Re: International Shipping Costs?

The south east gets a bad rap when it comes to urbanization but I live just 15 miles outside the M25 on the edge side of the largest conurbation south of the Thames and I can see sheep on the hill opposite our landing window.

Re: Post Office / Parcelforce Scam

A bit off topic but I like the guy(s) who have registered their username as customer support, customer services, etc and reply to social media wingers in exactly the way the real CS folk wished they could do, such as telling said winger to take a long walk on a short pier then plug their toaster in...
