I tried to mail a letter today and the post man wrote a note saying I needed more postage. It's a Forever stamp so shouldn't it work??

Ah...I think I figured it out. My letter was going over seas. Apparently international stamp prices have gone up. I didn't realize in order to send a regular old letter to Ireland required extra different postage.
My last letter I sent there went just fine with a regular forever stamp.

I think your postman is an idiot. Forever stamps are called forever because they will always work unless your envelope is an odd size or shape or it weighs too much for a normal first class stamp.

Thats dump I would question him or the post office about it but like others said the forever stamp is just for that.

The forever stamp should work, unless he meant that you needed more than one stamp? - was the letter oversize or weight?
