that is outrageous..... Very embarrasing for you to ask the receiver to have to pay more....

What about our lovely postie in Queenstown who has been hoarding the mail for a few years that she couldn't be bothered delivering........

Mark that is horrendous. Even though my situation has changed l still think that something needs to be done, atleast have all post offices etc on the same wave length:)

Susan nz....we had a postie is sussex that did that, but l think he was stealing stuff too:(

The problem stems in many places because there are no Main Branch Offices anymore and all that are left are sub offices - they do no get any proper training just information leaflets telling them how to do the 'new' thing.

So what happens is that there is often a great deal of misunderstanding of new ways and to be honest the new postal system is a nightmare, just glad I am now out of it......
