I have just had appallingly bad service at the Walworth Road Post Office
. I took a large letter in to be sent and requested 'recorded 1st class'... ( This is not complicated I thought to myself
) What was in the letter I was asked? ( This was UK not international!) (None of your b. business I thought)
"Important?" he said "Not really" I said. "7.15 pounds" "What?" Is that recorded delivery? "Yes, that is signed for and delivered tomorrow"
If you happen to be reading this, having pulled your head away from the book/manual you were reading throughout the above dialogue, I can inform you that the price for recorded signed for 1st class for this item is 2.34 pounds ( Royal mail website) . I did not ask for a special delivery service (7.15 pounds)but perhaps you already knew this???
So to all SE1ers.... Do you have any examples of really good Post Office Service? Walworth Road
PO is not somewhere I usually go.and not somewhere I will go to in future.. I have nothing but praise for the PO close to Bermondsey Tube where the staff are nothing but polite and efficient even when it gets really busy!
Where are your favourite post offices?
