    You guys must be really unlucky. Most of the stuff that I buy from Ebuyer (delivered by Yodel) I get sent to work, and I have had a few Saturday deliveries at home, and so far I have not had any issues... Must be certain areas??

    If it was a Yodel guy it would have been from four times further away, over a 12 foot hedge, into the neighbour's garden.

    We had a delivery at 11pm one evening - a rusty, battered white van screeched to a halt, backed up, and parked half on the verge churning up the grass. A little old guy pops out with our package, smiles and hand it over to me without uttering a word and then screeches off into the night. Thanks Amazon for employing crazy sub-contracted people to do your deliveries!

    That is class. Brilliant. No criminal would ever think of looking under that bucket.

    I'm glad I am on paternity leave at the moment. I bought a couple of HDD's from dabs and they are being delivered by Yodel. Just hoping they don't deliver during the school run later today.

    Edit. I just checked the delivery details and it turns out its coming via Royal Mail and cannot be tracked. :-( To be fair to Royal Mail we do tend to get the same driver each day and he has been very good.

    Ordered a new GFX card from Ebuyer, parents not in twice so decide to ring up and set it for me collecting it at the weekend, go through automated phone system all happy. Drive to depot (approx 45min each way) wait 20mins as only 1 man on the desk. Get told it's currently out for delivery! Grr!

    I saw a Yodel van pull up outside my flat. The driver got out, opened the back, grabbed the end of a parcel which was obviously a flat screen TV, pulled it out, bounced it on the ground. To be fair, maybe he didn't see the 'Do Not Drop' lettering as it was only about 3" high in two directions.

    You're serious? I thought everyone knew the term :P

    A Necrobump is like a regular bump (i.e. where a thread gets 'bumped' back to the top of the list due to new activity), only the thread was dead in the first place.
    It's like Necromancy. But with threads.

    SSD = Seriously Slow Delivery !!
