Do you get excited for deliveries?

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!

  • I also get excited by parcels!
  • What are you on about fool!

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.

Mine has always been next day and on time. Get mine via DPD though

What did you get in your delivery?! I know what you mean it can be pretty satisfying when you get your next batch👌🏻and even more so when you know it’s coming the day after!

Can’t say I am actively looking to get a parcel of something though! It’d be interesting to know why that is for you? I guess it’s fulfilling a sense of gratification?

Now who’s being nosy :wink:

I got me 3 H&S (Chilli [Obvs] Madras and Thai Green Chilly), 2 RTD’s (Banana & Chocolate) a new scoop and a Coffee and Caramel Bar NOM!

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 :laughing:

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 :woman_shrugging:t2::joy:

Release the kid in you, throw away the item and play with the box

a fair amount of the drunken purchases I made, the packaging proved more useful than the product anyway :slight_smile:

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!

One of my favourite books I finished recently when I was a kid was a book all about a boy’s imaginative adventures with just a cardboard box - pirate, spaceship, race car. So much inspiration.

This is one of the best Huel box inventions I’ve seen

No, I hate it. Usually I am not at home and have to get everything I order somewhere at the postal office or from a neighbor. Then transport it. And of course get rid of the packaging.
