Just wondering if there was a problem at the sorting office again: I'm on Burgoyne and I've got at least four items that should have arrived last week/the week before last and are still awol. Anybody experiencing the same or - as I've long suspected - does the Royal Mail really have something personal against me?
My sister lives in the States and on 13th October posted four birthday cards, (from her, her son and his two sons) at the same time, on the same day in the same post office, to arrive here for me before this Sunday. The first one arrived on the 19th. The second on the 25th and the last two on the 26th.
Why so spaced apart? No doubt the USPS will blame our postal service whilst they will blame the USA.
I spoke with the postman today. They have 14 members of staff on long term sick. Head office are refusing overtime or hiring agency staff. He said post is piling high with no end in sight and its chaos.
OK for me, A parcel posted in Edinburgh borders at 2.00pm yesterday was delivered to me at 11.00 a.m today. That's pretty good, I reckon.
Well done Tim!
Clearly the stuff at the top of the pile is being dealt with first....
Might it be dependent on whether or not the parcel was posted via a premium royal mail sevice or not. I've waited over 10 days for a parcel sent via Royal Mails cheapest option (still waiting..) whilst today I received one within 24 hours, paid for via their guaranteed 24 hour delivery sevice.
So the 2 parcels that I had missing have just been delivered - 3 weeks later. I’ve also seen some poor postman dragging a huge sack and crates of parcels up and down the street so it’s looking like things are starting to come through. Hopefully the same for the rest of you
Yes, two just arrived here... 3 weeks late.
do you mind me asking which road you live on, please?
I've just got one of the two-week-old ones! Maybe the other will arrive tomorrow... Or in another week!
Well, I'm still waiting for two things posted a fortnight ago today (as well as two more things posted a week ago). Perhaps they're solving this problem on a road-by-road basis
