What time does your post come generally?

Topic.
What time do you get deliveries from Royal Mail usually? I'm waiting for a delivery (see my Amazon and Royal Mail thread from yesterday) but it hasn't come because the postie hasn't been yet.
If it doesn't come by tomorrow I will be on the phone to RM's complaints department.

Anytime between 8am and 2pm.
Depends on which postie is on.

About 18 months or so ago it was regularly after 2pm but now it tends to arrive between 11 & 12.

Normally 11am to 11:45am here. There are two posties, one who does the light stuff on foot and a rather attractive milfy blonde with a lovely smile who delivers the larger stuff with a colleague by van at around the same time.

Yep that s so true, with our postie in the 70 80's and there was only him allocated to our area
You could time your watch by him even in the thickest of snowfalls that he could get through then give or take 1/2 n Hr other side of his normal time of 6 - 7 am
Nowadays the postie is so random and don't always see them more than a few days / weeks, don't get me started on the times as they are more random than the change of postie

Re: What time does your post come generally?

Yep, I remember as a kid you could be assured the postie would be with you by 7am. I've no idea how they used to do it as like you say TOR there was only one for a big area.
These days there seems to be an army of them and none of them can get to you before 9am lol.
Must be said though, we're lucky as our postie is excellent.

And when something hadn't arrived by 7 you simply awaited the next delivery around 10!

I forgot about the second delivery lol.
Yeah we used to get our second delivery about 1pm but it was very rarely used.

I may be wrong but wasn't the second delivery mainly for 2nd class post?

Re: What time does your post come generally?

Ours now seems to be stabilised somewhere between  11:30 and 13:00  for village postie in his little van and we get a really good service.  Parcelfarce on the other hand is a very different issue,  They frequently never get to the village with the "You were not at home" note posted from the local depot.

Any time between 10am and 4pm meaning if I'm expecting something it's a day waiting in and wasted if it doesn't turn up.

Re: What time does your post come generally?

My postie still ain't been yet and it's 2.30 PM.
Looks like I'll be having words with Amazon again, and Royal Mail.
