I'm baffled.

I'm in the living room, which is by the front door. I get a note through the door saying the usual 'sorry we missed you' card and open the door just in time to see a van drive off. There was no knock.

The card says a package has been left at number 28. There aren't 28 doors on the road. I knock around and ask a few of the equally baffled neighbours if anything has been left for them.

So I go indoors and ring up to find out, the automated voice-box tells me that my reference code is meaningless and eventually the real person on the other end says the same.

Do drivers just go around posting fake package cards?

I can only assume so. I've had similar things happen to me. I think that they do it when they're running late, or want to knock-off early that day. All they have to do is say 'there was no-one in' and then the package becomes someone else's problem. If they say they left it at a neighbour's house then they have passed on the responsibility again.

It's very annoying when it happens, especially since our 'collection office' is conveniently located in Tibet (that might be a slight exaggeration, but you certainly can't get there without driving).
