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

Thank you for the reports about this thread. We've had a look and we think that we should give this a new home in Classics.

We hope you managed to get your remote control back, DrDance.

Do you think the op has run off with the yodel man.

Ihear, I think it's part of the yodel curse.

Those signing thingys are really portals to another universe. The op in is a parallel universe will all our missing parcels, several yodel delivery men and odd socks.

All this talk of dooda's has got me singing Zippity doo dah day, doo dah, doo dah, my oh my what a wonderful day!!

Hope you get your dooda back soon op.

I told my UPS delivery man this story this morning, and he says his doodah bleeps if he tries to drive away without it.

I had a yodel delivery this morning. Luckily, I managed to accept the delivery without swapping baby DD for a doodah <phew>

Update op?? Pretty please! Haven't laughed this much at a thread in a while grin

This is the funniest thread ever! Please op, did you get your remote back? More importantly did the yodel man get his doodah back or has he been relieved of the van keys and given a P45?

Was laughing about this thread with our postie earlier when I signed for something.
I need to know if he was reunited with his dooda!!

"I told my UPS delivery man this story this morning, and he says his doodah bleeps if he tries to drive away without it."

which is great. only he won't be able to hear it because he'll have driven away without it confused

I've just read this through and want to say two things.
The first is thank the lord I listened to all that advice about pelvic floor exercises because I needed rock hard control and second, WHAT HAPPENED IN THE END???
Where you stuck with the useless dooda DrDance did you get a new remote?
Were is the dooda now?

You can't leave it hanging. Does anyone know?

Offers bribes
and if that fails
or both
