Here's an extract of an email I got this morning from a scrapping magazine. I have been writing to them as I hadn't received two layouts back, or the compensation:
"Australia Post sent me a form for you to complete to receive a compensation valued at $100.00. Although this parcel was sent via registered post, they have admitted to misplacing the parcel. I’ll send you the form today and if you could complete it and send it to Australia Post, you will be entitled to the compensation."
Sigh. What value is a layout?
I really liked these two as they were about firsts - Jamie playing "boo" and walking.
I don't even have a large enough resolution image to print one out.
I guess I just have to be philosophical. This is one of the risks of submitting LOs for publication.
I've lost three layouts in the last two months and I'm waiting on probably at least $100 that I'll probably also never see...
Let's see, what can I learn from this?
1. Registered post isn't reliable
2. Mail redirect isn't reliable
