OK, I'll start it off to give everyone a laugh...  I know they say there's no such thing as a stupid question but I once emailed the RPD with the email title "What's my CPH number?" and the email detail recorded... "My holding number is XX YY ZZZZ!  I didn't get a reply and was getting a bit frazzled as I needed it for something or other so I phoned them... and asked the same question.

In fairness, I think I'd have been much less polite and forgiving if someone had phoned me with such a stupid question!  But in my defence I didn't realise there should have been a zero in front of the middle set of digits!



RtB - as for your courier getting an eyeful...she asked for it if she stuck her head in the bathroom and to some extent it goes with the job!  It's amazing how many people don't hear the door being knocked, or the doorbell going, and yet when the courier goes to deliver around the back etc they're strutting around exercising in their birthday suit or frying sausages without so much as an apron.  I had one chap regularly open the door in his "leo the lie-in" onesie... complete with face paint.  The biscuit goes to a colleague of mine though, who had the resident open the door in full Nazi SS uniform!  The resident decided to try to explain that it was his Jewish girlfriend's fetish not his idea... at which point it just started getting really weird!!!  I think the swastikas on the lamppost outside the house should have been some kind of warning but there really are some odd people out there! 
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.

" frying sausages without so much as an apron."  is that an euphemism for some thing. As for Alison the courier she is quite happy to display her latest and sometimes not so visible tats,not good for the ticker

I used to earn a bit extra by delivering phone books. One house had a sign saying, "Deliveries round the back please." So I wandered round the back to see the lady of the house, knickers round her ankles, sitting on the toilet. She didn't appear to have seen me so I took a couple of steps back, waited until I heard the flush and stepped in view to give her her phone book.

@Rupert the bear , did you ever get to the bottom of this?

I've just had a copy of The Accelerated Learning Handbook delivered - correctly addressed and in Amazon packaging, but it's not something I've ordered!



Any ideas?

Make sure you check your Amazon settings - make sure they are not charging you for Amazon prime or some other rubbish like that!
Amazon is an evil company!

It still does
There was a programme about Amazon on TV a couple of nights ago, giving tips on how to beat them, but it didn't mention any free stuff.

Welcome to the club !  no doubt more to follow  :D 
I dont even have an Amazon account any more, and any payments to Amazon are blocked by the bank  . any ebay and other on line shopping is strictly controlled so that route is covered .
As far as Amazon are concerned they have asked me not to return stuff and just dispose of it as I see fit.

Give it to your local volunteer group.  I've just given my old phone and my Hudl2 to our development Trust team, so that Covid19 patients can speak to their loved ones on facetime or messenger
