Re: snail Mail

Amazon Ordered and delivered in 2 days. Royal Mail ordered days earlier still waiting 5 days later with no indication of when or if the large first class letter (Ha Ha) will arrive. They have already accepted it and damn well keeping it. Yes I am really annoyed at such a extremely poor service

Facts speak for themselves . No doubt like so many times before will get delivered to the wrong address and neighbours have to do the job for them.

SORRY BUT ROYAL MAIL MUST GO AND THE MORONS WITH THEM

Oh dear Realspeed, you really should calm down. This has happened more than once to you, be patient - especially at a time like this when these workers are doing their very best to get through the back log of orders these past few months when they have been short staffed.

Re: snail Mail

Hi

They were fined earlier this month for late deliveries.

If Amazon can do it why can't Royal Mail? there is no excuse for poor service. Delays like this could loose a vital contract putting more people out of work

When we had our own business the customer came first-second and third before anything else. If not we would have gone under without a trace
We took over with only 350 clients on the books and left with 5500 clients on the books and a very healthy 6 figure turnover. This was down to giving good service each and every time, something Royal Mail are incapable of

There are thousands of people who would love to have the job so give it to them and kick out the dead wood

I hate to think of the number of postmen during the 6 years we have been here, seems to be a different one every 2 months

If it were privatised the costs might become even more extortionate than they are already.


Inevitable, Tabs.

Re: snail Mail

I can't speak about Royal Mail but I think Australia Post is a wonderful service. $1.10 (55p) to send a letter up to 250gms anywhere on the continent? (60c (30p) if you are a pensioner) sounds good value to me. So what if it takes a few days? if it was urgent use the phone or email.

Great service and they make a good profit out of packages too.



PS I was a Royal Mail postman in London SW1 in the early 70s, well paid and I quite enjoyed it as a job.

No complaints from me.
Snap. We see our postie virtually every day except Sunday. She even parks her van outside our communal front door.
