    Default When special doesn't quite mean what you say

    Was watching Lee Ridley on BBC News

    "You hear all about Special Needs, Special Schools, Special Care
    However, I get quite worried when I hear about Special Forces"
    Very good, point well made and I don't think I will look at such news reports the same way in the future...

    Hmm, about 30% use this type
    I could wind them up next time...
    That might explain why the latest one ended up being nine days late!

    Royal Mail tried to wriggle out of that, but that's another story
    First they offered stamps to the value originally paid for the postage, I sent them back advising it was Special Delivery, not Recorded Delivery
    Then they wanted proof of any loss or incurred costs, and so on, and so forth
    Eventually they paid out the full £50 plus the postage costs of my second reply (as I had to send that Recorded delivery!)
