Bastard, Bloody, Buggering Post Office has absolutely F-ing RUINED my birthday. I am Very Very Upset.

I am Destroyed. Devastated.

a bit

I've been lying on the sofa watching Harry Potter DVDs and eating my considerable weight in cheese since 9am.

I have an Enormous Loud Barky Ill-mannered Puppy who barks when people approach the front door.

Yet Bastard Postman has still managed to sneak a card through the letterbox saying we weren't in when he/she/it tried to deliver a parcel.

And not just any parcel. MY BIRTHDAY PRESENT PARCEL

I'm working tomorrow so won't even get it until friday.

I am Very Very Upset.

thanks Flowers for your birthday.

slenderman Wed 21-Aug-13 14:37:27

cant you pick it up from the post office?

nemno Wed 21-Aug-13 14:37:33

Happy Birthday cake thanks

How, HOW does this happen? Is it because postman is in a rush and just doesn't want to get the parcel out of the van, ring and wait on the doorstep? Or is afraid of the dog and wants a different postman to do the delivery?

Crap. Complement the cheese with some beer and cookie dough. And have a happy birthday anyway smile

Happy birthday.

Next time the postman comes, set your pup on him.

I've seen our posties do this too, leaving all the parcels in the van and just putting missed cards through the letter box - its so obvious when you've been in all day.

Happy birthday though!

Happy birthday.

Hope there is something nice in the parcel.

Greydog Wed 21-Aug-13 14:46:43

Happy Birthday - ring the sorting office and complain - tell them to get back with that parcel!

DropYourSword Wed 21-Aug-13 14:53:36

Now you get TWO BIRTHDAYS!

It's bad enough having a sodding August birthday, what with all the education disadvantages and everyone going on holiday and never having a party, but to have presents held hostage by the post office does grate on the nerves a bit.

They did this to me before Cerix

I had paid £4.95 for next day delivery on a Friday.

I called the post office and demanded to speak to the manager, explained how much I had paid, that I had sat by the door and still got a red bastard card through the door claiming I wasn't there.

He must have got a bollocking because he drove round and delivered my parcel <smug face>

DfanjoUnchained Wed 21-Aug-13 15:03:06

Happy Birthday btw!

missrlr Wed 21-Aug-13 15:03:19

what usually works for me is popping to the specified post office (which is open til 1900 on a Wed so check your office's times) after say 1800 as by then the evil postman has returned the parcels to the depot and they are awaiting collection by their rightful owners.
Don't forget ID

And Happy Birthday!

Living in a remote rural area as I do, the postman very often just opens my front door and puts the parcel on the hall floor. Even if I'm in!

DfanjoUnchained Wed 21-Aug-13 15:11:23

My sorting office closes at 12pm, rubbish

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 21-Aug-13 15:15:55

Our postie always does this. He is an utter utter cunt! I know damned well that he hasn't knocked!

LadyClariceCannockMonty Wed 21-Aug-13 15:16:49

Oh they are tossers. Complain complain complain.

And happy birthday!

roguepixie Wed 21-Aug-13 15:17:33

I completely agree ... they are all bastard bloody buggering gits. Mine consistently sticks those sodding "you were out" notes through the door (and all over my garden) when we are in.

Here, have some wine, some flowers (Happy Birthday) and lots and lots of cake.

MammaTJ Wed 21-Aug-13 15:26:38

My postie actually knocked my door this morning. He wasn't even my usual one! My usual one puts parcels in the kids playhouse that is in the garden.

Katiebeau Wed 21-Aug-13 15:43:44

I once opened the door and the postman had his hand in the letter box posting the card grin. This was after I had rung the sorting office and made him come back for the same lazy arsed crappy service.

He's not pulled that trick since.

Happy birthday OP thanks

<<stamps feet in unattractive, petulant manner>>

diddl Wed 21-Aug-13 15:53:09

I'd phone & complain if you were in tbh.

Does it need signing for?

Why didn't they leave it somewhere?

Ours leave a card in the postbox to say that they've left it in the garage.

cory Wed 21-Aug-13 16:09:55

Phone, complain. The post office aren't going to know if nobody tells them, that's why some postmen make a habit of it, they never get told off.

WireCat Wed 21-Aug-13 16:13:00

Happy Birthday cake wine flowers

A delivery driver once wandered up my path, posted a sorry you were our card through my door& casually walked away.

I opened the window & shouted at him like a fishwife

He said people weren't in during the day so he didn't knock.
