I tell you what i hate as regards Delivery specialists (and it is the height of stupidity nowadays) is that you wait in for a parcel and you get the tracking etc and you wait and wait and all of a sudden you get an email or text saying that the parcel was missed and you werent in. You damn well know you were and they never came to your house.
This literally happened to me yesterday with a DPD driver. What is stupid about it is they obviously have GPS on their vans, so i called them up and said the driver is pulling a fast one, they typed in his van number and of course they see where he was when he sent that message and he was at least 5 miles out from me, not only that they found out that he had cut out a whole section of his round this way.
Now this is your entire job, if you do not want to deliver parcels DONT TAKE THE JOB. It wasnt even as if it was late in the day it was 10:30am and my parcel was due between 10:45-11:00am. They spoke to management at the depot and they come back with saying ‘yes we are aware of some of the staff members doing this especially on fridays because they want to get home for the weekend, we will send the driver back out.’
If you are aware why not heavily fine or sack these lot…in any other job could you get away with cutting entire procedures out or cutting corners why can Yodel drivers etc do this? I guarantee if there was a system in place that the drivers got docked wages at minimum wage for each person they do this to and it was given t the person waiting in for their parcel as compensation if they did it once they would never do it again.
The driver returned a few hours later totally sheepish couldn’t look at me took a photo of the item at the door with me and quickly turned on his heels and trotted off…he was not happy, but neither was i.
These tossers dont seem to get that it is an inconvenience to a lot of people having to wait in for a parcel and it totally pisses me off that you do this and they then have the attitude ‘nah cant be bothered to deliver it today they can wait until tomorrow’ a LOT of people cant do this, dont they understand people have their own lives to deal with, not only that you have paid heavily for that service (even if it is free P&P it is damn well tacked onto the cost of the items i guarantee it) do your friggin job you bunch of pricks.
