Royal Mail Suck

5:28pm just got in from work a bit early. Got the card through the door... "Sorry, you were out"... So Royal mail came with a parcel. Cool. I wonder what it is.

Collection times:
Mon-Fri 0900 - 1700

Um, really? I just called them to make sure it wasn't a really really dumb typo. Nope, it isn't. I can only collect the parcel between the times that 99% of the poopulation are working. Smooth.

I have 7 days to collect it before they send it back. Nice of them.

Okay, now remember I have no idea who this is from? Well, they can't tell me. Data protection. That has to be the worst excuse I ever heard. I have a card they they posted through my door. Of course it is me. You think a burglar is going to go to the trouble of ringing up the post office on the off chance that the parcel wasn't something mundane? No.

So now I am in the tricky situation where I can't collect the parcel, can't arrange for it to be collected by anyone else (no one I know lives here), and I can't have it sent elsewhere without telling the sender. But they won't tell me who the sender is.

This has to be entirely the dumbest thing I have ever heard.

According to Royal Mail, the most reliable way to make sure theat this doesn't happen is if I have no job and I am available. ? ok.

You get the idea. I am annoyed, they are stupid, and I still have no idea what it is I am supposed to collect from the post office that is only open for 12.2 minutes a day, and only on the full moon of every 3rd leap nanosecond and only when the sky is green.

tell me about them.........

our office strike if rain falls....stick cards through doors without ringing/knocking.

state on the card "packet" when it is a 2ft by 4ft by 2ft box and you collect it via m/cycle when the car is busted.

and you luck our hours are 7-13 mon to fro and 7-11 saturday...........god i hate them.......
