    Recorded signed for letter/parcel arrived yesterday? - help! 24th Feb 13 at 8:01 PM
    And I have no idea what it could be. Hope it's something nice

    Did anyone get a parcel/letter sent recorded signed for yesterday?

    Hope it's something nice for you. I do wish postmen would fill the cards in fully. We get them left with just the surname when there are 3 of us that get post here, which of us are supposed to turn up at the office with ID? Or the card says leave at least 3 hours before collecting.....from when? If you're not in when he leaves the card you don't know that do you?

    I did! I won a £50 New Look voucher so it's probably that

    That's very quick delivery for a daily win, very impressed!

    Cheers

    I got a recorded signed for yesterday and it was for a Death Race 3: Inferno DVD. Fingers crossed yours is a bigger win!

    Nice little surprise along with a Kingsmill butter knife I'd forgotten about!

    My postie never fills in the card properly but then he also crosses out the bit about going to the delivery office and just drops it off at the village post office - which is a great thing. So I don't mind.

    Which he hadn't filled in, that was the point I was making. They seem to just fill in the bare minimum.

    How very odd, maybe not all DO's are as easy-going as ours, just the surname would be enough, but then ours is a lickle one.

    Re: the time, that's a bit of an issue. All I can suggest there is point it out to one of the DO's managers, not the person in the calling office, mind you, would prolly just be a mild 'don't do that again', but if it happened enough times and enough complaints were made then something might get done. Failing that you could phone the Cust Servs on their non-geo number or fire a tweet off, might even get some stamps out of it...

    Sorry if I came across as bristly, wasn't intentional. It's just I fill the cards out properly and wouldn't want the relatively adequate at best posties like me tarred with the same brush

    Totally understand, we had a regular postie for ages and I think he spoilt us, then he had the nerve to retire .

    Mind you, after the day I've had, I might retire too

    way I saw it. If a customers card simply said 'smith' then I wasnt sending them away because it was a different smith at the address
