they keep leaving courier parcels IN MY GARAGE!, leaning against the car. not in the letter box. We live in Wellington - so we don't use the car very often. A nintendo wii was there for a week before we noticed it. - we were lucky it didn't rain that week.

Were you not expecting a Nintendo Wii, and didn't miss it for a full week?

Couriers are like that. One was meant to drop off gear before Christmas. Instead, I got it a month later, mid January. Apparently they couldn't find the street I live on, but couldn't be arsed to tell anyone that, or return the goods to the sender.

Last time I had something delivered, they didn't bother ringing the doorbell so someone in the house could get it, and instead delivered it to some random chemist.

Rang to get the package delivered, and was quizzed "am I in a rural area" etc. Took a bit but they finally arranged for redelivery. (I'm not rural so was the least that could be done lol)

Couriers are a weird bunch.

Don't blame it on them, courier training doesn't extend beyond tailgating, using hazard lights instead of indicators, and parking on the footpath or broken yellow lines.

Perhaps you could arrange for them to leave similar parcels in all our garages? :-)

There is a stupid courier who parks right outside my workplace every day and his security alarm goes off *every* time he leaves his vehicle unattended for more than 30 seconds. I'm on the first floor of the building facing out towards the road so it drives me insane. It's a pity he leaves the engine running because I would love to see the look on his face if he were to come back to a flat battery.

The wii belongs to the flatmate, but the TV belongs to me.. so we're both happily gesticulating with white wands. We were expecting this parcel for months.
