the thing that gets me is that a private firm will message you and say "your parcel will be delivered between x and y time"
the Post Office says "we will attempt to deliver your parcel today"
I think that the Post Office should remain in public hands, but management really need to get their act together. Our posties are brilliant

Royal Mail has floated on the stock exchange... it's now a private company! 

And I fully agree with both you and Maisie... the frontline staff are heroic, particularly when you see what they're battling with through Christmas (with the additional hazards householders throw at them in the form of trip wires, obstructions, etc at their busiest time) and winter weather when people don't clear and grit the path for them to access the letterbox, or the letterboxes are frozen shut and they're dodging a cold shower from the broken gutter immediately above the letterbox!

The management... least said soonest mended!  The expression that springs to mind though, is "couldn't organise a bun fight in a bakery with the Pillsbury Doughboy's help!"
Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical and expecting more than others think is possible.

Thanks. Been meaning to do something about this for some time. Was hoping for a simple online form but will do the paper form.
