This makes me laugh!  I went to one post office where it was going to cost $1.39 each to mail my invites because they are square and had to go parcel.  I drove 10 miles to the next PO.  They were $1.05.  Needless to say, I mailed them from the $1.05 place.  I just had 2 more added so I guess I will have to drive 10 miles out of my way to mail them!

Omg, I feel you!! We went and took a COMPLETED invite to the post office to have it weighed. We were told, by TWO clerks, that we were well under the $0.61 cent stamp, but we bought those anyway just to play it safe. We go to mail all our invites and suddenly, “Oh no, this isn’t right. It’s $0.64” WTF?!?! Oh, I was SO mad. “Well there’s nothing we can do about it. We’ll send them, but don’t be mad when all 76 invites get sent back to you”. Lady, I did not pull this out of my ass…YOUR workers told us we were in the clear & now you’re giving me this bs?? I know damn well had I just sent them through the drive-up mail boxes there would’ve been no problem. But nooooo…

Ugh! This just frustrates me all over again, lol. It had nothing to do w/ the 3 cent difference…they were just being a-holes.

Ya, the post office today had no idea what “canceling’ even was let alone ‘Hand Canceling.” Our’s were .64 also… and he slipped one through some device thing and verified it was a “normal letter.” 

Our best man’s dad is a letter carrier, I knew i should have let him handle the invites 😉
