Parcel Delivery People!!


Most weeks I have one or two parcels delivered....

Most of them come via Royal Mail and manage to get here ok! They don't seem to have a problem finding my front door and knocking on it...

My problem and reason of my rant lies with the the delivery people who come with a van the likes of Parcelforce, Dpd, CityLink, etc....

They are useless and Lazy!!!

I was supposed to have a parcel delivered a prize I'd won....Waited in 2 days for it and ended up getting in touch with the company running the giveaway they gave me a number to get in touch with the delivery company....Turns out the delivery guy had gone to the back garden gate saw it was locked and left a note wedged in the handle of the gate.....Which probably blew away in the wind we've had....All he had to do was come to the front door but Ohh no that would of meant getting wetter as it was raining most of Friday if I remember rightly!!

You see I live in a row of terraced houses with just a front garden and path between us and the people opposite....It would mean the delivery driver would have to park on the road at the side and walk about thirty steps to my front door....Easier for them to try the back gate see it's locked and say no one's in!

It's not the first time it's happened!! I've had parcels threw over the back gate because they didn't want to come to the front and actually kick the back gate until the lock had broke.....He got a mouthful off me! Think I actually scared him as I was waving my arms around like a loon and shouting!....lol

And while I'm on with the rant....On the odd occasion they do make it to the front door I've seen them coming and got up to answer the door opened it to see them getting a 'sorry we missed you card' ready to post through the door without even bothering to knock!! 

Can they not just do the job they are paid to do!!

  1. I have the same. I ordered an item from Amazon, it was delivered by ParcelForce. They chucked it over the gate, it got damaged and wet, had to then complain to Amazon, who dealt with PF. My postie and I have a great relationship, he knows where to leave parcels and stuff and is very sensible. Couriers? Not so great!

  2. I remember when this hit the news recently and Radio 1 got some tweets/facebook comments from delivery guys. One of them said "Don't order things if you aren't going to be home". Which is hilarious really, because that suggests companies that sell us stuff over the internet give us delivery days and times. What a nonce!

  4. I have so many problems with delivery drivers. I have even caught them writing out the card in their van and going to post it through my door without even knocking! I hate the fact they tell you that it will be there between 8am and 6pm meaning you literally cant do anything like hoover or put the washing machine on or even have a shower just in case you miss their every so lightly knocking the door!

  5. I think their jobs must be so miserable that they do these things to spice it up a bit. We've had very similar here...
