My postal delivery is the worst , some weeks my prog can arrive from a tuesday to a Friday when it used to be the Saturday previous. Its the same with the Megazine. they never seem to arrive on time together now. I'm in Ayrshire and have contacted the royal mail with no success.
Yep, as I'm sure you've realised I am also Ayrshire, and as we have discussed on other threads the problem is the Kilmarnock sub sorting office by the looks of it.
It is strange, the only thing that comes like clockwork now (magazine wise) is my boys "The Week Junior" - should be here on a Friday, is always here on the Friday, 1st class.
Also The Phoenix, used to be here on the Friday, now it comes on the Monday, 1st class (although maybe they are cost cutting a bit more as I have noticed some of their pre paid printed envelopes carry the 2nd class "stamp").
All these are "proper" Royal Mail as well, not TNT or whatever that is handled by another company first and then passed to the Royal Mail - it's been made clear to me by a couple of postie pals that the RM stuff is handled first then all the other feeder couriers are second fiddle.
But it would appear that when passing through either Glasgow, or more likely Kilmarnock, if you are not an ordinary letter then you are put to the bottom of the heap anyway.
Wish I had bought a share or two at the time and I would make more of a song and dance about it.
Anyway, the prog arrived today, Tuesday again, and I am working from home so I'll be able to fit in a quick look. Unlike when I used to look forward to it coming on the Saturday as I didn't have much on and could enjoy it that little bit more over the weekend.
