A friend of mine last year sent a large package of christmas presents
home to Australia. He paid £60 for postage, the guy in the Post Office
ticked the wrong box and it went the slow way.
It was posted in November and arrived in May. At least by then they
assumed it was lost and give him £400 compensation. I don't think it
was worth the grief his mother gave him for "Forgetting about us, now
you live over there etc."
