returned and sent by Swedish Post.
    I used to like CP, but as my packages are talking twice as long to arrive because they have to get posted twice, not so much now.

    it appears she took the comment personally, since China Post is their state run carrier she probably thought you were saying(indirectly) that her country is also 'rubbish' but you could have asked lal, he seems to have found the solution although i haven't tried it myself http://club.dx.com/forums/forums.dx/threadid.965674 just substitute Swedish Post for Hong Kong Post
    Resistance is futile-give in to DX gadget craving!
    also a voluntary mod-be nice please!

    Yes, there are good reasons why I wouldn't be impressed with my local post company. I can remember when I could post an item before the 11pm clearance at the local post office and it would get to its destination a thousand kilometres away the next day. That post office doesn't exist any more. The nearest is about 3 times the distance away with the latest clearance 6pm, taking maybe 3 days to get across town.

    I received two DX packages this morning, both shipped with China Post. They had taken 7 and 8 days for shipping.

    I have 6 orders shipped between Mar 4th ~ 10th, all still sitting in CP. Only the earliest one has been "Found".

    Tell whoever got offended, that gasbag11 also thinks CP sucks. :/

    edit - changed placed to shipped.
    NO! I don't know why DX screwed up the site so badly.
    Ask them.

    Surprisingly, my lastest two china post packages got here before one carried by swedish post did. It's all about odds and there doesn't seem to be anything one might call 'a safe bet'. 'House' seems to always win :P

    obviously though cp is scared of having a plane go down, so much so that they will turn away packages that dont have a single knife, battery, or liquid in them. also they may just be rubbish... what i find disturbing is that instead of fixing the problem DX just keeps finding another loophole to skate through. im going to be looking for in states distributors of most of the flashlights i like so i can skip giving dx my money.

    These forums are really dead these days.

    They seem to treat their parcels like rubbish. (An old video, but it makes a point.)

    state run services in China/Brazil/Russia/India = rubbish, no matter what.
