1st class usually is posted, proccessed the next day and delivered the day after that. thats 3 days. Somehow GS usually come up 2 or even next day delivery.

I wouldn't worry till its been a week.

I think it's luck of the draw and some areas are worse than others. Personally I think the post service in my area is excellent.

As an example, I sent an ebay item to the winner. I went to my local post office (not a main branch) at 4:40 in the thursday, the winner had the parcel and had left feedback by 7:45 am, the nex morning......now that ain't too bad in my book.

Try moving to Canada. You would never whine about 3 day service again. If I am lucky, I see a local mailing in 3 - 7 days.... you don't want to know the delay if I'm not lucky!

You think 3 days is bad?
I won a parcel on ebay and we know the bloke i won it off. He posted it the day after i won the item. after 4 days i phoned royal mail and asked if there were delays in the service at that moment. 2 days after that the item arrived at my neighbours house. *curses*

I'm still waiting for a parcel sent over two months ago... I got proof from the sender that it had indeed been sent and contacted the Royal Mail, they said they were looking in to it and would get back to me. blimey. I forgot about that, until this thread reminded me! If buying goods I try to pay the extra for recorded delivery now.

Love that story, Dr Sticky.

It's kinda like the airport question, "Did you pack the bag yourself?"

What are they expecting you to answer?

"No, some Rastafarian all whacked up on Scooby snacks did it for me."

I've been asked:

"Has anyone placed anything in your bag without your knowledge?"

I said:

"How would I know?"

They said:

"That's why we ask..."
