A tenner plus p&p so not disastrous, no.

Not really. The postroom guy shrugged and said it didn't really matter,
the PO was a long walk away on icy roads (first day in our new offices
for me) and the parcel was incredibly lightweight anyway. One small
piece of moulded plastic.

I've always sent stuff through the PO and coughed myself. This was an
exception for the above reasons.

I suppose you could make a case for me charging p&p and not spending the
dosh on it. So sue me.

Buyer may have noticed it was company franked, and is pretending it
didn't arrive knowing you won't have a COP. Anyway, at least you won't
have to fill in a claim form to the Royal Mail :D

You stole from your employers.
