Goin’ Postal

I (David) supervise several staff that spends the majority of their day building relationships in town and waiting in lines for our organization.

An expat that I work with approached me and said that he purchased 45 CABTAL calendars and wanted to send them to his home country in Australia and asked me to find out how much it would cost him to send them to his home country.

So first I sent someone to DHL and asked how much it would cost to send 25 pounds to Australia. He came back with an estimate of $400. So I sent him to the local post office to see how much it would cost. He came back with a cost of $200. Finally I sent him with one calendar to see how much it would cost to send it and he came back and told me it cost $5.

I thanked him and asked him for the calendar back and he informed me that he mailed it to Australia. I asked him what address he used since I didn’t give him a specific location to mail it to. He said, “I just used Australia.”

So, somewhere between Cameroon and Australia there is a CABTAL calendar that is on its way.  If it arrives at your door you now know why.
