Funny Old World

Post by Gasdiver on Fri Feb 08, 2013 8:04 am

Morning all.
Just had a delivery of mugs this morning (I retired from the hassle of cars and now print mugs), one of the boxes was damaged. So I go to open it to see if some of the mugs are broken. The driver says "You can't do that", basically I have to sign for the delivery first, nothing unusual there, so I sign for it as damaged. At this point the driver gets a bit grumpy, even more so when I open the box and the mugs are fine. There is nothing in his system that allows an additional note to be added to say it was "okay after all".
A little chat reveals that they get reprimanded for "damaged" deliveries. Hence his upset.

It would appear he is in a no win situation.

Next time you see a grumpy driver delivering parcels, spare a thought for them.

It seems it would be easy enough to allow a space for comments.
Funny, it's that way in the "new world", also. :confuzed:
