100 Days - (eighty five) send in the cavalry

Rose was sorting her backlog into boxes because she was worried about being swamped by an avalanche of packages. I am going to deliver a chunk of them this morning, having cleared Derby's overdue packets yesterday (I mean, not just yesterday, it took three days). Mind you, there will just be another backlog there on Saturday ... because there are more packets than human beings to deliver them. 

However, it is alleged that poor management decisions may be having some impact on the chaos that is overwhelming us. (You didn't hear that from me). They sent in the cavalry yesterday. Managers and random staff from other offices descended on our office to try and regain control of the situation. Lots of stuff left the office, and to be honest not as much came back as I expected. Lee spent a couple of hours sorting three weeks of Langdale packets ready to go out. The customers on Langdale have been getting quite irate, understandably so. Usually I enjoy this time of year. It's just that this year the Christmas pressure period has lasted since March, just without the fun of matching random floating Christmas cards with random empty envelopes. Hey ho, once more into the breach ...

Stay safe. See you tomorrow.
