  1. I do wonder about the journey of a letter especially when it takes 21 f….n days to get from Wollongong to Auckland ,NZ.That is by air-mail and by way it is a 3 hour 15min., flight. so can somebody explain.???

  2. Could you show us where the postmen open Christmas cards, steal any money within, throw the envelope away and repeat, ad infinitum? Tell us how a RM postman is sacked, every single day of every single year, for theft. Tell us why my postman admits he needs glasses but fails to wear them, so he delivers other people's mail to me and God knows where mine goes. Many thanks.

  3. Hello, Great Video, Just wanted to share with the youtube community that USPS tracked packages with electronic delivery confirmation are not being scanned in by the UK and the Royal Mail services. They are stealing our USPS parcels and the english bound American shipped parcels are never being seen again. True store. We have lost dozens of them this year alone and let me point out it's only to the UK , ONLY. Maybe they are mad at us about Trmp and they are taking it out on American sellers. Who know's the reason but It's a true story. Our tracked parcels that we are paying almost 20 dollars each to ship overseas are not being scanned in once they reach the UK. They are being stolen and they are being disappeared.

  4. Can you show the video about the machines braking down and how the letters gets ripped apart in to pieces as the process is very fast and if 1 letter will get stuck at least a hundred will get ripped off, that would be interesting to see.
