There’s only thing not to trust in Philippine Postal Corporation (Philpost) that it is our mail or parcel. I have ordered a Sport Metal Watch from Artscow last December and guess what? The envelope arrives yesterday but the watch did not, what the heck what’s the use of the envelope, for toilet paper? The envelope was open right where it was pasted so damn cool isn’t it. Dunno what happened to the watch maybe a cool guy is wearing it even the watch has a photo of somebody. Lol, yes it is a personalized watch my Christmas gift to my father so it has a photo of him.

What a shame, for sure the watch was stolen by philpost employees unless there’s other people who segregate and transport our mails and parcels. Just a question does our mail need to be delivered house to house or just give it other people and be delivered to us? That’s how its works in Odiongan, Romblon those barangay which are 15-30 minutes away from town the post man just gave the mail to jeepney drivers or look for someone who knows the person and darn your mail is free and in express delivery. Just be lucky if nobody got interested with it.
This is how it works before the mails are delivered in Odiongan, Romblon they were delivered first in San Pablo Laguna for segregating and then to Odiongan, Romblon. The enveloped my mother had received has no stamp of “Received torn or open” from postal office from Laguna or our from our local postal office. So when they asked why it is open and empty and then no stamp of being received open and torn the postal office just says “They didn’t noticed it” what does it mean they’re just stamping and stamping without checking if the mails or parcels they are stamping are open or torn. “Good job! Clap your hands on the air”. If postal office employees has this reason every time a parcel was missing no wonder it is nowhere to be found. So who’s the real culprit, and where it gone missing the postal employees who segregated the mails when it arrive to Philippines or the mail man who gave it to other people or the person who received it and handed to our house or maybe a ghost?
Anyway I think Philpost needs to changed their promotional banner below, because it does not correspond on what they offered, it is not safe and it is not express either. Just remember the postal delivery van hijacked somewhere in the Philippinnes, that’s what they called safe when things are being stolen express because they don’t deliver it to you but giving them to other people to be delivered right to your house.
Anyway this situation did not happened just once in our family, as far as I remember my aunt from Germany sends a registered mail to us and guess what happened we didn’t received that mail. We only noticed it when my mother received a second mail asking if we received a registered mail. So my mother and grand mother went to office to ask about it and guess what they found out, the registered mail was given to another person who happens with the same name with my mother but the case was she is not married with her husband so she doesn’t bear the same family name with us, anyway I think her husband or common-law partner is our distant relative. The big deal about the registered mail was it has Euro on it and as far as I remember the post office was also the one who change it into local currency. Great job!
So upon the complaint the post office ask the “lucky receiver” to show themselves in the post office and bring all the letters they received. And guess what even my grandparent’s letter from Tarlac was also delivered to them and of course it was also opened when handed to us. We don’t know what else they received before the mistake was discovered. Funny isn’t it? That’s how express our mail delivered by number one and trusted Philpost. So are you going to trust this kind of service or just the same reason “No choice”.
