Yesterday I got a Christmas card from an old friend and a calendar from my auntie, both posted from NE england on December 18th and judging from the stamps, posted at a post office not a pillbox. A month to get here. In early January I sent a shirt and my measurements to China to have a shirt made to measure. The new shirt was made from scratch and posted back to me along with the old shirt from China in half the time than it takes for post to get here from England. I hope you posties are working on a back up plan for income beyond nicking money out of birthday cards cos with 'service' like this it's only a matter of time till the whole thing collapses.
