Watch out for weaselly recruitment agents

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 🙁
