Thanet Star

How is your post these days?

We here at Thanet Star HQ have been hearing that people have been experiencing problems with their "snail" mail.

Day 144 - Royal Mail
Have you had items returned undelivered?

Have you discovered that the postman failed to even leave a "Sorry We Missed You" card? Or maybe he or she did but failed to even knock or ring your doorbell first? (That's something that really irritates me).

Our Illisia has recently experienced similar difficulties. So far she has complained to Royal Mail on eight separate occasions.

Likewise family members have reported mail that was returned to sender without them ever knowing it had "arrived".

In one case we heard of a lady whose parcel was with a neighbour for almost a month because no card was left to tell her and being new to the area she preferred to keep to herself.

Are these isolated incidents?

Have you had problems lately?
