This is a question Corporate Idiocy

Comedian Al Murray recounts a run-in with industrial-scale stupidity: "Car insurance company rang, without having sent me a renewal letter, asking for money. Made them answer security questions." In the same vein, tell us your stories about pointless paperwork and corporate quarter-wits

I applied for a temp Christmas job with Royal Mail and they insisted I apply online, as they refused to accept postal applications

I love the irony. Maybe they actually expected your application to get lost in the post! By the way, slightly O.T. why the hell does it cost 46p (First class I admit )to send an ordinary letter from here to the next town yet it costs £1.10 to send an Air Mail letter, the same weight, all the way from The UK to South Korea?
One year I had to go down to the post office to pick up a letter 'because it was underpaid' , it was classed as a 'large letter'. It was in fact a birthday card. The sender had just put an ordinary first class stamp on it and I had to go and pay the difference + a handling charge.By coincidence I had received 2 other cards that morning in my mail, The envelopes were EXACTLY the same size as the 'underpaid' one but with just a bog standard stamp on each one, but The postman thought they were OK I guess!

I was referring to BraynDedd, (but now realise my comment won't make sense to those who have him on ignore)
