I finally got around to mailing an ORT jar and pillowcase to my sister in California. I went to the post office and used the fancy machine in the lobby. It weighs the envelope and asks you a bunch of questions, including the zip code you are mailing to. Works great and the package was on the way to California!
Wrong! It came back yesterday with postage due of 34 cents. If I had guessed at the postage, I wouldn't be surprised but the postage was calculated by the stupid machine. On top of that, they put the postage due sticker right over Robin's address (it seems to be removable but it tells you to put the additional postage on it - how would that work?). I put a 37 cent stamp on the package, crossed out the postage due sticker (the other option printed on it) and stuck it back in the mail box at the post office tonight. Hopefully it will be on its way to California this time.
