Maybe I should play the lottery…
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?
A few bucks. Yes they carry some but I gave her exact to make things easier 🙂
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
YES!! Good plan 🙂
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.
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…
Hahaha thats crazy I had no idea that this could even happen…what ever happened to return to sender??
It’s still an option…
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
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?
Yes I could have
LOLLL. That is too funny. Yes Play the lotto!!
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?
It would have gone back
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.
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…
That’s what has me wondering too – why did it make it past the ‘postage due’ point? It should automatically go back!
They do make mistakes.Anyway enjoy what you got
yes, you could go broke paying for everyones postage
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.
should have split them with the postman for the postage
maybe they’ll call you collect to apologize
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.
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
we have a new lottery,cheap sticks and free postage.who would have thought
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???
He got a Gurkha and a Mark Twain, yeah not much :/
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!
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.
That is to funny. I say you send them back and make them repay the postage on the return. Lol.
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!
Wow!! Does this mean the lottery winner is going recieve “postage due”? LOL
YES! You just saved me $450/yr in shipping fees! ROTF!!
I wouldn’t mind getting 150 sticks and only paying for shipping.
you can sign me up for that also.
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!
I wouldn’t mind! I think it would be a good trade off and totally worth it.
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
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
puffrey beat me to it…I was going to say if they win be sure to ship it postage due.
I’ll admit this is pretty messed up but at the same time pretty damn funny.
Ha that’s nuts u would think it would get cought and sent back.
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.
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.
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.
Nice job picking up the bill Bryan, too bad the cigars weren’t better.
Wow that would suck haha postage due thats just insane lol
Whoever send the packages sure are lucky, that Bryan paid it for them haha.
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.
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!
That is really embarrassing for the senders, but really hilarious for the rest of us.
Can’t help but laugh. Get a new scale!
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
Dude, that sucks. I have not heard of that in many many years! I am assuming these are entries for the cigar lottery?
Yes, as per the earlier post above these were some crappy entries into the lottery.
Actually, one of them is from a manufacturer, which is even more embarrassing.
Funny! but that goes to show that some people need to take a trip to the post office. You’re a good guy bryan.
Wow, I would have not payed it, but that’s just me.
if the person wins the lottery just mail them two back to him,postage due
This seems more like a bad omen then a good one. Stay away from the lottery. Lol
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.
I guess people try to cut corners where ever they can … but this is a bit much.
Some people cant pay attention to things any more. WOW.
That’s funny … What a stand up response Bryan… Your the best…
Being a mailman I hate postage due. I am always afraid that I am going to lose the money. I feel your pain
I cant believe people do this!
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
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!?!
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.
get em Bryan !!!
