Special delivery sent from business for 9am - critical approval documents for a deadline job - unkempt, unprofessional postie runs away after tossing in a 'while you were out' card - when we sat and watched him. Never rang the buzzer, nothing. IN fact, didn;t even have the envelope with him. This is standard practice for Royal Mail, and I cannot believe someone in that useless UK givernment does do something about it - the internet is floating in complaints about this. Still, they charge and charge, and nobody does anything.
Note to the wise: make a deal with a local merchant, news agent, have your parcels sent there - if the shops open all day, they can't get away with it.
