Postal Service Snafu
So, while I was mailing some more packages, I noticed the postal service employee behind the desk was ringing up a price that was significantly different than it was when I mailed the first batch using their automated postal station (basically a kiosk with a scale that weighs your package and spits out a postage sticker).
I asked the clerk about it and she said that the padded envelopes weren't machine readable, so there's an additional fee on them. Of course, it doesn't indicate this anywhere on or in the automated kiosk, nor is there anywhere in the software to allow you to indicate what shape your package is.
The clerk seemed to think that all those packages I mailed using the automated kiosk (the first 20 or so) will either be returned to me, or will arrive COD.
If yours arrives COD, I truly apologize. I put the postage on it that the kiosk said it needed. It shouldn't be more than about 10 cents.
If it gets returned to me, I'll e-mail you and get it back in the mail the next day.
I'll e-mail everyone whose packages went out that day a heads up tomorrow.
