she went to the song and dance of of course they did but probably no one was home.
I told her not to bother trying covering for anyone and from behind someone pipes up" we're busy and don't have time to wait for people to come to the door."

It was the parcel truck driver.

Great attitude and service from Canada Post.
On the upside they don't care and it doesn't bother them one bit, on the downside the shipping charges are ridiculous
I'd happily pay 50% less for the kind of service they are happy to provide.

On the other hand the parcel driver that delivers to my condo is always there before 11am knocking on my door and will get a little something for the holiday season.
Wow tragic story. And the post office was probably less then a 5 minute walk from your house?

Id like to have an option with Canada post to stop even having my packages delivered. Just want a phone call that the package is at the local post office and I can just run over and pick it up myself.

Seriously cant understand why anyone complains about their package not being delivered who live in a major city. Theres a post office at every corner of the city. I dont care what anyone says because that IS amazing service. If you get a notice on your door just show up at the post office just before it closes and your package will be there.
