Once again, slowness is my middle name. ( I lied -- actually, it's Karen.) I was hoping to devote this month's newsletter to a new product page.
isn't there yet. And at the rate I'm going, it may not be there next month either. The short answer is -- good
intentions blahblahblah and I never met 4,000 projects that I didn't want to start simultaneously.
So on (or back)
to the mundane stuff: postal rates. Seems the Post Office still isn't sure what they're doing with the new
rates and classifications. I just got an envelope back today that has been making the rounds of the postal offices
for 9 days now. I could have walked it through faster. Reason? "Insufficient postage" according to the little
sticker. Which wouldn't be so weird except that I spent 1/2 hour at the Orange
countyPO talking to the supervisor about the new rates
and what constitutes what classification. Then the PO supervisor told me EXACTLY how much postage I needed for this
envelope. Which I put on. And which their central office deemed insufficient. HELLLOOOOO??????
you hear the news tomorrow night about a middle aged lady in California going postal -- it was me. Please send nice cards to my jail address,
which will be the entire contents of the July newsletter.
The good news is -- overseas small package rates have
been un-re-classified. Which means that they're back to being classified as what they were, except a little bit more
money -- but not the huge rate increase that the Post Office PUBLISHED ON THEIR WEBSITE last month. If you can figure
out what that un-re-classification is -- please write the Post Office. I'm sure they'd love to know.
No, I don't have any.
