almost everyday!! and my point is this, if I PAY EXTRA for ME to sign for the items then I SHOULD sign for them and NOT my neighbour, and what about the items that were left in rubbish bins for me? ANd on one occassion the item got so damaged that i had to throw it away. So if I PAY EXTRA to sign for it I SHOULD sign for it NOT my neighbour NOt anyone else. i understand the poor ole postmen/women havea atought job but if they cant do it then perhaps they should find anouther job, like bin men/women. And the average price to post a letter is what....35p first class, and now they have got higher charges it is stupid, i paid £25 to post a pair of shoes that i sold on e bay. And i got feedback from the buyer saying, the postman/woman left in the garage and it got stolen. So perhaps if the postal service was run by decent people then it would run better but until then i am affraid we are stuck with not only second class post but also second class service. And while i am here, why is it that my street gets our post at 5:00 in the evening is it because the service is incredibly slow and outdated?
