Right! I'm sending myself a tracking device by post.

Why have two packages been put through my letterbox, opened? I looked out the door straight away as I heard them come through the door, and seeing them spill out on the mat, I thought I ask the postman what had happened. No one to be seen, and I then realised it was too late for the postman. Hmmm... After calling the sorting office it seems the items may have been delivered to the wrong address and then opened in error... Yeah both clearly addressed! Since I have had to chase after the postman on a couple of occasions to hand back letters not for my address, and had to redeliver items meant for next door,  several doors down,and  the next street myself. Now I'm wondering about some items that have gone missing recently.

Meanwhile the sorting office will "look into it".... whatever that means.

I thought I'd left all this nonsense behind moving out of a flat that had a confusing address, confusing for the illiterate and innumerate. To be fair, there it wasn't the postman who was a problem, it was the courier companies.

I wouldn't mind so much but this stuff today and the recent lost items weren't for me, it's a little awkward telling friends that have given me cash to order stuff on ebay for them "Sorry it didn't arrive." or "Sorry it arrived but it's been opened. Is it all there?". In some ways the latter of the two seems worse.
