Okay so I'm rather pissed off at the moment...
I got this message from my dad:
"---and just wondering why you have sent some letter for Norway from X address(my school dormitory) to Y(my home)...?"
Yeah, that's right! I seriously can't trust the post officials of the town where I'm studying in. This is not the first time when they've messed up with my packages. They're often unfriendly, and unprofessional. I, who are just a regular customer, knows better how to do the job than the actual workers.
I was wondering how the hell were they able to mix up the addresses and send my letter to the neighbor city, instead to Norway, to the neighbor country... my dad suggested I hadn't written the addresses clearly enough but what do you girls think about this?:
I wrote my penpal's address clearly on the front side. I even decorated the borders of the address with Norwegian flag stickers and wrote "AIR MAIL". Then, the post officer has printed the white postal sticker on the front side too.
On the back side I wrote my own address in the small area at the bottom of the envelope. I clearly wrote "FROM."
Although I did all this, the letter did not get to travel more than 50 km. The white postal sticker is always attached on the front side of the envelope, so it should indicate that the address that is below it, is the address where the letter should be sent to, right?!
Also, the postage can't be a problem, I've sent more heavier letters than this with lesser money. And the post officer weighed the letter at the post office, too.
I just can't come up with any reasons as to why my letter never got to Norway. Do you think my envelope & the addresses are somehow complex?
I WASTED 1,20 EUROS ON THIS , IT IS A BIG MONEY FOR A STUDENT LIKE ME. I'D HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BUY 5 PACKETS OF NOODLES WITH THAT MONEY!
this is for you who decided to keep my letter inside the borders of Finland instead of sending it to Norway: (￣^￣) 凸 (￣^￣) 凸 (￣^￣) 凸
Now I'm trying my luck and re-sending my letter. I made a little changes though; I wrote with big font on the front side "VASTAANOTTAJA"(the receiver) and on the back side next to my address "LÄHETTÄJÄ"(the sender). Just in case if someone is unintelligent and doesn't understand such simple English words as "From." and "To."
I am now going to send some feedback to the Finnish Post from an unsatisfied customer!
