    Thanks for the heads up on the Fox umbrellas. I was going to wait till I hit London at the end of the year but it might be worthwhile buying from them. By any chance did you notice if they had the higher end models in stock.ie the solids.

    Nothing to do with self entitlement, just a simple question around cost v benefit. Apologies if I have offended you as an employer.

    yes our receptionists manage/monitor deliveries inbound & outbound for our office as part of their roles.
    the office has approx 200-250 staff.
    inbound deliveries are still predominately business.
    personal deliveries average about 5-10 per day.
    not a big deal.

    I can tell you first hand that they are cracking down on this.

    At my workplace an email has been sent to "All Staff" from the director making it clear that not one piece of personal mail is to be delivered to the premises.



    They had about 6 umbrellas covering the whole range.
    From the $125 tube models to the $350 solid stick.

    He gave me the stick model to test out and as hard as i leaned on it, the thing didn't bend a millimetre, beautiful craftsmanship.

    Ive got a tube and stick fox. My wife prefers the tube because its lighter but i prefer the stick because the weight means its hardernto get blown around.

    I think there must be two sizes because the tube feels like slightly less coverage.

    Quality is second to none

    Can't wait for a big employer to announce they are letting staff have personal mail delivered to their work as a recruitment tool.

    Just punish your employer with sick leave. I know that’s what I am going to do. After all my 10 day sick leave is included in my salary(meaning they have already deducted that 10 days off my annual salary at the first place). I have been both employee and employer. When I was an employer I treated my 2 staffs they way I wanted to be treated. Anyway times are changing and all the company needs to update their policies to keep up. Or they will fall behind like most of aussie retailers.

    it can get out of hand. In my company people were having their overseas counterparts proxy for them and then have their proxy ship goods via internal mail to other countries, thus avoiding any frieght/customs costs for themselves.

    this resulted i a big crackdown. No issues with small packacge delivery to the office though,

    I've been using this and it's fantastic. My post office is actually open at 7am so that's another option but the parcel locker trial is working out very well.

    The wife worked as a set designer at the ABC and she said they used to favour solid colours as they show up best on TV.

    Also can any one in Adelaide recommend a good city eatery and coffee shop, being sent there for work two days next week.

    And is there any mens wear shops in Adelaide I should pay a visit too?

    DHL/Fedex/UPS won’t deliver in these lockers. And most us retailers use them for their security.
    If my employer ask me if he could use my garage ? My answer will be yes he could as long as I can bang his wife !
