Canada Post.......

When they’re not on strike or threatening to do so, they actually do a pretty darned good job in my experience.

But, they’ve been pulling this shit for so many years that many people have found alternatives.

A Canada post strike doesn’t cramp my style at all.

I would say that most of the time they do a great job here. The postman knows me, we chat from time to time.
But the parcels guyz (another postman) always changing. Some a friendly and some are shitty.
Like the one that NEVER comes to my house EVER but always said that he missed me even if I was at home all day. Worst, he leaves the little card the AFTER....

A few years ago, we had some renovations done to several rooms, including two bathrooms. The vanity my wife ordered for one of the bathrooms was delivered to another address down the street, but around the bend in our street so we couldn't see. The residents were on vacation somewhere, and didn't return for another few weeks, and ringing their doorbell was as much of an effort at verifying the delivery as the delivery person made. So the box with the vanity remained on their doorstep all that time. When the residents returned, all they had to go on was the address of the shipper, so they contacted them. We ended up getting the vanity a little over a month after it was supposed to arrive. Naturally, this messed up the contractor's scheduling, and significantly delayed completion of the work.

From what I understand, graduate degrees in logic are not required for delivery positions. Sometimes you get lucky, and sometimes not.
