Bear with me as I rant .I've been having mailing issues for the past couple of weeks but today seems to be my last straw. It all begins with a very slack postman who has no courtesy to ring the doorbell when he has a parcel to deliver.Instead leaves me with one of these with my name spelt wrongly :This has happened time and again and I have left a complaint with Australia Post but I suppose my complaints have simply pass through deaf ears. As I work at home, it is quite impossible for the postie (that whats the postmans are commonly known as here in Ozzie land) to miss me, it's his job to ring the bell,not mine to monitor his arrival. Its such a wild goose chase, he has supposedly done his job and I'm left to make time to make my way to the post office .Today the same thing happened, a card was left to let me know that they had missed me once again. Put simply such a LIE! I was not expecting a parcel but took the card to the post office only to learn that a parcel I had sent out to a customer was sent to me instead. What's the deal with Australia Post, are they employing really slack couldn't be more than bothered staff.Clearly stated on my parcel ,if undelivered please return to .... which any simpleton would understand means that is where the parcel originated from.I sent this parcel last Friday, the post office is a 2 minute walk from my house, it took them 5 days to sent the same parcel back to me , a parcel that's not meant for me in the first place because I'm the sender,my 11 year old cousin would have said "like duh!". Australia Post seriously needs to buck up, they clearly have some slack contractors working on their behalf and as a customer I'm truly disappointed. I hope my mailing issues will be resolved and better handled the next time around.
