Personally I find them hit and miss at best, as safeguard everything I post these days is always "signed for".

Bet the solicitors won't allow you to collect their correspondence as it'll mean they won't be able to charge you exorbitant postage fees :frown

Sadly tho there's not much of an alternative to RM especially regarding standard mail items :thumbsup

Agreed - the sooner it's sold off an dragged into the 21st (or even the 20th!) century the better.

I went to the assessment as a temporary postie many year ago when between jobs (aka unemployed). We had 45 minutes to answer about 20 multi-choice questions - I'm no rocket scientist and finished it inside 5.....the bloke next to me put his hand up around that time, the invigilator came over and he said 'what do I put here?' and she replied 'your name..........'

Nuff said

Condolences on the loss of your mum.

Agree that RM are crap, 2 weeks before christmas I sent a 60 day free trial for lovefilm to Skye, the envelope arrived last week, wrapped in plastic, with sorry for the damage, the christmas card and gift card were both missing and the envelope had obviously been opened.
