Mine was junk too!
Hope the ten parcels I'm waiting for arrive...

Indeed, we received very few items today, maybe 1/8th of what should be in the post.

Evidently there's problems at the North Pole. Global warming?

Got some post yesterday, but KNOW there's other that was sent over a week ago that still hasn't reached me.

If someone's severely affected, it shouldn't take more than 10 mins to at least start a formal complaint process that can be escalated by writing to the Royal Mail and attaching this thread:


If you have a complaint about Royal Mail, please contact the company direct:
Royal Mail Customer Service Centre
20 Turner Road
St Rollox Retail and Business Park

Royal Mailís complaints procedure can be found here (

The scheme can only investigate complaints about Royal Mailís licensed products and services. If your complaint is about a non licensed product and you remain dissatisfied with Royal Mailís response, you should seek independent legal advice.

Well I guess JC2 has just arrived from Mars. Nothing happens, nada, nothing, ever.

I always have any on-line purchases delivered to work outside of SE1. It always arrives, untampered and more quickly than you could believe.

Got most of mine on Saturday and more today. I think I now understand, why we get those You were out cards when we are in, as asked a postie... they have separate guys driving around making the signed for and too large for the letterbox items. If they don't get a reply, at least in blocks of flats, they don't leave a card then but give one for the regular postie to deliver with the letters on the day after.

Have gone online to ask for redelivery, even if I have no card from them and that has also worked before when I know they could be holding something for me.

Have had a couple of letter this week but I was expecting at least two magazines last week, and they seem to have gone walkabout.

After alsmost 2 weeks of no post, I've received my regular magazine on time, and got a parcel that was sent out on 3 December, so they're catching up slowly.

Waited a week for a delivery I was tracking on Royal Mail's website. Yorkshire ... then a central office in London ... eventuall Mandela Way. Went round there a couple of times. The guys were very courteous and helpful but said they'd got over 2000 items in a queue. Eventually it turned up, ten days late but a day before the last guy I'd talked to had estimated it would (he was probably being sensible in terms of customer relations)... at least everyone I spoke to was cheerful and polite...
