One day hopefully
Earlier today I read a news article that mentioned that some 6,000 Royal Mail workers are to be made redundant.
About an hour ago, the post arrived. Enclosed with it was a leaflet from Royal Mail, informing us that any current non bar coded postage stamps, need to be used by the 31st January 2023, or they become invalid.
Those with any unused non barcoded stamps are invited to put them in an envelope and send them freepost to 'Freepost Swap Out'.
With my opening sentence in mind, do you feel confident with doing this?

Sorry, I not getting the motorhome connection with your posting in motorhome chat. :unsure:
Me neither Paul, but I've been guilty before of inadvertently posting in the wrong forum, as recently as this week. :doh:

Personally. I'd be more concerned about the redundancy of 6000 Royal Mail workers, rather than if I'm going to get a few stamps exchanged or not. :(

Cheers

Jock. :)

You have obviously been a member of M/H/Fun far longer than I have, but you must concede there are many non motorhome threads and posts.
There is a section named 'U shaped Lounge' which allows and invites non motorhome relayed material.
Sorry but I think you being a little picky.

our local postie gets around £25k a year he said and is quite happy with his wage but would not cross the line as to not upset his work colleague, well things may change now.

I wonder what the union will do for them now, just don't get it if there's no money there's no money, if your not competitive jobs will be lost, the tail is wagging the dog in a lot of businesses now or trying to.

The Labour backed unions are playing fast and loose with workers jobs and livelihoods for political reasons, it’s time their actions were more restricted in law.
How will postal workers feel with the news that instead of more money they may not have a job.

Who will get the blame ? Answers on a postage stamp :fubar:

You are getting off lightly so far. I once had a very snotty repost from one prominent member on here because I unintentionally posted in the wrong section. I reported him to the webpage manager but got no response.

Two on Tour might be posted in the wrong section and perhaps not everyone agrees with the content, but is telling someone they need to get a job/li.fe really appropriate or necessary, I'm not sure it is.
Read it again!!!

Yup, read it again and it still contravenes rule one of the forum. (y)
The poster got the name wrong they think you wrote the original post. I am sorry if I offended you, I stooped to your level. I don't see why some people just like being mean to others. If you don't like people posting on the wrong forums just get a paper bag to breath into and calm down.
