Que vivan Peruvian Correos workers!
I got to expand my Peruvian resume today. I worked for 15 minutes as a postal employee. Que alegria! Seriously. It was great fun.
About an hour after I mailed 10+ postcards here, I realized that on none of them had I written “USA” beneath the US addresses. Oops.
So, off I went running to the Correos.
Spoke to several lovely people; and with their Supervisor they let me in and allowed me to go through the mail to find mis postales and correct them. I think that I found all of them; but, I couldn’t be sure about the total for that particular mail drop. So they told me- upon learning my handwriting- that they would write “USA” on any postcard I missed.
And they all did this with great patience for me and good humor. Cudos Correos de Peru!! Way to work well, flexibly and be of service to the customer. What a concept.
Civil servants everywhere: please learn from this experience!!!!!!
P.S. I saw things being mailed from Peru to: Poland, France, Australia, Sweden, Japan, Germany, USA, and many, many more…
