A SPICEMAN TALE

thespicemanthespiceman Member Posts: 6,408 Disability Gamechanger
Hello every one well you have to smile and have at some people who are just so jobsworth.

Have been buying from Amazon and few parcels.

So any way the deliveries are coming thick and fast.

Have no doorbell .

So put large label notices has these created.

So on the door is a large wording disabled deaf and please knock hard.

My amazing stunned so the Post Office. delivery arrives see him and he whizzes off.

Where's my parcel never even knocked or anything just tossed into a out house and a note through the letter box.

Other day stood in front of the door opened it and he literally the delivery guy instead of handing me the parcel left on the bins away he went.

Is this a problem why have a delivery service if they can not be bothered to knock.

More than there jobsworth. One delivery driver banging hard and quipped is that hard enough for you.  As I explained my disability.  As I seen to have to even left notes on the web who I am and still goes on, got more coming later.

Need and like my little things I buy my Music my clothes and some other stuff to heal, inspire and heal. Very disappointing if delivery drivers fail to respond.

Why just patience, tolerance has gone, no one wishes to do a job.

Mystifying.

May be should buy a big bin labelled deliveries here. Bright red with flashing lights.

    Hi @thespiceman, it’s just rude. As I was e postie I know they are not supposed to leave parcels anywhere. If you do ask them to leave it in a secure area the onus is on you if it get stolen. I’d call all delivery people and complain

    Delivery drivers are different to postmen, they get paid such a small amount and usually by the drop...every extra second they spend waiting they're losing money.  I know it seems rude but they don't really have much choice when they need to support their families, the standard of their driving is often also poor as they're in such a hurry all the time.  I'm quite lucky to have a covered (although open) porch so I just have a large print note there asking them to leave things as I'm rarely able to answer the door.  Haven't had anything stolen so far but I would accept it as my responsibility if I did.

    Sorry to hear this @thespiceman could you look into using delivery services that require a signature, such as Hermes? Certain online shops use specific couriers. I'd be happy to help with this if you need :smile:

    Hello   @ruth_scope   Pleased to meet you.

    I am one of the community champions.

    Pleasure to be hopefully supporting you and working with you.

    Please ask me anything happy to help, be supportive.

    Have numerous labels given to me by team members and community members.

    Recipe King always happy to help plus others.  Any food diet, nutritional ask me, got a lot of ideas.

    Welcome to the team hope you enjoy your time here.

    Thank you for kind suggestions.

    Please if I can explain when you order anything usually by carrier. Hermes do notify you got an Email now.  AMAZON send emails and track your packages.

    Others know me sort of. So know my disability.

    As with any service good bad.

    Maybe should put a flag up. I know some you do have sign carriers some do not.

    Please can I thank you for supporting me.

    Hello @OverlyAnxious    Thank you for  reply and advice, guidance.

    Yes I know about the delivery drivers how hard work  they drive and many problems.

    Major stories many getting hurt harmed. Accidents to speedy driving, add to that the amount of money they receive.

    As with any role it is all about the money the wage at the end of the day.

    Understand a lot of the issues. Had thought of getting a box with a notice on to put the parcels in there some ideas or suggestions.

    Had got annoyed as see them coming but still put a card through the door.

    Hope things OK with you please anything I can help with tag me in, you know that.


    Please take care,
