    Hello,

    It is that time again for a new thread as the old one is about to approach its 150th page.

    Thanks to sarah1972 for posting the last thread

    Please note in post number two there is now a list of FAQ that had been asked a lot through the old thread. I thought this would be useful too add because of the same question coming up page after page.

    Happy Posting

    I was live again after 3 weeks and one of those weeks I never received anything.

    Hmmm. I'm on re-training but the web page shows no items for next week. Yesterday, I get an envelope from Swan Lane with 2 live SMARTS and these are now showing in stock. Does this mean I'm about to go live after only 3 lots of training - hope so Nothing under "Non R-number items" to tell me what exciting magazines to watch for either....

Checked online this morning and nothing in the posting plan this week or next - but they would like one of the SMARTS back. Would I complain if they keep sending me the stamps for doing nothing

    I've just had details that I'm starting back on the panel and my new pack should arrive soon but no stamps as yet. You seem to have struck lucky :-)

    Have just had the 4 week warning to my stint ending email. Looks like I have at least one more cube to post but quite enjoyed it this time.

    Oh and if the sender who wrote "Hello" & a smiley face on the back of a Jiffy Envelope I received today is on here then "Hello" back.

    So have you had the conversation with your neighbour that you are both part of the postal panel?

    Aside from the fact it's all supposed to be covert...it's rather funny that by chance your near neighbour is part of it too....

    Sorry just wondered if it was a concious thing to both apply or totally random that you both take part....

    Although now I re read your post I think you're saying the house for delivery was 2 doors down from the post office.....
    no further questions!!!!!

    Although I once had to battle with a lovely lady in the post office who instead of me posting a cube was happy to walk it round to the recipient as it was on her way home from work...and she didn't want me wasting my money on postage!

    Never had this before but received an email from Kantar. I suppose they are just showing me they care. Bless!

    I had that one yesterday. Also one the other day asking me if I had entered the correct date on an item I received saying the date I put was the day it should have been posted. How could I have entered it if I had not received it? I always enter items the day I receive them.

    Just wondered if the "reverse" recipient of a letter I received a couple of days ago reads this thread?

    Sadly someone can't tell the difference between a LARGE BROWN envelope with a 98p LARGE LETTER 1st class stamp stuck to it and a Small White envelope bearing a normal 56p 2nd class stamp


    I received the correct R number (it has my postcode on it) stating

    Large Brown, Handwritten, Stamped 1st class @ 98p ......

    ... in a Small White sent 2nd class

    Anyone here get the exact opposite in the last couple of days?
