I wrote a ridiculous long rant about the Post Office yesterday. Full of f*bombs, too.
And then I got a little embaressed and deleted the post. But check it out, one of my readers sent me this information:
I used to mail international packages for my business. It's easier if you create a Click and Ship account online with the post office and fill out all the forms online. I print the label with a laser printer on regular paper and use a glue stick to attach it to the package. You will need a scale to weigh the package. It also doesn't hurt to do a search on the PO site to read up on the restrictions and requirements for packages to Korea. Then, because it's international, you have to hand the package in at the counter. If they're used to seeing you there, you won't have to wait in line, just put it on the counter of the friendliest mail person make eye contact and go.
I hope this takes some of the frustration out of it. I feel your pain...
PS - love your blog!
