The problem with the postal service – in two pictures

Ladies and gentlemen, I present for your consideration the first picture:

Private Eye - Published 2 October 2015

Private Eye – Published 2 October 2015

The 2 October issue arrived today, 1 November 2015.

Ladies and gentlemen, I now present for your consideration the second picture:

Private Eye

Private Eye – Published 16 October 2015

The 16 October issue also arrived today, 1 November 2015.

And there you have the problem with the postal service, neatly summarized in these two pictures.

Somehow or other, one magazine took around 30 days, and the other took around 16 days. Both were making the same journey. How is that possible without something being seriously wrong? But where? Did the delay happen en route to Israel, or en route to Ra’anana? What do you think?

I have one advantage: I have seen fairly up close and personal how the Israeli postal service struggles… Thank heaven for the internet!
