Well of course there are no "rules", and I ain't an expert, but I've
heard that its considered impolite to drop a new register until the old
one's done.  (This provides an opportunity for the luck person behind
you to get theirs in.)  As far as getting it back, I notice that most
people promise to reimburse postage plus a reward (non-cash) in
gratitude.  This is generally written on the front inside cover, &
sometimes repeated at the back.  I dunno how often it works.

On a related note, does anyone besides me go crazy w/ the top-bound
registers?  I never can figure out which way is up, & half the time when
I finish a page, can't remember which way I was going through it!
