This week has been one of problems with parcels. Firstly a delivery driver who couldn’t grasp why I was asking how big and what type of parcel he was delivering – he hadn’t brought it into the building – and after asking what company we were every time I said, “yes, that’s us, what type of delivery is it?” he said it was a sheet of plastic so I sent him to the back door of the factory where sheet plastic goes. It turned out to be a small package that he could have carried in the front door in the first place.
Then I get home on Tuesday and find a parcel outside my front door (but inside the enclosed hallway, not in public view). Trouble was there should have been two. Worse still when I checked on Amazon both parcels were shown as being delivered at exactly the same time. I have no way of proving that they weren’t both there at some point before I got home. Thankfully the parcel I did get contained the Christmas presents I’d ordered for family.
I contacted the carrier by email, they mailed back saying they’d investigate at the depot. Today (Saturday) I received the missing parcel through the letterbox where it could have been put on Monday when they’d first tried to deliver it. Lucky I didn’t need it in a hurry.
