Yesterday, an e-mail from Amazon to expect a delivery.
Postman was late. As leaving, I saw the postman, chased him down the street, to ask had he a parcel for me. He replied no.
I left, leaving a note on the door where the parcel should be left.
In the evening, no parcel had been left where I had advised, no card left, my note still on the door.
On reading my e-mail, I found parcel have been left, but not at all clear where. Delivery tracking
Parcel was handed to resident
I had not given consent for parcel to be left with anyone. And should a card not have been left telling me where it had been left? And my note removed? Who was the resident? The delivery tracking also said the parcel had been delivered to myself. It had not. Or if it had, where was it?
In a separate note, it is claimed parcel was handed to me at 1521.
It most certainly had not been handed to me, as I was not there, I was in Winchester.
That evening, message posted on twitter, e-mail sent, asking where was my parcel? No response.
The next day, ie today, I found a card. It was meaningless.
This evening I put out the bins for collection. I found my parcel dumped behind the rubbish bins. Had I not put out the bins, my parcel would have still been there, and could have been there for weeks. Had I put the bins out at night, I would not have seen the parcel.
As I write, a thunderstorm for the last couple of hours, now a very violent storm with very heavy rain. Heavy rain forecast all through the early hours of the morning until late morning.
Had I not by accident found my parcel, it would by now be a soggy mess.
