Sorry, but I need to have a little tantrum here 😦
Every few weeks (and sometimes more frequently) I get one of these in my Post Box. Effectively, someone has sent me a submission or competition entry but hasn’t put enough stamps on the envelope which means while they save 60cents, I have to pay a penalty which amounts to $2.10 for that 60 cent shortfall! And, I have to wait in line at the small and often busy PO instead of just collecting my mail and heading home. Admittedly, most people just haven’t realised, (perhaps because there are actually so few stamps on mail these days with so many pre-paid items) and they are happy to send me stamps to cover the cost when I tell them but some don’t which is a bit disappointing. Positive Words magazine only just covers its printing and postage costs each month, meaning I do all the work (except printing) for free and don’t get anything for my time or those extra little bits and pieces (paper, power etc).
So . . .please, please, please put the correct postage on your mail 🙂 for a quick reference that is – 60cents(Aus) for a small of business envelope (not too thick-under 20mm), $1.20 for A4 envelopes up to 125grams and $1.80 for up to 250 grams.
Thank you 🙂
