Have you ever been sent a letter from anywhere on earth by standard mail to your address in Philippines? What was your age at the time the letter was sent to you? How much older were you when you finally received it, if you even received it at all?
These lazy, incompetent, imbecile Filipinos just can’t do anything.
I had a Mastercard credit card sent from USA back in November of 2013 to replace the current one that was due to expire December 31. How did I know it would never make it before the current card expires? Here it is March 6th, 2014, and I am to receive via UPS Express the replacement of that card that was sent in November, but has STILL not arrived. 2 weeks ago I just gave up and called the issuing bank and told them the card is lost in the mail. I’m sure they hear that a lot from people in the Philippines. So anyway, it cost me $7 to have a replacement card printed, and $95.00 to have it shipped Express UPS with tracking.
I really shouldn’t have been such a cheap ass to begin with. I should have known better and had them ship the first card UPS Express with tracking. But I guess trying to save $95 isn’t really being that much of a cheap ass. I knew it would take many many weeks to get here, so I was willing to play the odds. I took a gamble and had it shipped standard mail. Had the same thing happen 2 years ago. But I actually did receive the card (took 3 mother fuckin’ months to get here, but it DID get here) so I thought there might be a fair chance of eventually getting the new one. And who knows? With my luck, the original card will show up tomorrow. I would actually feel much better if the original card would not show up here at all. I’ll feel much more justified in paying the $95 Express shipping with tracking.
But it’s now been 3 months, I gave up. I shelled out the $7 replacement fee and $95 to have it shipped with some kind of accountability (tracking). This card is the only way I have access to the money in that particular account, so I HAVE TO HAVE that card, otherwise, I wouldn’t have bothered. I just feel better about keeping the bulk of my money in US Banks, and as little as possible in Philippine banks for obvious reasons.
But I just had to rant. Filipinos are so fucking stupid. In the place I live now, the association lets the resident make up their own address. HOW MUCH FUCKING SENSE DOES THAT MAKE?????? An address should be static, and recorded, and on record. NOT DYNAMIC TO BE CHANGED WITH EACH NEW RESIDENT!! HOW THE FUCK ARE THOSE WHO NEED TO DELIVER THINGS SUPPOSED TO KNOW WHAT THE ADDRESS IS ON THIS HOUSE THIS YEAR???? Fucking god damn dumb fucks, I swear to GAWD!!! Christ allmighty, the fuckin’ postal service can’t even wipe their own ass, much less deliver the mail before you die. How much more if you keep changing the address on houses????? Fucking imbeciles!!!
But back to the mail. The Philippines postal service (It should be called “Philippines Postal DISSERVICE) is utterly and completely pathetic (shocking to hear, I know).
But you mark my words, as they are written right here. Now that I have my replacement credit card, which cost me $102 dollars to get, I bet the card that was sent way back in November 2013 will arrive within a week from now. It’s just my luck. But damn, I couldn’t wait any longer. I’ll let you know if the original card arrives. If it does, I wouldn’t want to be the postal carrier who will be delivering it. Because he’s going to get an ear full from me. I know it won’t do any good at all for them, but it will sure be good for me. And why not? That’s the way people operate here anyway. Do only whats good for yourself.Published in
