I HAVE just tried to post a letter first class to my son. I am well aware that the cost has gone up again but that is accepted. My concern is the useless system they have for collecting mail.
The box on The Rise is emptied at 4pm each weekday so it went on Friday at 4pm.
I went to post it at 9am on Saturday believing I would be in plenty of time for the Saturday collection. You will never believe that it is emptied at 8am on Saturday. Yes 8am!
So the minions at the post office believe that people are posting letters through the night in order not to miss the am collection.
I would bet that after being emptied on Friday at 4pm there is often not a single item in the box at 8am.
It might be very convenient for the Post Office but it is a hopeless system for the customers who use it.
