Today there is a newspaper article: in a Melbourne suburb posties have found the hills so dangerous that all post will cease to be delivered there.
No. Not trying to be funny. Same for the irony that this decision was delivered...by a postie.
Now does anyone else here have the same immediate response that I do? That of a 5 letter word:
D R O N E.
Surely this is what a drone is good for for crying out loud. Do the people who run Australia Post still live in 1955? Nor have they watched the news and seen "drone strikes". Correction. I take that back. There is no news anymore. There is only propaganda. So an ignorance of drone strikes is forgivable.
Anyway. I can't see any future for a company that is so far behind the times as Australia post is. Come on Amazon or anyone else. Bring in your drones for delivery. Because our Antipodean backwater hasn't heard of them.
