Thumbs down Anyone else waiting for their Mail?

I've been waiting for something for a week now. I know now why it hasn't arrived yet.


Quote:
Canada Post says flu is to blame for a lack of mail delivery for thousands of people in Toronto's east end last week.

Some local businesses are outraged that they were left without daily deliveries because Canada Post says it no longer has enough staff to cover for sick letter carriers.

But the Canadian Union of Postal Workers blamed the backlog on Canada Post's decision to lay off temporary workers who normally would be called in to fill the vacancies.

At a dental clinic near Victoria Park Avenue and Gerrard Street, office manager Debbie Rabinovitch says on most days, she gets 50 to 100 letters delivered, but last week, Canada Post told her she'd be lucky if she got any.

"They [said they] were short staffed and not to hold my breath about getting mail today, and I'd be lucky if I got it tomorrow," Rabinovitch said. "And Wednesday came, and I didn't get mail. Thursday, I didn't get mail."

Rabinovitch said she called Canada Post a second time to inquire about the problem.

"The second call, I think, they said they are short staffed [and that] if I knew anyone looking for a job, send them in,"

Canada Post admits there have been disruptions.

Carrier backlash against reorganization
The company is in the midst of a massive overhaul, it said. It is shedding jobs and trying to modernize while facing a 15 per cent drop in traditional letter mail.

"It's kind of like changing the engine on a race car as it's going through a race," said Doug Jones, senior vice-president of operations. "You have to keep everything going service the public while we're doing these upgrades."

Canada Post is modernizing its sorting methods, said Jones, and is now getting letter carriers to take over multiple tasks.

"So, when [letter carriers] go down the street, [they're] going to pick up the mail at a community mail box ... deliver the mail to the residents ... deliver the parcels."

There has been a flu bug going around the city. At my school, nearly everyone (including me) is coughing.

my aunt the last two weeks has been horribly sick. she went to the doctor and found out she had H2N3. It's another strain of H1N1, and he told her it'll go around as heavy as H1N1. Look out folks, take care of yourselves.

I heard of H2N3 on the news, it's the same strain that caused a world epidemic a few decades ago.

Shit, I should have gotten a flu shot this year. I think it's too late at this point. I heard it takes a month for the thing to actually work.

Canada post is actually a joke, I never, ever ship anything with them anymore after I have had packages mysteriously disappear......UPS is cheaper and faster for anything other then letter mail

I would never take that flu shots. They put foreign substances like chips to track people, and chemicals that would control your moods, desires, wants, and needs... mind control.

I had a package coming in from July 2010 which didn't come after 3 months. I demanded compensation, and he showed me proof of sending the compensation. Again, it did not show up. Screw the Canada Post.

Sounds crazy, but it's true. Even doctors aren't sold out on those vaccines and they won't give it to their kids.

It's not funny when you lose like a 100$ value in the mail.

YouTube - The Swine Flu Conspiracy
Ugh. Where's the conspiracy exactly? Doctors pleading with the public to get a flu shot? What a shocker!

You could take a video of the cutest, most innocent kitten in the world, add that music and convince people that said kitten was up to no good.

Where's the expected fallout from the H1N1 shots from a year ago? According to the looney tunes, people should be dying in the streets. Still waiting on that I guess.

I had mine last year. I guess it was from the unpoisoned batch. Phew!
