I recently sent out a parcel with the delevery address printed in massive bold letters on half a side of A4 on one side, and in the bottom corner of the other side about an inch high I put my address with 'If Undelivered return to' in bold at the start.
Guess where they delivered it too. Turned up at my house next day, can't fault there speed there though.

Sorry couldn't help but a bit of a laugh at that. A case of 'less haste more speed' i think. Or is it the other way round :?
I'd love to have seen your face when it arrived back :x Hope they resent it free of charge

There is 2 days worth of "work" in a contracted out 3rd party warehouse sat at York, the managers will not allow any over time so the posties can catch up. My local post mistress who's a friend recieved a letter yesterday posted on the 4th October just 10 miles away. She said that they have beeen advised, without further strikes, it could be a further 25 days for the back log to be shifted!! This is not just rumour. Anything posted now will be fine, it's the stuff posted during the strikes thats snarled up still.
