The lady in the post office asked whether it was urgent - as it might not be delivered until after Monday - well, no - but I thought that first class meant it had a chance of getting to it's destination next day and certainly by Monday ?!

It'll be the strikes

MaryAnnSingleton Fri 27-Jul-07 12:12:22

she didn't mention strikes,which I'd forgotten about...

She just means that they can't guarantee that it will be there within one working day unless you pay out for special delivery.

They have started asking this question at our post office too - just trying to get more people to pay for other forms of delivery, I think!

Was there post this morning ?

AttilaTheMum Fri 27-Jul-07 12:25:06

I had post this morning, but it was all TNT

Depends where you are LIZS

Sorting offices are strike at a different time to postmen. I also think different areas of the country are striking at different times.

I think the aim is to have someone striking at all times over the 2 weeks rather than everyone striking for 2 whole weeks IYSWIM.

I think the aim is a generalised disruption.

YABO - You are being optimistic

Charlottesweb Fri 27-Jul-07 13:50:31

Lately all I've had is shite anyway.
