    An unexpected advantage of working in a school

    My wife asked me to order some stuff off Ebay and just as I hit the Comfirm button I realised I hadn't changed the delivery address. Lo and behold, on Friday there was a card from DHL saying they had tried to deliver to my home and would retry on Monday. I phoned the number on the card and a recorded mesage said "To change the delivery address press 4" so I pressed 4, only to be told they weren't allowed to change the delivery address!

    Anyway, there was a mobile number written on the card, so I called it and got a "Hello Mr B. Not a problem, I'll bring it in when I drop my daughter off."

    I have had this with some delivery drivers. Really help full.

    Even had one who rang me up "hello I'm outside your house with this package, are you not in?" I told him I was at work and he asked where that was and popped along and delivered it, ~ 15 min's drive away.
