Welsh postmen have admitted for the first time that they wait until people are out before they try delivering oversized and signed-for parcels.
It means that people have to visit the sorting office to collect their parcels.
One postman told WalesOnCraic:
“It’s true. We wait until you are out, even if it’s for a few minutes, to try and deliver your parcel. A lot of the other delivery people do the same. A postman colleague of mine hides behind bushes and waits for people to head out. Only yesterday, I hid behind a car and waited for this old woman to pop out and put her wheelie bin out. As soon as I saw her struggling down the garden path, I nipped up to her front door and popped in a ‘Sorry we’ve missed you’ card. It was great fun.”
But other postmen have denied the claims, saying that it’s all just a load of bollocks.
“If you order shit off the internet, that’s either because you’re a lazy twat or because you don’t work. Either way, you should be at home when your parcel arrives.”
