Overseas Xmas Package Rates Collide With Common Sense

Today a round-trip flight to Copenhagen for an actual person costs $760.  Mailing two 12”x 8”x 3” packages with a total weight of less than ten pounds through the Post Office cost $100.00.  This is madness.

In keeping with my income, I knew the shipping would be expensive and accepted that I could bite a bullet costing around $35.00 and still send nice presents.  What I did not conceive is that freight would cost fifty percent as much as the gifts cost.

At what level of insanity does the Post Office calculate these exorbitant rates?  There is an immorality attached to gouging.

I do not live in a Pollyanna world, but I will never accept this culture of greed.
