And, then I was reminded today when I had to go to the Post Office and submit our change of address form. Oh, US Postal Service. How I sooooo took you for granted when living in the US-and for that, I will forever be sorry. I sincerely apologize. I want to thank you for delivering my mail to me (unlike my current post man who is completely incapable), and I want to thank you for not charging me an extortionate amount of money (or, anything for that matter!) when I submit a change of address form when I move. Mind you, this could possibly explain why you're currently bankrupt, but I don't want to split hairs...
The UK Post Office, in their piss-poor way, thinks it's OK to charge me £250 for 6 months of mail forwarding. £125 for Simon. £125 for me. Because we have different.last.names. Same house. Same address. Both moving. Different last names. And for that we're being penalized.
Given the track record of mail delivery the past 4 years (my magazine subscriptions 'mysteriously' stopped getting delivered....and last week, I took delivery of *all* of my neighbors mail-one of dozens of mis-deliveries...), I get the sincere feeling that submitting the form doesn't really matter-and we're very likely to only receive 10-15% of all of the mail that we'll be due.
