§218 I was robbed today by the Israeli postal service!September 3, 2008
OK Folks, time for a rant here. I can’t believe this! I received from a friend overseas a gift today.
So, we received a letter about this little gift that we were expecting, it weighed all of 7 small little pounds. The dimensions of the box, less than a shoe box but a little taller – probably the same amount of space inside. So we aren’t talking huge here.
The letter only said that there’s a toll to pay and then a number to call. I called the number yesterday only to be told that our little 7 lb box of love would cost us…. get this… 209NIS to receive!!!!!
Im not one bit sorry. I loved each and every item in the box as much as the people who sent it. But gosh, I feel like I was robbed! I will have to think carefully next time on how and if to let people ship me things.
Well, at least the post office worker wished me a nice day…
