  1. It is disgraceful that at the busiest time of year the post office have chosen to close early whereas anywhere else in the world, they normally extend their working hours to ensure that all the children receive their presents on time. Despite this early closing, I understand from a senior source within the post office that there remains over 3,000 parcels undelivered, backed up within the various post offices around the island. One of them is for my 8 year old who was extremely disappointed along with myself given that on tracking it with US Customs I found out it had been delivered on-island on 12th December. My relatives paid 120.00 to ensure its arrival before Xmas!!

    It would be rather interesting to see how many sick days were taken by staff throughout December!! Come on Cayman, get your act together!!
