    What Time of Day Do You Receive Your Post?
    In years long gone, here in the UK, first class post use to be delivered around 8.30am and second class post use to be delivered around 12.30pm. Over the years as the Post Office has undergone many changes, delivery times have also changed.

    We now have only one delivery per day, and the times can vary considerably. Late morning is not unusual, sometimes the post arrives mid and/or late afternoon, sometimes it arrives early evening. Yesterday evening, it was delivered at 8.15pm, a new record, the old record use to be 7.30pm.

    I would be very interested to know at what times, during the day, forum members receive their post.

    Yes, those's were the days - Scottish smoked salmon with scrambled eggs and the morning post. The post was not edible - just to be clear.

    It is a wonderful image and quite traditional I would image, to have your post delivered by the man on a bicycle. But, not here in London, it is far too dangerous.

  12. Here in France, its bicycle, moped for the houses slightly further apart, and van for isolated properties. Business post is delivered separately by van. An awful lot of companies use post boxes in the local post office. I lived in Lille for a couple of years and even there it was man or woman on a bicycle.

    The Royal Mail postal delivery times continue to fluctuate, all the more reason to migrate across to email, far more reliable and more instant. However, a certain something will be lost if and when this happens.

    I live in rather large city so the distances are very short, it's the weight that's slows the mailman down. Everyone has his assigned area, first thing in the morning he picks up the mail for it and goes on his route. I don't think it's possible to give a precise time he reaches my house, it depends on how much mail he had for people earlier on his route. Most likely he shows up at the office several times because I don't think it would be humanly possible to pick up everything in one go. I imagine that when there is particular amassment, the route gets changed to optimize delivery. Usually, he's around 10, but as early as 9 and as late as 13 happens.
    The equivalent of second class would be one without "priority" racket, it gets delivered with the next day mail.

    The post arrived unusally early this morning at 9.30am, normally it is delivered any time between late morning and early and/or mid evening, unable to call it first class post or even second class post, but just post. Perhaps I should be grateful it is delivered at all.

    I had to have a chat with the postman on Saturday morning, we have been getting other neighbours post, and also post from further afield. The service is not what it use it be. It is no longer first and second class post, but last class post or wrong post.

    Regards

    No post today, just a great deal of junk mail, to be recycled. Brings in good money for the Postal Service, no doubt.
