On a lot of occassions (maybe a majority) the Apost guy will see no car in the driveway and not even bother driving up to knock on the door to see if anyone is in, leaving a delivery slip in the postbox instead. Lazy f**kers. So now we have to make the trip to the post office and queue up to get the parcel.
I used to have the same problem where I lived before. They used to turn up with the card already written out and not even attempt to find out if anyone was home, just put the card in the mailbox while driving past!

Oh you'll learn one day. Parts of Brisbane have appalling mail services and appalling post office staff I worked for Aus Post here for three months when I first arrived and some of the practices and attitudes turned my hair grey.

Yep I know. I was just winking. It'll be the same everywhere. Had some and good and bad wherever we've lived. At least it does arrive somehow.
