wea·sel·ly (adj.)
Resembling or suggestive of a weasel.

Yesterday, Parcelforce called me at work to say they tried to deliver a package for me the day before, but couldn’t because I wasn’t around to sign for it.

I wasn’t expecting anything, but I like getting parcels, and thought maybe it was some long-forgotten internet purchase finally shipped. They wanted to arrange redelivery that afternoon, and asked for a couple of names of people who could sign for it just in case I was out (it was around 11am and I knew I would be stepping out briefly for lunch).

But twenty four hours later nothing has arrived. I think it was actually a recruitment agent, and the colleauges I gave as co-signatures will be getting some annoying calls soon :(

    Most parcel companies (including ParcelForce) will allow you to collect from their depot if you are not able to arrange an alternate delivery time. If they aren’t for real, asking for that will weed them out ;)
