Delivery signed for at 12pm.

I ran to the door with the remote control in my hand as experience tells me if you don't get there fast they leave.

So, opened door, he handed me box. Put box on floor. He handed me the signing thing so handed him the remote control so I could hold and sign signing thing

We said thank you. Shut door. Walked into living room and realised I wa holding signy thing and he has my remote control

I thought he'd realise and come back but it's nearly 9 o'clock when they finish for the day and he hasn't come back?

How do I get my remote control back? I emailed yodel to explain an got a automated reply saying my parcel has been delivered and signed for?

Yes I know that but you've got my remote control, wankers, and I can't change the channel without hassle grin

More to the point how do they know your parcel has been signed for if you have the signy dohdah? He can't have plugged it in to update the database or whatever can he.

Wasn't his dooda rather cumbersome in your hand? Didn't its huge girth give the game away that it wasn't in fact a remote control?

(I wonder if he can change your telly over?)

You know you have to sign for deliveries with a famous person signature? Start practising "Ronald Reagan" right now!

You do realise that you have just proved that Yodel drivers never use their dooda and just put a card through and run like hell.

This is proof that Yodellers only make one delivery a day then go to McDonalds, otherwise he would have noticed, wouldn't he?

He's probably been walking around with a remote control in his pocket for ages and hasn't realised.

Have you had a play with his doodah yet?

K8Middleton Mon 02-Sep-13 21:16:43

I really, really hope he's been handing over your remote to people all afternoon completely unaware it's not the proper signing doodah grin

Course everyone would be too polite to say anything as they make a show of typing their phone number into a Panasonic remote control.

There's no chance you'll get your remote back if Yodel decide to post it back to you!

MimsyBorogroves Mon 02-Sep-13 21:23:54

This has made my day, but, yeah - definitely proves that they don't use their doodahs properly.

So what was in your, um, box?

Have you been playing with his dooda? I'd be pressing all the buttons to see what happens.
