Stupid Post Office

For want of a nail the shoe was lost.
For want of a shoe the horse was lost.
For want of a horse the rider was lost.
For want of a rider the battle was lost.
For want of a battle the kingdom was lost.
And all for the want of a horseshoe nail.

For want of 6p postage, a job was lost. I just found out that one of my job applications arrived 9 weeks late because the Post Office was holding it hostage for the want of 6p. Please learn by my mistake. Find a Post Office branch that hasn't been shut down, access it during its paltry opening hours, and get your job application weighed before sticking stamps on it.

Argh I've had that happen with these stupid new post sizes, my letter was slightly too big or too heavy, so they refused to deliver it till it had been paid, and they'd received £1.00 for "administration"

robbing bastards.
