Today I received a cardboard box via Royal Mail 48hrs. The box had been torn open, and the end was missing. It was sealed inside a Royal Mail "Sorry" plastic bag.

Amazingly the contents......two VW wiper blades were still inside.

Something is very wrong with Royal Mail right now.

At least you received a box - all I got was a text message saying my parcel had been delivered and signed for by me. CCTV footage suggested otherwise.

Diabolical here in Hampshire. Serious delays and trying to follow their tracking link just shows a sorry we are running late message.

Here in Worcestershire we have had intermittent postal deliveries for over a week and in one period nothing for 3 days. The sorting office has had a covid outbreak but reportedly just two cases. This has led to over 50% of the workforce having to isolate . The question I ask is how can it be that with proper social distancing and covid protocols in place over 50% of the workforce is required to self isolate? I am guessing a lack of vigilance in this respect has caused the problem .

Very good here. Our regular delivery chap is very friendly and does his best. He gets to us around lunch time having started in the next (much bigger) village. He has either got iron bladder control or a favourite hedge.

I have been trying to get a parcel from Spain from December which 1st got held up because of the problems at the docks before Christmas and it got sent back to the supplier in Spain which they credited it back to my account so I ordered it again and it has been sat in a DPD depot in England since the beginning of February because of problems with brexit paperwork and now it looks like it has been sent back to the sender in Spain so I think I will give up after this.
