I think most of us on here use Royal Mail for letters and packages and think nothing of it. If you are sending a package and you're not sure of the exact weight, it is common sense to take it to the nearest post office to be weighed and stamped. I am amazed by the number of posts from people on Yahoo! Answers who have apparently just started on eBay as a seller, but genuinely have no idea how to get the item to the buyer. They have sold their item and received payment, but instead of sending the item out as promptly as possible, they're on Yahoo! Answers asking how to sent it in a "What do I do?" type of way. Another one is people who have applied for a credit card, been approved and received the card, but now they're on Y/A asking how to use it, or how much is the minimum payment. One woman had received a card with a £300 credit limit, and she was asking how she could get £2,600 with the card because "she needed the money". Whatever happened to common sense? You don't get involved with things that you don't understand. I feel sorry for the person waiting for their eBay package because the seller has no idea how to get it to him.
