Hey JR8, maybe next time you could just print your own stamps, like this guy:JR8 wrote:An added irony is that I have a post-box 50 metres away, in front of a 24hr convenience store, but no way to buy stamps within a mile
I saw that article, brilliant! It's like breaking a spell, an assumed historic convention.Mi Amigo wrote: Hey JR8, maybe next time you could just print your own stamps, like this guy:

Ah, come on, one shouldn't have to research how to buy a stamp.Strong Eagle wrote:Sounds like a lot or whinging over your own failure to plan and research.JR8 wrote:Yesterday, I had to go out and buy stamps for an important letter back home. I knew what it weighed, and hence what postage I needed.
But the PO is not open on Saturday pm, or Sunday, nor does it have a stamp vending machine. Shops apparently don't sell stamps either.
So I had to find a 'super-efficient' SAM machine, which took another 15 minutes online to locate. I then went there, only to find it doesn't take coins or banknotes.
So I had to limp perhaps a mile home, to get a bankcard, to hobble back to the shopping centre and machine, to simply buy a stamp. Then additional roving to find a post-box.
And this is progress?
