I appear to have some sort of cold infection. My muscles aren't weak, I can go out places easily enough, but I have a seriously blocked nose, which I think is affecting my vision sometimes. I also have a stupid cough which is stopping me from getting to sleep. This has gone on for two nights now and it's not showing any signs of clearing up

When vader has sent me all the way out to the ass end of space to wade around a giant sandpit looking for damn droids.

I didn't lose the damn things, why am I looking for them!!?

You know why Vader wears that respirator? .......It's because his cape smells of the emperor's butt.

People who write Xmas instead of Christmas.

That grinds my gears.

Postman allegedly attempted to deliver my Christmas presents from my family this afternoon, but put a card through the door saying I hadn't been in.

Except for the bit where I'd been in all day and didn't hear the buzzer ring at any point during the day. I half wonder if he never bothered bringing the parcel and just filled out the card before leaving the depo.

It's fortunate that the collections office isn't a long walk from my flat, and hopefully the parcel isn't too big, so getting it home tomorrow afternoon won't be a problem. But it's still annoying (and bloody cheeky!).

I can't get clothes I want that fit. Not anywhere!
I want to get myself a red formal shirt. No one does them except Primark or Burton who assume that everyone has a neck like Fred Flintstone. As they are all too big. Same goes for grey. -_-;
Also even then if they do that horrid standard sizes thing, if it's medium it is too short on me. If it's large it's way too big on me. Just urrgh. >_<

OMFG THIS! FFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU!!!


This grind my gears so much it happens to me all the time they just auto post one of those dam red letters though the door without even trying to see if you’re in. The ression this happens a lot across the country is most of the time postal workers don’t have the room or time to deliver all the packages they are allocated to deliver. They just can’t cope with the amount of packages they are given for their rounds in the time allocated. This is because in this day and age we are sending a lot less letter and a lot more packages so the postal works just can’t cope with the loads there accepted to do.

Too much work spread across to throw employees.

Most do deliver the packages they are given but not all. Some postal work opt to just leave some of their allocated packages at the depo and post the red letter instead it seems to happen a lot. So even if you chase them down the road and say Hay I’m in! They may just say “sorry I don’t have your package it’s at the depo” This has happen to me before and damit I was pissed off.

But after watching a panorama special about the royal mail last night I come to understand that postal works really wish they could give a good service to the public but they have too much work they cant possibly do in the time given. It turns out must postal workers can finish their round in time they are allocated so end up missing the last part or there round everyday if not every other day. So if you have ever had your mail delivered in the late afternoon you know why, this is because your normal postal worker could not finishes there round in time so someone later on in the day has to finishes the final stretch for them.
One more fact I will throw at you before I stop my rambling Did you know postal workers are excepted in their contract to work at a brisk pace?, Its about 4mph! Brisk pace MY ASS! That’s close to a jog than walking speed.
4mph walking speed is the pace most army cadets are made to keep up when doing training excises.

They actually got a army instructor to do one postman rout and the army instructor said for most of it he was all most jogging in fact he broke into a jog at the end, and he still did not finish his round in the time allocated. He said “It is unreasonable to expect anyone to work at this pace no matter the fact this poster work was late 40s,and he has to keep that pace every day, 5 days a week. The army instructor said he would find it hard to stick with a job that works him so hard.

So to conclude Yes its dam annoying to get those dam red letters though the door and it should not happen without at less see if you’re in first, but have a though for the poor postal works struggling to keep up with their rounds.

Honestly, yes, I can appreciate that postal workers have a lot more to deal with at this time of year than usual and that they may not be physically able to transport all the parcels they'll need to deliver - I live on a main street and it's only practical for our postman to deliver using a handcart. I'd even forgive it of a standard delivery, although really in that case I'd prefer that the card were honest and said "we couldn't carry your package" instead of pretending that the addressee was "out".

But my parents sent this parcel to me by special delivery, and paid a higher price to ensure that it would be delivered. If they did indeed leave the depo without it and decide they were just going to stick a card through my door - which is the only theory that makes sense - then they've broken the terms of their own postal guarantee there. Which is Not On.

I bought some Japanese style prints (originals) and despite them being shipped via next day, wrapped in a stout box, with fragile stickers the Royal Mail's Parcel Force man managed to put 2x creases through them... bamboo paper creases very badly. I was ticked off big time, the artist who sent them was furious as it was like they had defaced his art. He's good egg and is sending me the prints again (in a very, very stout box).

Trust me dude, I do understand all of that. I know it's a widespread problem, I appreciate that it's an issue with the organisation of the Royal Mail as a company, and it's not something I blame my postie for.

But that doesn't change the fact that they (as a company) have broken their own postal guarantees, it doesn't make it any less irritating, and I'm still going to grump about it until I've gotten my parcel, complained to the Royal Mail about it and found something suitably shiny to take my mind off it.

Gods I hate when that happens!

Once, I was just coming down the stairs when a red slip came through the door without my bell being rung. I took the slip, opened the door and asked the postman for the parcel.

He admitted he hadn't brought it out today.

When I asked why, he told me "it's a weekday, most people aren't in..."

¬_¬
