Delivery woes
« on: 03 December 2019, 18:19:46 »

Havenít had a good year so far with deliveries.

Earlier in Spring we posted two parcels to Australia that took three attempts to get there and took over three months.

Last week it took 50 hours for a parcel showed out for delivery to do the 2 and a half hour journey from Seville.

Sent a jigsaw to relatives in Western Australia. The seller neglected to put either Perth or Western Australia on the package just the postcode and suburb.

This week takes the biscuit. My 93 year old dad is a bit under the weather. So we got a supermarket to deliver some ready prepared meals. Instructions clearly said use back door. So yesterday used front door with no reply as he is deaf. In fairness the supermarket rebooked delivery for today  and......the driver did the same thing. No problem though as my dad sat at front door just in case.

Today was his birthday. We sent him a present and were really impressed to find an email early today saying track your parcel here.  Even said the hour slot.  However didnít get updated as later we found the drivers device wasnt working.  So rang the courier to find it had been delivered.

So spent next forty minutes ringing my dad.  Eventually the postman shouted to him, your phone is ringing.    Dad, there is a parcel outside front door. Goes and has a good look. No there isnít. It has been stolen.

Potted version as you can imagine.

No but you never know. A survey today showed that 1 in 20 thought it was ok to be unfaithful!   ;D
