    Bloody Couriers

    Just popped home from work to grab something out of the shed, and I notice a parcel on my front doorstep. Quite a large and very unhidden box with Signature rquired written accross it. Obviously they didnt bother about the signature.
    Not to worry though, its only a $6000 Flir camera
    Fuck you Fastways hamilton. Imagine the shit fight I would have on my hands if that had gone walk about.

    That's unacceptable service from probably my least favourite courier company.

    What are you doing with a FLIR camera?

    We use Castle Parcels for work
    Every time I need something picked up to go down the line overnight the useless cnut must know and doesn't show which means I have to drop off at depot on way home

    That is not the question Sako75. The question is "can I be your friend"?

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Had the same problem with courierpost when a scope turned up and was left on doorstep. Contacted their customer support and turns out it was signed "ATL" which means I'd given an authority for the driver to leave signature parcels unsigned for, which I hadn't of course. Driver was spoken to and ATL removed, seems cuzzie was just trying to speed up his round the useless lazy fucker. Contact their national office and complain bro. If it happens again the parcels going walkies!

    It was an on going problem when we had the camera business. Customer would ring up say it's sitting on the porch not signed for or didn't turn up at all and courier would say yes it was signed for. signature was strangely similar to couriers writing though in many cases. I generally recommend nzcouriers despite the price. We do have a good fastways guy at the moment who replaced one of the most inept drivers in existence.

    I cant be buggered with all that walking and stalking crap, so just going to sit on the bush edge with Flir and pick em off at night. All on DOC land of course.

    Alternatively, I may just be trying it out for SAR

    I can be bought though Rushy

    I've often had signature-required parcels signed for by 'box' aka letterbox when the couriers were too lazy to use the driveway.
