So I took a couple of boxes into the Post Office to get quotes for a couple fine buyers of my goods. Granted, I had them in official Priority Mail packaging, but getting a shipping quote for parcel post has never been an issue- until today. Now, maybe the guy I was dealing with had his panties in a bunch or something... but the first thing he started to do was snivel over the makeshift box I cobbled together using 2 Priority Mail boxes for 20th Anniversary Optimus. I told him I wante dthe cheapest shipping- parcel post. At first he didn't seem to comprehend that. So I added "I'll wrap it up". His eyes widened... "Well, if you wrap up this box without telling us, you might be able to get away with it. But, if we open it and discover you are using one of our boxes, the person you are shipping this to WILL have to pay the difference in shipping." Open it up? "Um..." I started to ask: "excuse me, but... open up?" Yeah, open up. Apparently, if you ship something Parcel Post, these guys reserve the right to open up and inspect your package. And with Priority Mail they don't. At least according to this walking talking USPS twit. What kind of BS is this? Now I have shipped a number of items and this is the 1st time I come across this. Seems to me that, if this is true, is a violation of the 4th Amendment. Has ayone else heard of this crap?
