Bored, bored, bored .... Typical, waiting for four deliveries. Two turned up just before half eight this morning. The others are coming by royal mail recorded delivery. Look at the tracking number for one of them and no tracking information is available until AFTER they have been delivered :( Hoping they'll come with the postie some time before 1400!

Don't you just love these kind of days?

We used to live 200m from a main sorting office, they cheeky sods used to fill out the cards at the office then just post them through the door so we could go 'collect' our mail. Postie got a shock one day and his manager also got an ear full, the free stamps did not ease my annoyance!!!

Had a royal mail tracked delivery that was tracked as in Gatwick sorting office for two days and then two hours later showed as delivered, rang them up to say where was it delivered and they said oh that is a scanning error it will be with you later today!
Another one "delivered" the package while I was waiting in for five hours, until I rang and they told me it was outside, doh!

You can buy online from Tesco and collect it at your local store I use this method with Screwfix as I used to get tired of wasting petrol to find out an item was missing so I use click and collect from my local branch but with tlc I wish they got the same system as security warehouse that pins it down to a 1 hour window

I've ordered from TLC online for "next day" delivery before ... only to find out midday the next day that their van was full, they just didn't tell me grrrr.

TLC's van (from Portsmouth) gets to me on Tuesdays and Thursdays. When I order online, I've found that if something's out of stock it can take a couple of working days for them to get it in for delivery. I now never assume delivery until I've received a confirmation e-mail from them. At least they usually let me know that it'll be a PM delivery and, once the van driver gets to know you, he'll leave things where you ask if you're out.

I take it they refund the next day premium if they do not have it in stock must admit I like the Screfix system if it aint in stock they get it to that branch next day and you aint paying for it

Royal Mail are awful around mine, they often put cards through saying I was out when I know full well they never tried to delivery the parcel.

Next day is their "normal" delivery (I usually order sufficient not to pay delivery charge using their local delivery by van option, comes from the local branch (it's only £3.60 for small orders though)).
 
My postman signs for recorded delivery items himself & puts them through the door or round the back, this is to save me having to go & collect from the sorting office
