    The post office really is run by morons.
    They wont care about all them stored ones either,their main priority will be the new stuff coming in.

    I posted a quite large size parcel 1st class last week monday, and it arrived on Wednesday.
    And an item that was sent to me from Hong Kong which I won ebay took 2 weeks, which arrived last week.

    I ordered a set of TaylorMade golf clubs from the US on a Tuesday and had them by Thursday mid morning, the power of privatisation! Well done UPS.
    I also ordered a camera and DHL delivered that from the US in 2 days to my doorstep. You'd be lucky for a letter to be delivered that quick. Bring on the de-regulation I say. If they don't want to work then they can all **** off down the social, the ingrates.

    While I don't think the the Post Office is by any means perfect ,I do think they take some stick for things that are not necessarily their problem.

    People blame the PO for losing letters. I have had this three times in the last year. All three 'lost' letters were from the same person who ensures me the cheques was posted. Coincidence? I think not.

    I have also had several late payments recently all blamed on the PO strikes. It just seems very odd that the majority arive with little delay but some are very delayed.

    I suspect that many people quickly blame the PO for their own lack of commitment to putting the items in the post.

    Don't get me wrong, as I say, the PO are not great at time and we recently had big problems with a dishonest postman in my area but on the whole I think that an item I put in the post by 5:15pm today can be with the recipient by tomorrow morning, all for the cost of a 1st class stamp. I still think that is a bargain.

    Must admit though, if I'd payed for special delivery before 1PM and it didn't turn up until 3:50pm I'd be a bit peed.

    Do these sellers not supply you with the reference number to track your item?

    When I sell something on the bay and list them as recorded delivery, I always email them a message on the day of posting with the reference number so they can check it up for themselves on the PO site.
