http://www.arrse.co.uk/cpgn2/Forums/viewtopic/t=52369.html Have just taken some boxes to local post office. Clerk weighed them and said too heavy - 2kg weight limit applies. So, I will have to split them up into a number of smaller boxes. Where is the point in this - if the boxes are to be transmitted the overall weight is the same. Surely the handlers are able to carry weights in excess of 2kg without fracturing their limp little wrists. Suppose the limit is for fairness when they get round to the 'see who can throw the furthest' game. I bet they don't weigh the body bags when they send the poor buggers home?
