Customs opened my order! Eep

Postby Kelshandra » Thu Dec 22, 2016 02:53 am

Had a minor panic when I picked up my last order- it had been opened by customs. 'Oh no, don't tell me stamps are now banned!'
Fortunately they didn't see the need to open the lbe- which is odd as that was all that was there in that order other than the slip from the shop :?

Parcel from abroad containing little envelopes. These are not the little envelopes you are looking for.
I wonder if their scanner can detect triangle sports?

I've not had time to look in the LBE today. I've now moved into the new place fully and completely. I am a home owner! No one breathe in case something breaks cos now I have to fix it!

Perhaps the AM-PO should change their inscription from
"NEITHER RAIN NOR SNOW NOR GLOM OF NIT CAN STAY THESE MESENGERS ABOT THEIR DUTY"
to
"NEITHER RAIN NOR SNOW NOR GLOM OF NIT NOR NOSY PARKERS FROM THE CUSTUMS AND REVENOO CAN STAY THESE MESENGERS ABOT THEIR DUTY"
:lol:
