they could not deliver an item because there was a fee to pay.
When I went to collect the item it was a small letter with a first class
stamp on it. The woman behind the counter kindly demonstrated that it
fitted through the small letter slot on the test board and offered no
justification for the charge. I paid the charge because it was only
£1.50 but I now wonder what would have happened if I just took the item
and walked out? Obviously they know where I live but would I have
committed any offence?
They couldn't really accuse me theft as the item clearly belongs to me
and since they haven't delivered the item (I collected it from the
depot) I don't really see that they could claim that I owed then
anything for the service.
