I mailed some packages yesterday and found out some very interesting information.
Postage is going up.
Okay, I'm sure that was not a big surprise, but for someone who still hasn't sent out her 2007 Christmas cards, that will make an impact. Or at least give me a deadline.
But the really interesting fact is that when you mail a package parcel post, in addition to asking you if there is anything fragile, breakable, flammable, or radio-active (oh, I kid, but it does seem like that is the next question to be asked), you are now asked if you included a note or a letter.
So they can charge you an extra $0.41! It was explained to me that if I mailed it Priority they would not require the extra postage.
What a scam!!!!
So, Jodi, your package is coming with a note - that I paid $0.41 extra for, but Juliet, yours is not...it's a matter of principle!!
And as of May 12th, it will cost you $0.42!
