I have been pretty vocal about our postal service recently – yes I got confused about who I was angry with (it was Royal Mail), but it set a tone for the post generally. In the end I got my parcel – Royal Mail did do their best to be helpful – but to be honest it was only because I complained, I still don’t have any confidence in them. The fact that when they found the parcel in the sorting office they sent it out for delivery again didn’t help – why would we be there second time if we were out to work first time!
The Post office or is it Royal Mail (I have no idea), have excelled themselves this time over the Olympics. They said they would paint a post box gold for every Gold medal won by team GB – nice but perhaps a tad cheesy. However the idea of producing a first class stamp for every Gold medal winner is a really nice idea, and it is amazing that they have managed to produce them overnight. Sadly they are a limited run and are only available in 50 post offices – but it is a brilliant idea which has been really well managed.
Well done – I am just not clear who to thank – Royal Mail, Post office or perhaps both?
