The Royal Mail move to ask people if they mind having parcels delivered to their neighbours is the latest effort to solve a thorny issue. How can people conveniently get parcels delivered when most are at work all day?

It's an experience almost all of us seem to share.

Sounds great to use neighbours unless you find yourself on one side to a Nigerian family and the other a family of Lithuanian refugees.

if you miss a delivery and you get a note....ring them and arrange an alternative time.
When they arrive..pretend to be out!

that'll teach them...set of qunts.

Sometimes these delivery people dont even bother ringing your bell they just leave that stupid note!

What gets me is the tons of crap that falls through my letterbox. Hundreds of letters, flyers, mailshots, offers etc. I've started using their return, pre-paid envelopes by shitting in them and scribbling on it.... you send me some of your shit, here's some of mine.

Give it a try, works a treat....Reader's Digest stopped immediately.

I wouldn't mind it being delivered to a neighbour but it would be nice if they left a card telling you with who they left it.

Can't you pick up your parcels at the Post Office?

Another solution is to dig a large hole on the path leading to your door. Camouflage it with grass and twigs and when postie tries to leave a sorry we missed you card.... BINGO!
