Postmen in 'not doing their job properly' shocker
It might be one to file under the category of ‘stating the bleeding obvious’ but a survey by the fun-lovin’, deely-boppin’ dudes and dudettes at Which! Magazine has revealed that… (drum roll) …postmen deliver those ‘while you were out’ cards to us WHILE WE’RE ACTUALLY IN!
More than 2,200 members of the Which! Club were asked if a Royal Mail or Parcelforce delivery type had fired one of the cards through their letterboxes while they were in residence and, amazingly, a third said of them said: “Yes! The bastards did!”
Back at the end of 2009, when Royal Mail were voted as Britain’s Worst Company, this heinous and deeply annoying practice was one of the most-repeated grievances that you had against the company – that the laziness of their delivery donkeys forced you into making a unnecessary trip to your local sorting office to collect something that should have been delivered properly in the first place.
Of course sometimes it’s our own fault. The batteries in the doorbell are dead or we’re listening to an old Sparks album at an unfeasibly high volume. But it’s the Royal Mail and the Which! Club members (and indeed all of us) need the Queen to sort this shit out.
Royal Mail have promised “firm action” while the Queen refused to comment when we rang Buckingham Palace.
