Because all those "We value your privacy" (oh the irony!) windows that you just click through and accept, like the vast majority of people, gives web sites carte blanche to collect loads of information about you and your device to enable companies to (a) sell this information to other companies (hmm, like Cambridge Analytica..) and (b) target you with specific advertising.

The young Lady that is my local Hermes driver is actually quite good, but she does seem to be an exception, but when you hear what their working conditions and pay the poor sods endure its hardly surprising they are crap

I dont know what is now, but last year they where making 50p a drop off ...FFS

Royal Mail collected a parcel from me yesterday it was for delivery to Bristol according to the tracker it was delivered today, well worth the 79p for collection :D

I'm a part time Amazon delivery driver and it's a miracle sometimes that people get their stuff on the right day - the delivery app navigation will quite happily send you from No 71 X Street to No 4 X Street and then back to 71A X Street but we muddle on doing the best we can even when there's just a dot on the map where you need to deliver to and no indication of any roads - good job I've got a Landy and roads are a bonus!

Stay well everyone
