    Maybe he can find out if mail still gets delivered in Cayman if the forecast is cloudy with showers possible?

    Too funny. When we have not received any mail for a while, including junk mail, I go down to the post office and ask for my mail. And every time the person behind the counter gave me dirty looks, no explanation, and a few weeks of mail that was not delivered.

    Still waiting for a letter mailed to me in May 2016 from Hamilton to arrive.

      “Still waiting for a letter mailed to me in May 2016 from Hamilton to arrive.”

      The COVID-19 pandemic has slowed delivery.

      Do you by chance live in Somerset? I have experienced such delays in Somerset for years.

      • Hilarious! says:

        The covid farce lockdown was in 2020, 4 years before the letter was mailed. I suspect the letter ended up in a furnace.

    How is this worth anything at all? Nobody uses the postal service anymore. The Bermuda Postal Service advises you yo use Fedex and DHL!

    The only thing worth keeping is the Perot Post Office and that hasn’t re-opened despite being a wonderful piece of history that tourists adore. But this government would rather send its ministers on expensive fun trips like this one. Jokers.

      I had several meetings with the Postmaster General years ago where he discussed turning post offices into Internet cafes with Starbucks-like food service.
