Listen in, listen Ian!

I ordered some books from Amazon last week. The tracking status on the parcel shows it as having been delivered at 11:00:47 AM on Wednesday. I haven't seen it - the flats in my building have a collective area for post. Hmm.

I've had a few parcels delivered to this address previously though, and none has gone missing. Tsk tsk tsk. Perhaps I'll just put a note on the board next to the post in the first instance, asking if anyone's stolenseen it?

Is it Royal Mail? If so, you can see a copy of the signature of who signed for it online.

Nah, Home delivery Network who don't seem to have any option like that on their tracking screen.

You could probably still phone them and ask, since you don't actually have the goods. If you never get the stuff either, I'd complain lots about the fact that they let someone other than the addressee sign for it. (I know lots of other places do this, but I've always thought they shouldn't).

I had a similar issue this week, with something which was supposed to have been delivered on Tuesday. It eventually turned up today.

I have a vague suspicion that someone has been not stealing the post, but hiding it and returning it.

Some years ago I lived in a building with a letterbox shared between ten flats. When some of my post started going astray, I tried the "note on the board" thing. Unfortunately the building was largely populated by cretins, and when I used the word "mail" in the note, it proved too much for one of their minds to cope with; the next day I found the following reply had been added:


I think they were trying to make a joke but it proved too taxing and they gave up before theye started.
