How long does the P.O keep items before returning them? It is 18 days in the UK.
It depends. If a parcel gets 'carded', i.e. the postman leaves a card to tell you to go to the post office to collect it yourself (sometimes lying about having attempted delivery to the address but nobody was home to receive it), the card usually states, "Please collect within five days." I think the actual operating procedure is to allow ten business days, which would be (if worst comes to worst) just
OK if my local post office 'starts the clock' on the day I fly out.

OTOH, which pen display case did you get?
Hmmm, I have no idea why that link wouldn't work when I click on it, but if I just pasted the URL into a browser window it works.

As always: 1. Implicit in everything and every instance I write on FPN is the invitation for you to judge me as a peer in the community. I think it's only due respect to take each other's written word in online discussion seriously and apply critical judgment. 2. I do not presume to judge for you what is right, correct or valid. If I make a claim, or refute a statement in a thread, and link to references and other information in support, I beseech you to review and consider those, and judge for yourself. I may be wrong. My position or say-so carries no more weight than anyone else's here, and external parties can speak for themselves with what they have published. 3. I endeavour to be frank and truthful in what I write, show or otherwise present when I relate my first-hand experiences that are not independently verifiable. If it is something you can test for yourself and see the results, I entreat you to do so.
