so i was in a realpuki swap, and after i got everything made and packaged, i trundled off to the post office to get the parcel weighed and measured. dutifully handing over my money for postage, i was assured the parcel should arrive in 5-7 days. imagine my surprise when a week later it showed up not at my swap partners door, but back in our mail box! it had a sticker on it saying i owed 4 cents postage. 4 cents!. there was almost $8 dollars postage on it and they quibble over 4 cents???
especially after “they” told me how much it would cost in the first place?

however nothing to do but go back to the post office, pay my 4 cents and send it off again…
which i did….
however, in spite of the label clearly stating i owed 4 cents, the lady at the post office insisted on weighing and measuring it again, and informing me i didn’t owe 4 cents……
nope, i owed 7 cents…..
only canada post 😆
here’s hoping it doesn’t come back again :sigh
