The First Time This Happened To Me Ever & I Get Two! LOL

by Bryan Glynn, April 3, 2013

Maybe I should play the lottery…

 

  • PsycotikMind

    How much did it cost? I don’t even know how that would work. What if you don’t have exact change? Does the postman carry change?

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      A few bucks. Yes they carry some but I gave her exact to make things easier :)

  • http://irratebass.worpdress.com irratebass

    Lol D’oh!!!! That is odd, go out to the 7-eleven Bryan the lottery is calling….do a video on the HLO site of you buying the winning ticket, now remember you have to WALK to the 7-eleven =8-p

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      YES!! Good plan :)

  • kurngar

    That is just funny and yes you should play the lottery. I would think with all the lottery entries that this would have happened before though, hopefully this incident is not a taste of things to come.

  • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

    After all that, all I get is a bare minimum lottery entry of a Gurkha and a Mark Twain, and a couple pre-release cigars I already had…sheesh! lol Maybe I can catch the mail lady for a refund…

  • vscarpine

    Hahaha thats crazy I had no idea that this could even happen…what ever happened to return to sender??

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      It’s still an option…

  • MorganGeo

    Hillarious! Only you Bryan. I’ll take the Gurhka. I’ll reimburse you the postage you paid for it. Not willing to pay full retail. LOL

  • CigarStrawn

    Wow that sucks. I will laugh though if they win the lottery. :-p Couldn’t you have told them to return it to the sender?

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      Yes I could have

  • smokethis

    LOLLL. That is too funny. Yes Play the lotto!!

  • MR_EXPRESS

    /facepalm

  • gtclark

    What happens if you refuse to pay? Does the round trip bill go back to sender? Or does the USPS just eat the cost and keep the package?

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      It would have gone back

      • Kace

        See that is why the post office is losing money. It would have cost just as much to ship back and who pays the bill at that point? They prob just eat the loss. Who knows.

  • SsgtJerikUSMC

    I’m really surprised the postal company still does this. I can see 2 things happening, a lot of pissed off people, and a lot of unpaid postage in which people return to sender, pretty much doubling their work. Sorry you got screwed man. Well, double screwed…

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      That’s what has me wondering too – why did it make it past the ‘postage due’ point? It should automatically go back!

      • yosef5

        They do make mistakes.Anyway enjoy what you got

      • swj045

        yes, you could go broke paying for everyones postage

  • kb9311

    I’ve never heard of this before, I always thought it was just return to sender and that was it, good to know u Can still get the stuff…. I guess.

    • swj045

      should have split them with the postman for the postage

  • Wucioswong

    maybe they’ll call you collect to apologize

  • Mr Rojas

    That is hilarious!
    Well, at least they still got to be entered in the lottery.
    Now everyone who sees the video should try and mail things properly. It was nice of u tap pay it though, many people would have sent it back.

    • david121

      Yeah if it were me, I’m not sure if I would pay the fee.. if i was having a bad day i’d just give it back to the mail carrier and not deal with others people’s mistakes lol

      • swj045

        we have a new lottery,cheap sticks and free postage.who would have thought

  • pato1001

    I can honestly say I have never experienced that! That was cool of you to pay for there postage! Bye the way what did you get???

    • david121

      He got a Gurkha and a Mark Twain, yeah not much :/

  • new2sticks

    Could be a big reason USPS is so far in the red. If they would collect up front, we wouldn’t be losing saturday mail delivery!

  • lostonmonday

    This has happened to me a few time, and once it was for 2 cents! I bet USPS spent more on the sticker and envelope to collect my hard earned pennies.

  • Kace

    That is to funny. I say you send them back and make them repay the postage on the return. Lol.

  • garlar10

    This is great, lol. You are a better man than I am Bryan. I would have sent them back. Well I will be sure pay the full postage on these if I ever send you anything. Keep the videos coming!

  • puffrey

    Wow!! Does this mean the lottery winner is going recieve “postage due”? LOL

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      YES! You just saved me $450/yr in shipping fees! ROTF!!

      • Rob

        I wouldn’t mind getting 150 sticks and only paying for shipping.

        • swj045

          you can sign me up for that also.

      • puffrey

        Anything I can do to help, I am sure none of us would have an issue getting 150 sticks and paying shipping only. I guess the positive from this is that we should all appreciate just how awesome the cigar lottery really is!

    • SsgtJerikUSMC

      I wouldn’t mind! I think it would be a good trade off and totally worth it.

  • david121

    Lol really nice of you to pick up the bill there Bryan! I’m not sure I wouldve done the same.. but I guess its good that the postage wasnt a lot

  • MorganGeo

    I’m sure the people that sent those in are horrified they showed up in a video like that. LOL I would be so embarrased that the next time I would send some good 30 year aged smokes. Hint Hint

  • Dale

    puffrey beat me to it…I was going to say if they win be sure to ship it postage due.

  • Rob

    I’ll admit this is pretty messed up but at the same time pretty damn funny.

  • RobinsonV

    Ha that’s nuts u would think it would get cought and sent back.

  • Walshy

    Wow!!! A Mark Twain? Is that even legal for the lottery. Haha. I havent heard of that in a very long time. 2 in the same day!!?? Crazy.

    • http://www.cigarobsession.com Bryan Glynn

      I looked it up to answer the same question when I saw it. $2.50/ea box price. Barely. I would certainly feel bad sending one in.

      • Chaz

        Ha! While certainly EXTREMELY grateful for my lottery win way back in the beginning, people do send in garbage. I have many sticks I will never smoke! Twain rolls in his grave.

  • stevenknisley

    Nice job picking up the bill Bryan, too bad the cigars weren’t better.

  • neocigaro

    Wow that would suck haha postage due thats just insane lol

  • neocigaro

    Whoever send the packages sure are lucky, that Bryan paid it for them haha.

  • JJO

    Looks like Iconic Leaf needs to recalibrate their shipping scale. The other one must have been put in a drop box. They won’t accept that at the counter.

  • Derek

    That’s a little funny. I also want to thank you Bryan for the rewards program, I love the site and I’ve been wanting to use it more and this is the perfect incentive!

  • Joseph Szeremet

    That is really embarrassing for the senders, but really hilarious for the rest of us.

  • Kace

    Can’t help but laugh. Get a new scale!

  • AngSolo

    Wasn’t Mark Twain/Samuel Clemens known for smoking cheap cigars? Althuogh it is said he did smoke many. As far as the postage thing I also thought they would just return to sender. Oh Well

  • USA2ndAmendment

    Dude, that sucks. I have not heard of that in many many years! I am assuming these are entries for the cigar lottery?

    • MorganGeo

      Yes, as per the earlier post above these were some crappy entries into the lottery.

    • JJO

      Actually, one of them is from a manufacturer, which is even more embarrassing.

  • Romel

    Funny! but that goes to show that some people need to take a trip to the post office. You’re a good guy bryan.

  • danzig777

    Wow, I would have not payed it, but that’s just me.

  • swj045

    if the person wins the lottery just mail them two back to him,postage due

  • Bpope31

    This seems more like a bad omen then a good one. Stay away from the lottery. Lol

  • gumby_130

    Postage cost = smoke what’s in it.
    P.s. Bryan thank you for the pro flower ad help me out with the wife. Happy wife means more time smoking.

  • tedski

    I guess people try to cut corners where ever they can … but this is a bit much.

  • Magicshark13

    Some people cant pay attention to things any more. WOW.

  • Marc

    That’s funny … What a stand up response Bryan… Your the best…

  • haneyte2000

    Being a mailman I hate postage due. I am always afraid that I am going to lose the money. I feel your pain

  • Boucher207

    I cant believe people do this!

  • Freddy62

    My uncle received a package with postage due a few years ago, and he was blaming the post man for ripping him off lol, so I had to calm him down and explain that he should not blame the post man but the sender instead! It was comical

  • sh40218

    That’s only happened to me once back in 2003 with a letter. It had that red stamp on it and a 14¢ postage due fee.

    A lot of work for 14¢, who has that fun job!?!

  • derek_straus

    I have had that happen to me but with a regular letter, the only reason i had to pay more is because the sender folded the letter oddly and it was thick.

  • curtpick

    get em Bryan !!!

    lol
