On Saturday, an American colleague decided to send us some important documents he had finished working on. We expected the package on Monday, but when it didn't come in we assumed it would be in by Tuesday. On Wednesday, we asked the office to call him and get hold of the tracking number for the package. He said he didn't recall if he noted it down, but he'd get hold of it and let us know. On Thursday we call him again, and we ask him to give us any (and all) details we can use in order to track the damn-document which is now way overdue. He responds, rather indignantly, that he's sent us the documents via Pakistan Post a week ago, and he has no idea why they have not reached us.
Shoot. Me. Now.
Who the hell uses the Pakistan Post-Office and actually expects anything to be delivered on time? Clearly our ferangi-friends need a reminder that they're not in fucking-Kansas anymore!
