I had a parcel delivered to the house recently. I wasn't at home at the time. I arrived home to find a note in the door to say my parcel was in the recycling bin, and sure enough there it was. But my recycling bin is in our back yard and access is either thought the house or a side gate. There is a latch and padlock on our gate. After about 20 mins freaking out about how someone managed to access my back yard I figured out that because we've had storm damage over the winter, the gate and the fence it's attached to can be apparently be prized apart leaving the latch and padlock intact on the gate. But you would actually need to force the gate and fence apart.
In short this delivery guy forced his way into our back yard and it has left me feeling uneasy. Granted my parcel was safe where he left it but I'd rather he had left it with a neighbour or returned it to the depot rather than forcing my pladlocked gate open. Is it worth complaining to the delivery company or am I getting a bit worked over nothing?
BTW we are going to look about getting the gate and associated fencing replaced this weekend.
