When ordering an item, type in the second line of the adddress where the parcel can be left ie: please leave in shed. Beware ! this then gives the Postman permission and takes away any recourse of action if lost to some degree.
Rememember. Everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
Never pass up an opportunity to go to the bathroom.
If you woke up breathing, congratulations! You get another chance. And finally, be really nice to your family and friends; you never know
when, You might need them to empty your bedpan.

    Good tip COS, I will definately do that on my next order, I hate it when a package arrives during the day because im at work all day and can't sign for it. I then have a 40 min drive out to the dispatch to collect the package which is a pain in the butt!

    Having tried and tested this a through times I can report a conclusive result, it works, as a company who have refused to leave parcels before have followed the instruction to the letter ;)

    I now have my parcels delivered to work. That way it doesn't get damaged as the delivery driver launches my parcel over the fence!

    I put 'private and confidential FAO Galtizz' on the first line and tell everyone who might sign for it that I am expecting it, but then I do work for a small company - not sure if there would be problems in a bigger company.

    If the parcel is delivered by a carrier they usually have to get a signature so you can always find out who signed for it.
    When life hands you a lemon, make sure you ask for tequilla and salt ;)
