Royal Mail want to trial leaving big letters with your weird neighbours
You know that bloke who lives next door to you and who only comes out at dusk and carries a toy dog around in a shopping bag? Well he could soon be sniffing your packages if a new plan by the Royal Mail comes to fruition.
They want the rules to be bent so that postmen and postladies can leave items that are too large for a letterbox with neighbours, rather than haul them all the way back to the sorting office leaving you, the poor recipient to arrange a re-delivery.
Royal Mail want to pilot the scheme (which won’t include special delivery items) and say that it is in response to customer demand. Any decision to allow the pilot scheme will be made by postal service regular Postcomm, which has now launched a public consultation. It is seeking responses by 9 September.
What do you all think of that then? Happy for Blokey McBagDog Neighbour to sniff your letters while you’re at work?
