- Hermes depot photos in Swindon Advertiser
So sorry purist for not knowing how to post a link, I can’t seem to post photos either, 1000 apologises, please find it in your heart to forgive me, although googling Swindon Advertiser is surely simple enough rather than attacking fellow posters, you must be a real joy to live with, being so savvy and perfect.Posted 1 month ago
Thanks Jeff for the bailout, nice to know at least some people are well adjusted and actually help on here, rather starting unnecessary spats.
Apologises again to anyone else I’ve infuriated.greeny30Member
Almost every post I read has some unpleasant unhelpful tosser having a sly dig, jumping on the slightest mistake or trying to bully someone off the forum, it’s pathetic, there’s also too many people butting in to other posters arguments, leave em to it I say, let a guy defend himself from an unprovoked attack and let’s stick to useful comments and opinions on the actual thread.Posted 1 month ago
Anyone notice thepurist hasn’t even commented on the actual topic, does he just look for victims to take piss out off. As for my opinion on Hermes, I’ve had damaged and lost orders but my chainreaction orders arrive quicker than before with royalmail. Yodel are the worst though.chakapingSubscriber

I think it’s got a bit better than it was not so long ago, possibly because all the bell ends are on the politics threads, but there’s some truth to this still.
It was a reasonably funny gag though.

I worked in a royal mail depot back when I was a student, it wasn’t so different.
Yup me too , parcel force depot in Luton in summer hols, seen packages launched across the entire warehouse, stuff comes down the conveyor fast, thrown into bins by postcode, if it fell behind a bin then it was lost!
Fragile parcels would get deliberately toe punted.

IN the spirit of being nice to each other, just a heads up that you can add links just by copy-pasting the address in. The forum detects it and sorts it for you.
IN reference to the OP, the thing that surprises me most about this stuff is how seldom my stuff is damaged.
EDIT – I expected just a link rather than the picture up there. This is better. Cool.Posted 1 month agothepuristSubscriber
Holy Moley! I’m really sorry if anyone took my first comment badly. Reading it back it doesn’t convey my light-hearted intention at all. @Endomick – I’m far from being savvy and perfect, I dropped it big time there and will gladly say “I’m sorry”. I did in fact go off and google the stuff intending to post the link too, but got sidetracked and by the time I remembered the link had already been posted twice so I didn’t bother posting it again. To the others who took offence, no I don’t go around looking for victims to be high and mighty over or bully off the forum. Far from it. I’ll consider any future posts more carefully.Posted 1 month agokayak23Subscriber
As a multi drop driver it is difficult to find places for a wazz that don’t take too much time out of your round. Not many public toilets about these days.
No excuse at all for going up someone’s passage though. Find a bush or a McDonalds at least somewhere.
I had a glass delivery to me and went to the back of the van to collect it. There was a pop bottle in the racking with some ominous looking yellow fluid in it. Needs must I guess, so long as he wasn’t one of the ones that chuck them out on the verges.
I washed my hands after unloading 😀Posted 1 month agoNorthwindSubscriber
Sounds bad to me. I have posted over 1,000 items with Royal Mail – none lost, none damaged, 2 delayed with I claimed for and got some money back.
I did probably 400 with royal mail before this and they managed about the same rate of lost parcels but the claims process was an absolute pain in the chuff- deliberately slow and awkward.Posted 1 month ago
