Ive just got a card through the door saying the post office have a letter(card) for my son who was 10 on Monday, postage has to be paid! £1.17 Do I go and collect it or do I go and have a look if they let me and reject it if it's from his sister who doesnt speak to any of us ( drugs related) I think go down see if they will let me have a look if there is nothing inside buy feeling it return to sender, I know her address, We had a bit of a kick in the guts weve just found out she's got married!!!!!!!!

Go down and pay it, if you recognise the writing then just return it to sender. Or open it, see what it says and then bin it....
#3
they might let you look at it but not sure if they'll let you grope it to see if theres owt inside. seller on here did exaclty same to me so cost me an extra 1.45 for what i bought. really annoys me that people cant even post some things correctly. not even likes its hard. put the right number of stamps on it!!!!! or even easier, go and ask them at the post office. its just laziness. grrrrrrr. getting wound up thinking about it already!
#4

#5

To be honest I find it sad that because his sister (your daughter?) has an addiction you are shutting her off, an addiction is an illness in a way, letting him have the card will show she still cares enough about her brother to send a card and may ease any worries he may be having (either openly or in private), I'm sure she didnt set out with the intention of getting an addiction.

This may be her way of trying to open the door back into the family, of getting communication flowing again.

Yet you want to keep the door firmly shut on her, family is important no matter what someone has done, drugs mess with your mind as well as your body and can cause a person to do things they wouldnt dream of sober and straight.

There comes a point with all addicts that they realise enough is enough and this goes one of two ways, they seek help or they no longer wish to live, family rejection can easily tip the balance the wrong way, accept the card show her that she will have family support if thats what she chooses.

I couldn't agree more.

Surely you should pass the card to your son. His sister at least went to the effort to show she remembered

Well said :thumbsup:

a card for a child from their sister - sorry but you have to pay for that, annoying though it is that it isn't stamped.

I'm afraid talking about feeling it first makes you sound very mercenary.
#11
I think you should go for it,stamps do fall off sometimes.It be nasty not to go get it. Royal Mail £1 handling fees are rip off though,they make enough.
#12
Royal Mail will let you look at the envelope but won't let you open it. I had two birthday cards for my son with badges on - unfortunately these require a large 1st and not a regular sized stamp - this could be the reason for the charge. Either way - it's for your son - it's good to get cards and it not that much in the scheme of things.
#13
It'sprobably someone who has put a standard second or first class stamp on the card, but it's either too thick or large and needed a larger stamp value. The post office aren't supposed to show you the letter, but my local one usually does.
#14
Totally agree :thumbsup:

I was asked NOT to take my two younger sons round their flat anymore, Even though my husband was gaurantor becasuse my 9 year old at the time got chocolate over her boyfriends ps3. Guess who gave my son the chocolate at the time!!! yes her boyfriend, How stupid it that! I really am a most flexible parent! I wouldn't dream of shuting the door on any of my kids ever, they are my kids whatever

They dont if you put a good dollop of spit on the back!

You can go to the sorting office and ask to see the letter. Sometimes it's spam mail. You have the right to refuse to pay if you don't want to take possession of it. In my experience the sorting office is very good about this, and will even let you open the letter just to see if it's actually something you want and not junk mail.
