I was in, and everything. Maybe not in that actual house, but certainly near enough for the dog to hear the courier arrive, but by the time I got to the door, UPSGuy was gone. My clock read 13:04, although UPS tracking says the not-in scan was done at 12:57...

UPS person had already decided you were out before they got out of the van. :(

naaah. would just be making more work for himself, that way. They still have to deliver it, eventually. It's just I want it NOW. :)

hmm, reminds me of the argument I had a couple of days ago with a courier company:

"I DO NOT LIVE AT FLAT 1F1!! IT'S 2F2!!!"

luckily I got the delivery and - hurrah! - I have broadband again.

Still, I am really *really* annoyed about what happened with Rich's package (I'm sure he's showed you by now)

All our stuff goes to neighbours, whoever's in at the time.
Some weeks we'll have to visit three or four different houses, picking stuff up, if the credit card's taken a particularly severe hammering that week.

teflon - binary has yet to reach my part of the country ;)

the worst occasion was when a posty put a birthday package under my outside doormat and left no note to say it had been "delivered". there was a cd inside. I was stepping on the mat for two weeks before I discovered the package, by which point the cd case was cracked to fuck.

Grrr - our postman has a habit of doing the very same, and if it's a second attempt delivery he doesn't even have to leave a card. Infuriating when waiting for an exciting new gadget to arrive or something. :(
