I will say at our post office, if you were to put hand cancel on these, it wouldn't cost you any more, however it might of been because the button in their weight more than just a normal 39 cent card would..

Please, don't be so hard on the post office and understand that they are doing there jobs with a smile every single day, come rain, snow,hail, sleet and whatever else you can think of kind of weather.


Thank you for allowing me to add my 2 cents worth.
In my world our post office people, move slower than snails. They fully state out loud, no matter how fast I go, I get paid the same. Ha ha... I am not sure they are all trained correctly. And, we only have one automated machine and they are angry and do not want anymore, because their jobs will be gone. Meanwhile the lines are out two sets of doors....
I have had a recent upset where a package was broken into, and I think this guy who was not an official looking person, but was doing some "stuff" around the post office, overheard my package was extremely heavy. They were all joking, ha ha. Guess what??? package torn into. Heavy things, might mean an xbox??, etc.. So I had a full week of ebay issues.
My advice. Go Priority. Wrap Well. Offer insurance.
