Missed your parcel delivery? It'll be down the juicer
Whenever we mention courier companies and their haphazard delivery methods around these parts, we brace ourselves for a raging tsunami of comments from you lot, slagging practically all of them off.
It’s all “they left my Xbox in a burning skip outside my house” and “my new camera was unusable because the delivery driver fed it to a passing dog and then stapled the ‘sorry we missed you’ info card to its hind leg.”
But where were YOU when you should have been sitting at home, waiting patiently between 8am and 7pm for your goods? You were down the fucking pub weren’t you? Admit it you weasel.
Problems like that will soon be a thing of the past. Now you can booze the day away AND take safe delivery of all the stuff you don’t even remember ordering because you were so pissed when you did it.
That’s thanks to a new scheme devised by pub awareness group Use Your Local – they’ve signed up more than 500 pubs, whose landlords are happy to take delivery of parcels when the householder is out. So you don’t really need to be an all-day pisshead to use the service. But it definitely helps.
