    Is annoying when that happens, only 23p postage wasnt paid but they have added a £1 on to it - same happened to me with a letter from drs, wasnt happy because it was a totally pointless letter too!

    dont pick it up , they might re direct it back to the sender, then the sender sends it again if your lucky and then you dont pay owt..simple ish :thinking:

    Lol! We had to pick it up because we were waiting for something from dad in canada, and thought it was that. Soooooooo annoyed when we found out it was a pointless letter from the doctor!

    Welcome to the NHS

    I hate to imagine how much money is wasted on mail with the NHS, an e-mail & sms system would be preferred if you subscribed to it I'm sure, just implimenting such a system would massively rip off the NHS because every company knows you can quote £10 to do a job for the Gov. then charge £30 later down the line and get away with it and get paid

    Yup, I often get letters saying when my appointment is more than once, and yet I turned up to an appointment last week to be told that I never had an appointment. Showed her a letter and she said "yes but we cancelled it in december, must of forgot to tell you" soooooo annoyed - cost me £25 in taxis!

    Yeah!! I know...

    I take my letter to them, they put it into a van where a man drives it 30 miles to a sorting office where a huge machine sorts it out and then a man puts it into a lorry and drives it to another sorting office where a man sorts them out then they put it in another van and another man drives it to a post office where another man, or maybe a lady this time, sorts them out and gives them to a man (or a lady) on a bicycle who then goes and pops it through the door of the person I've addressed it to all within 24 hours and they charge me upwards of 30 or 40 pence!! IT'S BLOODY OUTRAGEOUS...

    I had that, fortunately the head guy at the sorting office is an old friend of my parents. I gave him a ring and he told me that they are supposed to let you see what the item is before you decide to pay for it. Went back into the sorting office and the (now red-faced) employee had the item waiting. :thumbsup:

    In this case it was an e-bay order where the seller had short changed the postage.
