Our postman is great. I think you're getting parcel post mixed up with letters and packages - they're not the same people you know.

If your expecting a package why not be home to receive it?
If not possible due to work which is understandable.
Leave a note for the postie to leave it with a neighbour.
Or arrange for it to be delivered to another address.
If your buying valuable stuff or the packages are in eye-site to passers by surely you would want to consider one of the above suggestions?
Im sorry but the greater percentage of people who are expecting a package make sure they have an arrangement with someone to make sure the package is received and safe.

The service provided by the Post Office has deteriorated since second delivery was abolished a few years ago (and more recently by the abolition of the Sunday collection).
Notwithstanding, our postman always provides a great service (thanks Brian).

Jimbo...so you've expecting your package to be delivered,it doesn't arrive,so you wait the next day....it doesn't arrive,the postman can deliver anytime between 8am and 12:30 pm,I'm not waiting around all day for him to maybe deliver something! Standard practice if we are out,is for the postie to take it back to the sorting office if none of our neighbours are in!
Sadly,having the same postman everyday is a thing of the past,so service has become very inconsistent!

Organise it for it to be delievered somewhere else, isn't to difficult.
I get mine delievered to the mother in law's, at least she has one use!

What annoys me is the postman/woman being blamed for the service - the decisions are made by top management whose only real interest is getting the service privatised so they can become millionaires.

jimbo have you not heard of ebay sellers will NOT deliver the item to another address as they are not covered by insurance.. and some mail order companies will only deliver to card address to prevent fraud...
and leaving a note just adds to the fact saying im not in please break in you may as well leave a key under the mat.. i respect the postie its not their fault
did anyone see panorama last night filmed at gatwick and burgess hill
Fact is rounds too long so stuff gets delivered on quieter days
had parcels on sunday thumbs up to the person paying the overtime
