Daylight robbery

We have just returned from the Post Office having sent off some Chrimbo pressies to the States.

For a box around eighteen inches square, I was fleeced for the amount of £61.

Yes, that's right. Sixty one quid for goods that amount to half that value.

No wonder the Post Office makes huge profits.

I an now going to lie down in a darkened room, with maybe a bottle of Scotch to keep me company.


Bah humbug........

Is this because of the new way of calculating postage by size rather than weight? Diabolical!

When we next visit the States we are going to parcel ourselves. At these prices surely we must get Premium Class in the baggage hold.
