Just heard a good suggestion that all Amazon drivers should be trained to administer the Covid jab, then everyone in the country would get it within 2-3 working days except for Amazon Prime customers who would receive it within 24 hours! ;-)

You stand once side of the fence, they stand the other and throw a vaccine dart at you.

Can't say that the idea of using Amazon appeals.

On Friday it was raining, door bell went, got to the door in seconds to find a parcel on the step and no sign of the deliverer.

Short time later had an update email saying "Parcel handed to resident".

Oh Yes !!

Yesterday , door bell went, parcel on step, took it in but only looked at it later to find it addressed to No. 20. Took it over there to find they had our one addressed to No. 5.

I had a parcel delivered by Hermes last week. The driver left it in the porch (as usual), rang the bell and went.

By the time I got back upstairs I had an email saying the parcel had been delivered and left in porch. This was accompanied by a photo of the parcel inside the porch!!

It was recognisable and would provide excellent proof in any possible dispute.

My OH told me most of the joke yesterday, I thought it quite amusing. Obviously someone else didn’t.

Are there Amazon drivers on 'Genes'??


AnninGlos Report 10 Jan 2021 17:14

I have seen this on Facebook, nobody complained. Strange bored people on here sometimes. Things are bad enough without losing our sense of humour.

How did it go ?
Enlist Amazon drivers to give the jabs, Prime members got theirs in 24 hrs everybody else had to wait.
In the same vein
enlist Hermes drivers members get the package dumped in the porch everybody else has to catch the parcel sailing through the air.

Somewhat IV form but surely not referable.
My cousin's daughter is m. to a consulant in Hampshire. He has some really black humour which is doing its rounds with the NHS - def not GR compliont though.

It appears the RR'r doesn't believe we're entitled to a bit of humour.
Shame on them. :-P :-P :-P

Just saw that my post has been R/R - I'm very sorry if I've offended anyone ( tho can't see why ) as it was supposed to be a bit of gentle humour on what is of course a very serious topic. :-(


LaGooner Report 11 Jan 2021 11:20

Not offensive at all. If we can't laugh at the situation we would surely cry. Some people on here don't have any sense of humour at all and twist humurous posts on to serious irrelevent clap trap. :-D :-D :-D


AnninGlos Report 11 Jan 2021 11:55

Don't worry Sue, this will be somebody who reads and doesn't post I think. We are all aware of the severity of the virus we don't need to have it thrust down our throats non stop. We need humour to offset all the gloom and doom. :-)


nameslessone Report 11 Jan 2021 12:30

What LaGooner and Ann said.


JoyLouise Report 11 Jan 2021 13:04

I wouldn't dwell on it Susie. I've had worse clips sent to me by my siblings - we are all known for our 'black' humour! It's known as a coping mechanism!

Someone may have led a very sheltered life! :-D

The rrer needs to go on lockdown from GR till they
get a sense of humour.


nameslessone Report 11 Jan 2021 13:44

That’s forever then. ;-)


'Emma' Report 11 Jan 2021 13:46

One can but hope nameslessone. :-D

I'll second that :-D :-D :-D
