Hi guys! Angel, the shipping fairy here.
So I'm doing my darndest to get the last dvds shipped out all across the world. But we've run into a snag. The US Postal Service. I'm really tempted to call it 'the human garbage employment service' at this point. Don't get me wrong, I love my local mailman. But, when the service window chick goes 'on break' after they've been open for only 15 minutes....well, that just sets the tone.
I dropped off the packages for the US, Canada, and Australia, with what was sufficient postage compared to the rates we were given when we last shipped dvds to you guys. I've now been informed, that the USPS, as of January 26, 2014, despite having no changes to their service or sorting equipment. have decided that a DVD in a padded envelope, no longer qualifies for large envelope rates (its considered rigid, and that is its only disqualifier from the large envelope rate). Its now a package. Oh, did they forget to mention, that there's also a new special stamp rate for commercial shipments? And that we don't qualify? US dvd shipments now cost $2.50, when they used to be $1.32. International shipments are edging close to $10 a package.
The short of it is, I still have your packages. They're all nicely autographed, and shoved in their padded packs, even the international ones have their forms filled out and stuck on the back. But I need to add a shitload more postage to them. You will get them! James will eat ramen for the next 6 months, but YOU WILL GET THEM.
Shoot me a message if you want the address of the post office to send nasty postcards to.
with love and spacedicks,
Angel the shipping fairy
