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

Nothing at all helpful to add but you have made my night grin

Hahahahaha. Brilliant. What channel is the Tv on? grin

He's probably sat on some hard shoulder somewhere searching his van top to bottom! grin

I hope you called it a signy doodah in the e-mail.

You can do some channels on the TV without the remote sometimes.

grin Oh so funny.

DrDance, sorry to call you out, but I'm convinced you're a hairy bridge dweller. No one in real life has ever seen a Yodel delivery man. <bitter experiences>

Was your delivery exciting enough to make up for channel changing hassle?

thanks that is funny.

so have you started playing with it, what can you find out from it?

Sparklingbrook Mon 02-Sep-13 21:05:43

Dear Yodel,

I seem to have got hold of your delivery man's dooda. Please arrange for this to be rectified asap.

Love DrDance

Yes, you can use a smart phone as a remote control.

Best thread title I've seen for ages grin

I'm place marking as I have no know if this is resolved. Surely he's staring at the remote control wondering how it got there?

Can you not keep pressing buttons till it lets off some sort of bat signal? A goat in lederhosen or something?

Mckayz Mon 02-Sep-13 21:12:07

This is brilliant!!

JollyHappyGiant Mon 02-Sep-13 21:12:46

This is hilarious. Sorry, op, but you've made my night grin

OddSockMonster Mon 02-Sep-13 21:13:52

Yes, that's exactly how I was imagining the e-mail Sparkling grin

coffeeinbed Mon 02-Sep-13 21:14:07

he probably has spare doodas.

DrDance Mon 02-Sep-13 21:15:02

I can't tell you what the delivery was because it is too embarrassing considering the circumstances

He did though have a Hertz van even though all correspondence was from Yodel.

Does anyone know if they are the same company or should I try contacting Hertz as well?
