    Of course you're not obliged, tell them no if it doesn't suit you.
    They'll get the message eventually.

  • I wouldn’t mind the odd time, but not regularly where there is a pile..if they are also being delivered by courier the intended recipient will be aware of the parcels eta... they just don’t care as they know you’ll sign.. fûck that, especially in a pandemic...I’m not going to be routinely opening my door to strangers and interacting with them for even a few seconds when I dont have to.

    A neighbor of mine is a prominent journalist who has been working from home...she gets deliveries regularly and since covid I’ve been knocked on by couriers twice, no biggie but if it was twice a week.. nahhh forget it..

    Sounds like they are taking the piss, they in fact are.... next time...tell the courier

    “ sorry I’m not in a position to sign for these anymore, apologies “..

    Up to the recipient to contact them and make sure they are in, in future.




  • Nope I don't think that's OK. I get tonnes of deliveries as I've a small business, the VERY occasional time I won't be home I'll knock into the neighbours and ask would they mind taking it for me. And then when the courier rings, I'll tell them which neighbour to knock into.

    I'd be feckin mortified to go collecting a pile of parcels from the neighbours, if I hadn't even asked them in advance!! Common courtesy like.
