A Saturday tale to make you smile. Whether it is true or a bit of poetic licence has been added the thought of the following did make me laugh, especially with all of the online deliveries that people have had during lockdown.

The box where it asks if you are out do you have any other instructions eg leave with neighbours has always been intriguing. Sometimes when you say leave with neighbours it is thrown over the gate. Are these instructions ever read and then you hear tales like this and you realise that some delivery people really do go the extra mile to make sure those details are followed.

In the tale I heard, as a joke, the person ordering had filled in those extra instructions and said “knock three times, shout abracadabra as loud as you can and then turn and run away.” When the delivery was made the lady who was dropping the parcel followed those instructions to the letter but what she didn’t realise was that the actions were filmed by the camera system in the door bell. I wonder how many times this tale has been told both by the person who gave the instructions and also by the person following them. Certainly made me smile!!
