Personal: Postal Delays

December 20th, 2002

[Parcel with a map]It seems the package I sent by Special Delivery yesterday failed to arrive on time (“we’ll give you your money back if we haven’t attempted to deliver your item by 12 noon”). Between 11am and midday, I was talking to my GESF and then she had to go and do something – but before she went, she confirmed that the parcel hadn’t been delivered nor had a card been put through the door (and she had been in all day). However, she did tell me that the presents I sent her on Saturday finally arrived (6 days after posting).

So, I tootle off to the Royal Mail’s Track And Trace service to see exactly what has happened. What did it say? “A delivery was attempted for your item with reference [PACKAGE NUMBER] in [GESF’S TOWN] before 11:45 on 20/12/02 and we have advised the recipient that the item is now at their local Royal Mail enquiry office.” *shocked*
