Missed Delivery

Missed a parcel that was delivered to my door step on Friday the 3rd. And due to the UK postal strike, that means I wont be getting any redeliveries anytime soon. Even a message dropped via their site won’t help as I don’t see any signs of the posties on a calm Saturday morning.

I was so expecting them.

On Saturday, I surfed their website and requested a redelivery on Monday. Yet they failed me. They made me walk today, under the hot sun to a near-two-mile suburb PO called Mutley. Gah!

After getting my stuff, I have to make a ‘rewalk’ back home. Total walk-time is 45 minutes. Parcel intact but wrapper torn and tattered on some sides. Luckily, the contents are fine.

After 2 attempts of requesting redeliveries via their website for Saturday and Monday, I received their email on Wednesday; that was 2 days after getting my stuff. And the content says;

I was wondering if the posties webmaster also go on strike?? Don’t they just respond to emails? And don’t they check the inventory before replying as my parcel was already claimed 2 days earlier before this email was released?

Parcelforce no force duh. Assholes.
