I was expecting a parcel a couple of weeks ago the courier was DPD. The driver didn't bother to come probably because of my rural location he put I wasn't at home into his machine instead. I rang the next morning to say that I was at home they asked for my postcode, checked against the drivers GPS records and admitted he didn't come to my house. I kinda felt sorry for the guy I hope he didn't get into too much trouble.
I'm not sure if the speed limiters will be introduced in Ireland any time soon people driving a few miles over the limits are a good source of revenue. We have a lot of weird arbitrary speed limits here, motorways with 60 kph speed limits, etc that's where the cops go to shoot fish in barrels.

Apropos that, a couple of days ago I was awaiting an Amazon delivery due before 9pm.
I also needed to go out that day but had to sign for the package as there was a knife in it.
Looked at the tracking info and here pops up a Google map, with my location and a green dot, the Amazon van, about half a mile away.
Watched it getting closer and closer.
It was 100 yards away so went downstairs to wait.
He was ages.
When he did arrive I mentioned I had been watching his progress until he was just around the corner.
He said he had taken a while to get from there to here as he had doubled back to the shop up the road
Took a screenshot but not a clue where it is filed
