Are they on strike? Haven't had any post that we should have all week and haven't seen the postwoman walking up the street like we usually do.

Must have been about a week now since we have had post.

Yeah that's like my stuff, with Royal Mail within the UK but just seems to have stopped dead.

Sellers saying they have posted it about 3 weeks ago and it's with in Royal Mail's system somewhere.

Postman's been coming every day to me, Nick. Maybe you are not quite as popular.

Still getting post here. Admittedly not as much as usual but postman is still going around.

Maybe the person doing your round has had to self-isolate or something?

Once got a box of wine for a house 2 villages away. It was the Times wine club so I thought this must be good stuff. Im not proud of the fact that my effort to find the actual recipient wasn’t as thorough as it could have been.

Still here, but I think they consciously slowed down due to social distancing. Genuinely amazed something from Germany got here in six days, given the circumstances!

I work on the post.Letters have dropped down to barely any, which is why you may not be getting any post. Loads of packets though. Lots of postworkers off due to isolating/illness. And there is no one else to cover rounds. So there may be delays at the moment. I know a few places have refused to work due to lack of PPE and social distancing

Very patchy here.

Missing three separate shipments of computer parts from China, been given a refund on the most expensive one and told to keep it for free if it does eventually arrive.

Not received routine bank statements or a very important letter from the DWP regarding my state pension.

Did receive a parcel intended for someone living in the next block but one. You'd think a minimum requirement for being a postman would be the ability to read an address?

You're going to have to print/download that statement then Dutch .
I guess Chinese shipments could be all over the shop for a while longer?

Still delivering here. I've received about 10 letters from my pension in the last week telling me that the plan growth is -11·5%, bills also, nothing nice though
