The "funniest" ... [ HA HA !!!!] thing was taking my ebay item to the post office yesterday. The stickler-for-the-rules behind the counter, dropped it into their new special measuring box FIVE times to determine whether I should pay £2.60 or £5.20. She tried every angle possible, to try and get it to "wedge" against the sides, and each time it slipped in, unaided. She was very disappointed that it was small enuf for £2.60.

Each time it fell in, I triumphantly said "it's fitted", and each time, she admitted through gritted teeth, "but only just". The irony is, that what had made it a few mm thicker in every direction, was the one layer of bubble wrap I had added. LIFE is becoming suicidally tedious ... you just have to add up all these little grievances ! , But, "falling out" with officials and using threatening behaviour is prosecutable.

AIBU, or should I simply accept that "we can't win".

YABU but I say that as someone who has a vested interest I suppose...I want Royal mail to continue to be a profitable business so we continue to get an income (DH works for them)

I want Royal Mail to succeed to. Overall I think they offer a really good service however they've gone wrong with this new pricing structure. It needs tweaking to say the least.
