A stamp of good work

Often Sri Lanka Post gets brickbats and seldom bouquets. I need to give them a bouquet.

I had some important official documents sent to me from Pakistan. Postage stamps to the value of Pakistan Rs. 773 had been placed on it. I received the documents with a note from our Chief Post Master (Foreign Mail) saying, "This document received in damaged/tampered/wet condition/not pasted/not properly packed/over gummed. Protected under strict supervision”.

To my surprise the word ‘damaged’ was underlined and the parcel was delivered to me, nicely sealed in a polythene wrap with all documents intact.

Congratulations, Chief Post Master and Sri Lanka Post. Keep up the good work.
