... but you didnít put enough postage on the envelope!
This morning, along with our post, the mail man delivered one of their information cards that said there was an item for us at the postal sorting office and that to retrieve it, it would cost £1.09.
As is typical for this card whenever, weíve got them, it just has our surname, so we donít know specifically who in the household the item is for. Also, it doesnít say who itís from, to give us the choice of ignoring it. We only know what it is when we go to the sorting office to collect the item and pay for the remaining postage.
As I recognised my friendís handwriting on the envelope, I accepted it. The postage for the item was actually underpaid by 9p and that incurred a handling charge of £1.
I have a feeling my friend didnít go to the post office to get the item sized (it goes by size and weight) and simply stuck a stamp on it for what she thought was the correct weight.
I know this isn't a huge sum of money but naturally, I donít want this kind of thing happening again and itís always a possibility that it will.
How would one go about thanking their friend for the card but also letting them know about the deficient postage?
