I haven't been following this thread and my story is probably not unusual. DPD email 'sorry we missed you' and taken my parcel to local Homebase for collection. That's not too bad because it's not far away and I can easily call in there when on other errands. I haven't been anywhere, I stayed in waiting for there van between 11.30-12.30.

Mrs was talking to neighbours when DPD van stopped and asked for directions to Mr.G (It's a small village so not that difficult).
Neighbour says "I think you have a parcel for me as well".
"Yes, I do but as I'm  ahead of your scheduled delivery time, I can't deliver it." :facepalm:

Went to collect my parcel this am and the staff in Homebase confirmed my observations were not unusual.

DPD yesterday, loud knocking, did not use bell which has 2 sounders and can be heard all over the house.
I go out of the back door (self-isolating for appointment), DPDroid approaches - "stop" - what? - approaching - "stop, I'm isolating" - approaches - "STOP" - stops about 4" away. Drops parcel, pic of it and my feet, FsO.

e-mail 'how did we do'. Book ring back, explain, driver will be re-educated (I didn't say where I was from or anything else, so might be some random driver or 0.

This isn't the actual delivery drivers fault. Their PDA won't let them scan it. Our DPD driver often has to wait in our goods inwards before he can scan. I think its partially to stop them racing between dropa

Amazon driver who ignored me then turned and said oh not you again when I asked why he had thrown the parcel down in our lobby at work instead of bringing to goods inwards as I've told him repeatedly

Yes there is a BIG pile of parcels but they're for our courier to collect and a big sign on my door saying goods inwards

Since Garmin's own tracking wossname has my item* departing Stanford le Hope at hours 05:39 this morning how is it that yours says it'll take another four days to cover those last twenty-six miles?  Especially as it did Southampton to Stanford le Hope in four fucking hours yesterday, the day before a Bank Holibob weekend?

Be on the lookout for Evri (a possible re-brand of Hermes).

Keep up  https://yacf.co.uk/forum/index.php?topic=83743.msg2707548#msg2707548   - I've already had two issues with the new/renamed outfit - both involving blatant lying by drivers.

Hurrah!  My arj TwatNav is now “Out for delivery” as of ten to six this morning.  From Barking.  Seventeen of your Earth miles from Stanford-le-Hopeless.  I am starting to suspect Emily v2.0 spent Easter on the razz in Amsterdam or Prague and will be in no state to navigate me anywhere when she shows up :-\

“Next day delivery” said Ebuyer, yesterday.

“Your parcel is at our national hub” said Yodel, at half past one this morning.

“Sorry we couldn't deliver to you today. Check back here for updates” said Yodel, just now.

Opposite of most: ordered stuffs so 8 deliveries, earliest today. One arrived yesterday evening, drop-and-ring-and-run type fortunately as I was out from 10 am 'til 2 pm.
For a couple of deliveries I have to prove my age, Driver seeing 75 yo isn't good enough so bus pass it is.

We had a delivery via Evri the other day. Correct address, correct postcode. A name neither of us recognise.
So, MrsC goes onto the Evri website to try to sort out what we are supposed to do.
It would appear that this is a set of circumstances they have not allowed for.

The parcel is still sitting on the windowsill downstairs...

Is it one of those ebay or Amazon scam deliveries I've read about?  - not sure how it works . . .   [If it's not ticking I'd open it and see what's inside  ;D]

DPD @21:25 last night: we delivers ur parcel on teh 16th inst.  Time TBA.

DPD @07:36 this morning: Nikita delivers ur parcel between 09:58 and 10:58 today.

Who’s up at that time on a Saturday?  Not this Unit, that’s who.  Being early can be as much of a PITA as being late, y'know.

Also, Nikita didn’t look anything like this:

on account of being a bloke.  He didn’t even have a gun.
