Australia Post, I hate you!

At the moment it's really only worth using Express. Well for regional QLD anyway. 3 parcels on the same day, 2 from Brisbane and 1 from Melbourne. The Melbourne one was Express and it arrived in 3 days. Brisbane is 3 hrs and only 1 stop away and they still have't arrived.... I would have Expressed the other 2 but for some reason when you qualify for free post from BikeBug you can't opt for Express. Maybe it's just my location.
I reckon auspost are intentionally slowing regular post items. Srsly it took 5 days to get from M
Melbourne to Sydney. Even express took 2 days. Pretty shit really as they used to do Brisbane to Melbourne in 4 days regular post.

Have they found a new way to fuck up, or is it one of the classics?
Auspost: If you're not home when we deliver the item, are you happy for us to leave it somewhere safe

Me: yes

Auspost: Hey, we're delivering your item today, to authorise us to leave it on your doorstep if no one is home, reply with "Y"

Me: Y

Auspost: sorry we missed you today, your parcel has been redirected to the post office where you can pick it up

I bought a couple of parts from online shop, probably weighing less than 2kg. AustPost said it would be delivered from 9am till 12pm, I WFH so no problem. Got a message at 1pm saying "undeliverable" FFS. Assholes could not be bothered bringing parcel to the front door. I had to take 30min collecting from Post Shop. Not happy Jan.

If you have a regular driver, bribe the fuck out of them with food and drinks. Challenge is so often it’s 5 or more various subbies that are always being turned over.

A mates house has a North American wet room at the front entrance. Basically a 3sq meter room for storing shoes and shit. Inner door locked, outer door not.

He places a couple of beers and whatever sweet has been baked by the kids for his driver whenever something is arriving. Never carded, driver sends him an sms when somethings been delivered, locks the door on the way out.

I used to have the best driver, knew him by name, always dropped stuff off and knew where to stash things when we weren't home... had a solid 5 years of no issues, when shit hit the fan through covid we started getting random drivers and random deliveries, stuff would say it had been delivered and randomly turn up within the next 3-5 days, or parcels would not turn up, no tracking info, no cards, go to the post office and its been sitting there for yonks....or sometimes turn up home to a parcel in the middle of the front deck in full view from the street with hundreds of dollars of stuff in it when it clearly it had to be signed for... cant win.

I guess I had better join the queue here. Had a package sent from Oregon, USA. Arrived in Sydney in 4 days. Since then....

No way to track it with Australia Post. I have put it into the "forget it" bin. It will be a nice surprise when it turns up.
Package turned up last Friday. I had walked up to the road to get the bins and saw something sticking out of the mail box. My package. I reckon I was back in the house 5 minutes when I received an Aust Post email with a "How are we doing" survey. Unbelievable. Trashed it as I did not want to be arrested for threatening behavior.o

Looks like I'm never going to get these wheels built. First lot of spokes from Find Sports were never shipped so getting a refund. Order new spokes with express shipping from Dirt Works who are great and get them out by COB, thanks @Ponchoatdirtworks. Seems like Aus posts geography is a bit off and now my second lots of spokes are doing an East Coast tour, expect to see dates for shows on the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Townsville soon.

See here is another great moment of being the odd one out. I ordered a new kitchen knife and it arrived in 5 days, including the weekend.

Spokes can't do stand-up they have no support base.
