Sorry Allan and Betty

You won’t be getting your Valentine’s Day card on time because the USPS apparently didn’t learn their math. Also, why did they capitalize ‘Due’?
In case the images are blurry, the stamp reads “Returned for Addil Postage Exceeds Max Standard Size 6 1/8″ x 11 1/2″ or 1/4″ Thick & Weight 1oz or Less an Add’l Surcharge of 13 cents is Due.”

UPDATE (3:30 pm) – I just got back from the post office and apparently the message stamped on is unclear.  In addition to maximum size requirements, mail must fall within a certain width/height ratio in order to be machinable.  So it took me 30 minutes to pay 13 cents to get a card delivered late — thank you USPS!
