The good, the bad and the ugly
Posted 10:44 AM on Thu-28-Jun-2012
A knock on my door this morning was the friendly Fastway Courier man. Yeah, a parcel for me!! But wait, what? Not only do I have to sign for the parcel but their new fangled machine also takes my photo! Oh goodness no! This is my just-crawled-out-of-bed-barely-long-enough-to-make-kids-lunches-not-had-breakfast-haven't-found-the-hairbrush-yet-wearing-daggy-clothes look! Add to that the fact that he is down one step pointing his machine at me with some red light like a bicycle reflector and the resulting photo was less than complimentary (for either chin!).

I wonder if soon we will need to do a retinal scan to claim our parcels ...

So that was the bad and the ugly. And the good - a very gorgeous parcel from the Kidspot Team for my birthday this weekend! Thanks girls!!

I have had others sign my name for me. When my daughter was only a couple of days old I was breastfeeding her when the courier came to the door. I asked my midwife to answer the door and sign for me which she did. I have also had couriers deliver parcels to the wrong address and had the honest neighbours drop it off to me. The photo would also be handy in a workplace where a parcel gets lost and the courier produces a signature no one recognises. Having said that the courier often arrives when I have the just out of bed look.

Happy Birthday Julie. You are now a member of the naughty club as well.

Thanks for the birthday wishes ladies - it WAS party at mine actually! Last night, lots of friends, lots of good food and drink, lots of music, lots of dancing and lots of sillyness! :) It was so much fun and exactly what I wanted. We have brand new neighbours, just moved in yesterday - they must be wondering what in the world they have let themselves in for with a loud party next door the first night! Feet are sore this morning from all the dancing ;)

I thought it was bad enough getting my photo taken for a video rental card! Sheesh! I wasn't trying to buy the store just rent their videos/dvds/games!!!

How terrible, next time I hear the courier van I might have to check in the mirror quickly before I open the door.

Hmm, I wonder if that is legal now requiring to take a photo of you for you to get something that belongs to you, I'm sure there would be something in the privacy law about it????
