Breaking away from just Huel for a second but does anyone else get excited about deliveries? I have a new Huel delivery today and I can’t wait even though I already have everything that’s coming in my package today. It’s not just Huel though, if I am not expecting a parcel I am looking for things to buy just so I can get a parcel.
It’s something that has escalated during lockdown but please tell me I am not alone!
My Huel deliveries come via FedEx, so getting excited about their arrival is basically setting yourself up for consistent disappointment and an empty wallet.
Ironically – during lockdown, by far the most efficient and reliable courier services have been the smaller/domestic services such as Grab, J&T etc. who consistently deliver ahead of schedule – running rings around the big boys like DHL’s domestic service.
yeah FedEx (sadly) handle the international deliveries - when they started the contract they were pretty good - I could reasonably expect delivery to the door within 36 hours of placing the order with little or no taxes and duties. these days it takes 2-3 weeks and fraudulently inflated charges as much as 110% of the purchase price.
I really dont drink that much these days - but alcohol definitely used to be the source of most of my surprise deliveries - drunken e-commerce binges have seen many odd and inexplicable purchases arrive unexpectedly in the past
Yes, always! It could be Huel, or anything else. I just love the buzz of post that’s not a mail shot or admin stuff. I don’t buy for the sake of it, but with a new hobby it’s been extra fun recently while I get bits for it. I also like writing letters (and sending them obvs) because I’m actually ancient on the inside
I think the inner paper wrappings are more fun! Today I had some coffee pod recycling bags delivered. I had assumed they would come in an envelope, but they were in a large open box, in another (sealed) box!
