USPS Faulty Tape Measure Nearly Costs Seller Extra $45
Today something very strange happened. Just wondering if you have ever heard of this happening before.
My son who sells on eBay took a package to the post office to mail and the postal clerk told him it was an oversize package and he owed $45.00 more.
He knew that couldn't be because he was under the 84" length and gird. It was 80". So she measured it again and it came out 85" again, so he said let me see your tape measure and lo and behold the tape measure started at 5".
I asked him if he thought it was cut and he said no because it had the metal tip at the end. When he pointed out to her that her tape measure started at 5" she still would not accept the package so he went to another post office and mailed with no problem.
Just wonder if you have ever heard of this happening before? Please don't use my name or email address. Thanks
