PostSubject: And so ends my criminal mail order career...   Fri Feb 08, 2013 6:12 am

I had a (nother) unpleasant experience with my local post office last time I went to mail something out. I always seem to go when there is this wiry old hatchet faced woman serving, and she has the sense of humour of a particularly unfunny rock. I try to be nice, but its evidently pointless.

So, I put my parcel on the scale to get the shipping cost, and she glowered at me and demanded to know what was in it, and furthermore: was it DANGEROUS?? I'd already filled out the customs label which she could see, so I thought it was a bit of a redundant question, and read out the customs label to her verbatim which stated it was a broken pipe going to the states for a repair, sort of challenging her to continue down this line of questioning. She clammed up and processed the parcel. As I was about to leave she jabbed a pamphlet at me and said in cold tones "You need to read this. It's very serious. We wouldn't want you to get in... trouble." I read down the front page and burst out laughing, it was a page of images of what you are now 'not allowed' to send in the post, many of them were illegal. The one that made me laugh was a big marijuana leaf. So I asked her if it was still ok to send heroin and cocaine. "ABSOLUTELY NOT!" she shot back with vitriol and not a trace of humour.

Anyway, I thought you guys might be interested:




I'm just off to pack my next parcel, its a lovely shipment of ebola, C4, an M4 and ammo wrapped in human remains. Oh and a baggie of acid.

My guess is his response to the teller was truthful:

Andy - if we don't hear from you for a while at least we'll all know what happened to you. Laughing

What kind if acid? Acetic acid (found in vinegar)? Carbonic acid? Hydrofluoric acid? Formic acid? Hydrochloric acid? Sulfuric acid, or maybe D-Lysergic Acid Diethylamide 25? Razz



lol!

Also what kind of idiot would answer the question 'is it dangerous' with a yes? Oh hell yes, its genocidal, I'm glad to get it away from myself in all honesty. Wait, why are you calling the police? Muppet.

She's seen me post a lot of parcels marked with tobacco samples, I do think she thinks I'm some kind of small-time marijuana smuggler. I imagine they'd look similar if they were examined by xray.

I'm pretty sure anything approaching lemon juice would land me in trouble.

I would go up there when they were busy, wait my turn in line and waste a bit of her time. Not so much as to really piss off the people behind me but enough to mess with her a little.

I can see the headline now - 'Alleged International Drug Smuggler Arrested for Harassing UK Postal Worker!' Laughing

That's funny. I know they're required to ask all the questions, but I get weary of it.

I want to make a T-Shirt that says, "NO, it doesn't contain anything fragile, liquid, perishable, or potentially hazardous." That way I can just point to the shirt. Very Happy

Ha! Similar experience with the postal service here back when I worked in a forensics lab.

"What's in the package?"
"Um remains"
"Is it dangerous?"
"Only if you open it!"

Never again man never again! And yes it really was a package of human remains which was legal to be shipped at the time. 4 1/2 hours later I returned to work where my boss just totally lost it laughing!

Heh. Sounds like she had to rise twice and pray thrice after you puckered her up like that. Laughing What a sour old sack. Laughing Glad to hear post workers are apparently made in a factory someplace and exported worldwide.
