Royal Mail continue to let me down time after time! I constantly receive letters and payments via Royal Mail and some of them are as much as two weeks late! 1st class or 2nd class does not seem to make any difference, its just horrible slow and unreliable service from start to finish! My latest disappointment was a parcel that i posted within the uk, it was sent guaranteed signed for delivery and of course it arrived late! This company then expects you to be happy with a book of 6 stamps as compensation for dishing out constant and appalling service! The sooner this greedy & unreliable company is put out of business the better!
