POst Office

Post by carrie » Thu Oct 13, 2016 12:09 pm

Went to the post office last week to register a letter, found out when I got there it was the 6th October so a holiday, post office closed. Saturday I went again only to be told that the man who deals with registered letters was off sick. Come back tomorrow. Back I went again next day queued up at the counter only to be told that the man who does the registered post was now in the back of the post office. So off I went to see him. Going round the back I was stopped by security and told it wasn't allowed to go there. Finally allowed to go and see him, registered the letter 19le. So all done and dusted. I have received yet another life certificate form that has to be completed and sent off. So off to the post office again. Round the back again, no problems this time and for a letter the same size going to the UK again was charged 13le.
I think I am getting a discount now. :lol:

Yes, I had two this year Carrie, not sure why! I got a friend to post the second one in the UK, although I'm pretty sure the first one arrived as my pension wasn't suspended. :ni: :ni:

I sent a registered letter a week ago on Tuesday afternoon it was delivered in London this Tuesday morning.
There is also an Express delivery service costs more but less than DHL I understand.
