Damn you post office

They've got my K-5.
They won't give it to me. I asked if they could leave it on my back step, but they are being difficult.
They say I have to sign for it, but I am at work when they are open. Not open weekends.
They've got my K-5 Dammit.

Maybe I can call in sick to work tomorrow.

That is pretty much the way it happens here too. Is it possible they can leave it with a neighbor?

If it is just a registered item or an AAE anyone can sign for it, just call the PO and tell them that a neighbour/friend/local axe murderer whatever will sign it on your behalf. Eparcels can be left without a signature if arranged. Good luck. BTW I used to be a postie and I HATE Aust Post!

Save the sick day until AFTER the camera arrives. Otherwise you've just blown a sick day to watch the batter charge.
