Hi there Dear Readers,
How are you doing?
Let me ask you a question … do you have anything that is upsetting you today? As in, is there anything that is irritating you? Is there anything you want to complain about?
I’m serious. Let’s not pretend that we don’t get irritated. It’s okay to feel exasperated sometimes. For example, today I am irritated that I simply do not have enough time to do everything that I need to do. I’m desperately trying to get to a specific shop so that I can buy a special present for somebody special. I’m struggling with time. And I know that it’s a bit silly to be irritated WITH time, but that’s just how I’m feeling. (And of course my feelings are valid).
But back to this issue of not being happy with a situation. In fact, sometimes we are so unhappy with a situation that we may even feel the need to protest or to go on strike.
At the moment, there is quite a big strike happening with many of the South African Postal Services employees. I’m not sure about the actual details, but what is important is that these employees are clearly protesting about or against something. I’m glad that we live in a society where it is mainly OK to express when you are unhappy with a situation.
The strike is quite obviously affecting service delivery. In other words, packages and parcels are probably being delivered late or not at all.
Luckily, at College SA, our students do not get their study material in the post. We courier absolutely everything to our students. That’s right – we know that our students are VIPs, so we do our best to treat our students like VIPs. And that means delivering their study material to their door – wherever that door is!
Just kidding – SHE won’t be delivering your study material. But, one of our friendly Courier Agents will make sure that your study material gets to you
So, our students do not have to worry that they will be delayed. It’s business as usual for our students. Our courier companies will still be delivering your study material to you.
Before I say goodbye, I just want to end this article by saying a big thank you to all our fantastic College SA students that took part in our most recent survey. Thank you for your feedback – it’s great to know that we can rely on your valued feedback.
That’s almost it from me for today. Please take care of yourselves.
