I received a certificate in the post this morning for an online course I completed in the summer :-) The postman obviously didn't see the MASSIVE "certificate, please do not bend" message across the bottom of the envelope as he basically crumpled it up at one end and shoved it through. There was no attempt to ring the bell or knock on the door. I heard it coming through and assumed that it was a dvd I had bought online, so didn't rush to the door or anything...I'm pretty pissed off as I had to pay extra for the certificate and now its all bent at the top. AIBU to think he could have knocked?

Annoying but I'd say it's the fault of the sender for not putting it in a stiff envelope. If you post something that's letter-sized you have to expect that it's going through a letterbox at some point in its journey to the recipient. I'd complain to the course that it was damaged in transit, imo they should resend with it appropriately package.

I'd have stopped him and said 'Oh yes, wait a minute Mr Postman. Waa-aaa-aaait Mr Postman'.

Yeah I agree with myownprivateidaho, it's a bit of a pain but you can't be too angry with the postman... they do post hundreds of letters every day and they must stop noticing/paying attention to labels and warnings etc after a while. Obviously he's a bit of a plonker but yes, it should really have been packed in a stiff, non-crumply envelope to begin with.

Is it possible it's crumpled as it's come through the door and he hasn't noticed? I doubt he will have done it on purpose.

The same has happened to me today too!! Was it an OU certificate? <nosey>

At least it hadn't been opened and checked for cash/vouchers angry then stuffed into one of those 'oh no, some mysterious mishap befell your post. Again' bags...

My DH used to be a postie, they sort the letters into delivery order then just look at the number on the front rather than name or anything else written on the front unless it is a signature required type. It should have been in a stiff envelope.

highway yes, it was an OU course!
it hasn't crumpled on it's way through, he sort of bent it inwards at the top to fit in the slot..ah well... he's not going to be happy with me over the next few weeks anyway...i've ordered a load of boxsets for xmas prezzies...mwahahahahahahaahaha..ahem.
