As for couriers yeah I'm not surprised you are having issues with them. From my experiance in the last 6 years if you have anything more than 2 steps to your house the lazy fuck can't be bothered to come to the door so will claim you weren't at home and leave a note in your letter box. Because I'm a contractor and as such I'm at home quite a bit I have made many very angry phone calls to Courier Companies saying "I've got a card from your courier saying I wasn't at home. I've been at home all day and my room is right by the front door so I would have heard him knock. Your courier is a fucking liar. I will be at home all day. Send him back and tell him to walk up the fucking stairs and do his god dam job." They tend not to like those phone calls.

You should meet the jackass USPS currier that delivers my mail thursday - saturday. He has:

Thrown my BFA from university in a puddle when it was delivered(clearly labeled)

Delivered my packages to the entirely wrong address on the other side of town

Left my $300 Wacom drawing tablet on my front steps in snow, when we don't use that door an he knows it.

JAMMED a custom stratocaster pickguard in the mailbox despite it not fitting, damaging both the box and the item

Sounds like an A grade cunt frankly. After it became clear he was doing this I'd have installed a cheap shitty security camera so it would catch him doing it then send the company a copy of the fotage with a note saying "Do you want to cover the damages and discipline or fire him or shall I get a Consumer Watchdog Organisation involved".

But then again I'm a vindictive mother fucker when it comes to shit like this. About a month ago I had a truck driver suspended for a few days because he was driving like a druggie on a 3 day bender. I saw it, rang up the company and gave them merry hell for a few days till they did something. Sick of fucktarts who drive vehicles for a job being the laziest and most dangerous drivers on the road.

He's done a few other things pretty similar to what you described (saying no one was home when I was and the doorbell was never rang). just laziness. But I have called companies when their drivers have been driving like assholes! I drive for my job and despite my car not being marked by the company I work for, I don't drive like an asshole as not to piss anyone off and having it get back to my boss. So good on you for calling the douche's employer, I'd have done the same thing, and on two occasions, have as well!

At the end of the day although I am being a prick doing it I'm not doing simply to be a prick. Enough people die on the roads through legitimate accidents without people being lazy to add to it.

Precicely, absolutely no one should be driving that way. Most of those vehicles are huge and more dangerous anyway

When I lived with my parents, I actually watched the postman walk down the drive, push a card through the letterbox and walk away. He didn't ring the bell, knock or anything.
He didn't like it when he walked past the front window I was watching him from and I said
"Would you like to try that again?"

As to Parecelforce. I made them deliver my parcel yesterday. I wasn't in. So they've spent money picking my parcel, planning the route it needed to take, sending a van over from coventry (70miles - hopefully, they didn't have much else to deliver over this way) attempting to deliver it and then thankfully, they've left it at a post office 3 miles away.
So I've got out of paying £12 for it to be delivered when I'm in as I can pick it up on saturday and also hopefully, the logistics involved will have cost them more money than they made.

Today is not good. I feel like Gandalf. I ate a sandwich yesterday and it's turned my bowels into mordor. Full of brimstone and fire, with one guy desperately defending the one ring and shouting "You shall not pass!"
