    soo Cp really drives me up the wall
    whenever i get a package, i always get a card in my mailbox.
    they NEVER EVER attempt to deliver.
    I live in an apartment and usually work afternoons so im home when the mail comes
    .

    according to CP's website, they should only drop a card without attempting delivery if:
    We usually attempt to deliver all items directly to you, but in the following situations we leave a Delivery Notice Card instead:
    If the item is marked as "card for pickup".
    If you receive your mail at a community mailbox where your residence is more than 500 m from the mailbox, and the item does not fit in the parcel compartment.


    NONE OF THESE APPLY.
    graah!
    what makes me even more mad is the card says available for pick up after 1pm tomorrow (tomorrows saturday, which means it wont be there until monday!!!)
    and im going away sunday-thurs so i cant get it until friday!!!!

    *end of rant

    Some places are open on Saturday depending what ur pick up location is.
    I hate when they do that...it happens 99% of the time to me - that is why when I send a parcel I prefer FedEx...CP is useless most times

    I know, this drives me mad too. I have seen where I am sitting in my living room, right by the door, and never hear them knock, just find the card stuck in the door later. I think sometimes they don't even bring the parcel with them, they just stick a card in the door and leave you to it.

    Yup that's CP for you.

    One time I renewed my cellphone contract over the phone and the day the phone was suppose to come, I was at home all day. I was anxious so I kept opening the door lol

    so around 2:30ish I opened the door and the CP delivery person was there writing that stick thing and guess what??!! ... they weren't even holding my box!! so I asked the lady why didn't you ring the door or knock. Her excuse, I did many times but no one answered ... yeahhh riight ... so I asked her why wasn't she holding the package her excuse was i put it back in the truck ... from my door to the end of my driveway is about 30 feet ... so she then said oh, I'll go get your package from the truck since you are home ... *facepalm*

    Same here. It is so annoying.

    I have three big dogs and they stalk the front window, all day every day, waiting for the kids to come home from school. When someone comes near the front of my house, they bark. I have been standing in my front window and watched her come up to my door without the pkg and leave a notice. Aggravates the crap out of me.

    they did the same to me and they just blew it off when i called to complain.

    they DO NOT even try.

    they lie about it and their supervisors back them up.

    Got mine! lol

    So, not CP, but UPS:
    Yesterday we were going out, and saw the UPS truck pull up front. (We live in a basement apartment.) The guy gets out of his truck, and my DD says hi, lol, and he says hi back. I'm waiting for DH to come up the stairs with the stroller, so I'm standing in the driveway, and see the driver put a sticker on the door (the main door) and walk back to the truck. He didn't even have a package in his hands! And didn't knock.
    Our landlord pulled up like 30 secs after, lol. Told him the UPS driver left a sticker..

    They used to do that at our old place, he wouldn't even take the parcels with him, just write up the tickets and put them through with the mail

    I am not so sure about supervisors lying to protect a worker who failed to knock, they usually go out of their way to reprimand us. Sorry though it still sucks.

    it`s a PITA to do.. but call canada post every time this happens.. they make a minor note about the incident.. and if it happens enough times the driver gets ged.. it has in the past worked for me.. every package would show up as a card instead or abandoned at my door.. once i had my package delivered to someone else and they opened the package!

    It seems to be a standard practice of theirs. Happens to me all the time.
