I went to the post office yesterday to post a retro package to Germany. They wanted £22.86 to send a moderately small item. Resigned to the rip-off I agreed (as I had been queueing for nearly an hour) only to be told that he couldn’t send the parcel as he didn’t have the correct barcode!!!!
WTF? You’re meant to be the POST OFFICE! FAIL! FAIL! F$CKING FAIL!
P*ssed off and not wanting to drive right into town, pay for parking and queue again, I turned to the internet.
That’s when I found ParcelMonkey! I got the same package shipped for £17.51, they are going to collect it and it’s INSURED and TRACKED!
Oh… and the real kicker is that it’s going to be shipped by the same carrier.
