Teabagging

pcteabagReaders will be aware that I have formulated a special blend of green tea and choice mint which I distribute as PCTeabags.

I shipped out a cubic meter of these to Milan for distribution at the AIPPI conference, and couriered seven cartons of these to Brussels for distribution at the Premier Cercle conference. In my write-up of that conference, I noted that we arrived sans-luggage, and had to go to sleep sans-culottes. What I didn’t write was that we arrived without the PCTeabags, or rather they did not arrive.

I have now, two months later, received letters from the Israel Post Authority requesting me to pay to release the returned boxes from customs! This is particularly annoying. I sent these by EMS with a three-day delivery schedule and they should have arrived before the conference. Not only did the nice warming, calming, stress-relieving brew not arrive on time, due to Israel Post incompetence, but it did not arrive at all. Not only have I wasted over 1000 Shekels on couriering the teabags that were not delivered and are now being returned, but I have to spend a further few hundred Shekels getting this “import” released from customs.

It is tempting to sue the Israel Postal Authority for this.
