Third World Post Office Sucks

OMG! You would *never* believe what happened to me today. The third world postal system is clearly one of the most disgusting government entity on the face of the planet. You think corruption only exists at the top? Please. The bottom-feeders who work at the post office should be shot at the back of their skulls.

So basically, I sent someone to pick up my packages from eBay at the post office. I bought all sorts of cheap shit from belts and hats to shoes and bracelets. Loads of accessories. Anyway, on one of the auctions, I won this lot of nine (9) bracelets however, when my messenger arrived, I only saw 3 bracelets in the package.

I was going to write this long scathing email how I got scammed by the seller only to be told by my messenger that the post office took 6 of my bracelets — the one with spikes. Apparently they think of it as a dangerous threat/weapons and the lady had to confirm it with her boss whether or not they’re gonna release them and they’ll notify me by phone.

What the hell? How can these bracelets be deemed dangerous? I honestly don’t get it. And the whores had the nerve to charge me $40 in duties and taxes for this lot, twice the amount I paid for.

I’m telling y’all, the fuckers at Las Pinas post office should be shot. I don’t even understand why that post office handles our packages when there’s another post office nearby (Alabang) who should be handling our packages. God damn I loathe them damn minimum waging corrupt peasants. I really do.

You know, this sort of shit never happens in other countries. In fact, packages are delivered right in people’s doorstep too. You simply don’t go to the post office to claim your packages. Ugh.

Welcome to the third world, I guess.

  1. the Philippines isn’t the only country with a shitty postal service…
    i have continuous troubles with the Finnish posti – they’re major nazis. Anything that comes from outside of the EU is inspected THOROUGHLY and even if the custom slip says it’s a gift, the customs officers will question how do you know the sender, how is it a gift and will actually CHARGE YOU customs duty of 12% of the shipping + cost of the package if it’s over €40 in worth.
    i had received a package from an ebay seller and they checked the auction URL right there in front of me to make sure that the customs slip wasn’t lying and that i wasn’t lying so they could charge me customs duty.
    …and to top it off…even if the sender specifies for delivery to your door..they don’t do it here either. seems like the only postal systems that work are the UK and possibly even the US

  2. I think the LP PostOff is a total scam. Just in case you didnt know, they’ve already been featured in XXX, a show in ABS CBN that reveals the difft modus operandis of people. Kinda like Imbestigador of ch 7. The LP PostOff has been reported of charging tooooo friggin much for taxes kuno. And some stuff that’s been delivered na hindi nabibigay sa rightful owner. So there, just letting you know. Be careful next time. Dont just give in if they ask you to pay taxes or whatever. I once got a package from them, and the box was pretty big and all it had were original dvd sets and other stuff from NY, they didnt charge me single cent. Hahaha. So next time, just be careful :)

  4. i had a classmate in the school in taft who got caught by a discipline officer wearing that bracelet. he was charged with bringing a deadly weapon to school because of that.

  5. Post offices can be a bit like that. There was a famous case in France in the 60s where a computer program (in the form of punched cards) was being sent through the post. It never worked on the other end. Eventually it turned out that the post office people were randomly taking a few of the cards; it was at the time standard to take a sample of bulk material sent through the post.
    Our local post office persists in thinking that the building I live in doesn’t exist.

  6. Welcome to the club!!!
    That happened to me too when I ordered books and cd’s and assholes were asking for Php 10,000 for each package. I had two then. Sad thing was that I paid for GBP 30.00 for door to door shipment. It was supposed to come in a week no wonder my order hasn’t arrived for more than 3 weeks because those fuckers opened it at the Las Pinas post office and were asking for declaration and shit.
    I hope they all die! I hope their families starve! I hope their children die! I hope they get caught! I hope they get murdered! I hope that they forever live in the cesspit of the third world! I hope that the post office people at Las Pinas will all live in poverty forever and ever.

    Well, that’s what you get from being ignorant of Duties and Taxes Laws. Just because you can access EBAY on your third world computer doesn;t mean you start buying from the first world sellers. KNOW YOU LOCAL TAX AND DUTY CODE before you WHINE!

  10. You would be helpful to society if you file a case against them. Did they issue a receipt for the items they confiscated? They should have. if not, another case. Get a lawyer, or better, complain to the Department of Finance.

  12. Dahlin…next time, insist not to pay more than PhP30 (or is it 35) for every package wiv declared value of less than US$50 as customs (handling) fee. I frequent the P’que P.O. for makeup shipments and as long as the declared value’s less than $50, me and the PO folks’re at peace. ;)

  13. Don’t be so quick to judge. Yes, they’re fucktards for doing that but don’t think that those things happen *ONLY* and *EXCLUSIVELY* in the Philippines. Read the previous post and you’ll know that for a fact.

    Tomorrow I’m going to make a shirt that says “Philippines is a piece of shit”.. Philippines would really throw me to Rwanda or Egypt or I might even get stabbed 96 times, that beats Ceasar. Gak. LOL Xx

  15. To lisalisa, they weren’t supposed to tax you on books because they are considered educational materials and they are non-taxable.
