    For **** sake.

    I ordered a load of books and PSP games on Monday to hopefully arrive today.

    Got no post today.

    Just been on the website, turns out theres a massive strike with all mail centers. No post will arrive probably from today until monday.

    ****ing greedy *******s.

    We got our post incredibly early today, like before 10am. Usually we get our post around midday, if we get it at all...

    Obviously our post office isn't striking.

    Well, except at the Labour Party Conference or the local Working Men's Club. Striking will make you very popular with those sorts.

    Anyway, hang Postman Pat, that's my answer...

    ... hang on, I just got post ten minutes ago. Either that or the noise was someone posting a turd through my letterbox.

    It is really pissing me off. Not only does our post never arrive on time but we are receiving other people's post. My bank statement should have got here on Monday and I still haven't received it. No doubt that has fallen into the wrong hands :mad:

    It's not national but it's a 2 week thing where different places strike at different times apparently: http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm/c...diaId=51600692

    I have done so on two occasions... and both times they've given me completely different deadlines for when I should have received them. LOL

    Well, that's two days without post now (for some reason, our area seemed to go on strike yesterday morning as well!). Damn you Royal Mail, you staggeringly inept *******s.

    You know, considering there doing this because of pension and pay disputes, and that royal mail soon wont have monopoly on the postal market here, they probably wont have jobs in a year or two anyway.
