The Insanity of Irony
This ^is feedback left to me by an eBay customer in the States.
I sent it to Moira Greene the last CEO of Canada Post as an attachment Dec. 2009.
Among other issues I asked her to please seek professional help, because she might be as insane as the rates?
Jan. 1st Canada Post started to collect Loonies (a Canadian $1. coin) at the till to help support mental health!
Oh the Irony!
When the new rates pamphlet was released in Jan. of this year, one has to scratch their head over some of the irrational international rates.
There are some that are way out of line. I had to ask myself who the primate was who decided them?
My next stop at the post office I picked up one of the new dispensers for rolls of stamps, turned it around and found his picture on the back!
Another pamphlet that one can pick up at the post office called:
"CANADIAN POSTAL SERVICE CHARTER"
Who do they think they are kidding?
They consulted with me, told me that they are competitive, I told them they where not, the end.
Since when is it fair to ship a set of cufflinks from Ontario to Vancouver and
be charged $14.58 for a 100 gram parcel that won't fit through their stingy gage?
How blind/myopic can a corporation be?
I did alert Canada Post, they where clueless when eBay made this policy change, and came back to me with:
This is BS, they changed the way they charged the FVF because some sellers where dodging the FVF by selling the item for a buck and charging their profits in the shipping fees. It was the easiest way for eBay to get their pound of flesh out of them.
(copies of my communication with eBay's brass, available upon request)
I've been saying for years that Canada Post is shooting itself in the foot with their insane rates.
We are dealing with a large portion of the planet that has devalued it's dollar to close to .03 cents.
