The Claws of ‘Correos de Cuba’ in my Correspondence

I should be used to mail arriving at my house in Havana in these conditions, but no, I’m not used to it. (14ymedio)

I know they will tell me that I should be used to the fact that the mail does not arrive at my house in Havana or arrives in these conditions, but no, I do not get used to it. No one should get used to the horror.
