A frustrated shopper has left a cheeky note for an Australia Post courier after they failed to receive their packages despite being home at the time.
The customer posted an image of the note on the Australia Post Complaints Facebook page on Monday, sparking a heated debate among shoppers.
“Aus Postbezorger: I’m home,” read the note, taped to the front gate of their Brisbane home.
The cheeky note made the claim that Australian postal workers were not trying to deliver, instead leaving cards in letterboxes asking customers to pick up from the post office.

“I tried this by sticking a note to my letterbox and still received a ‘we missed you’ card,” claimed one person.
‘I also do that! I put it over the letterbox slot so they can’t put a card in it! I can’t believe we have to do this,” commented another.
“Good luck,” added a third.
Other Facebook users took the opportunity to criticize the bad practices of some Australia Post deliverers.
“I saw an Auspost driver get out of a van today and drop the item by the front door, and he didn’t even bother to knock,” another claimed.
The note’s original author later revealed it was a success after the package was delivered to their front door by an Australia Post employee.

“He delivered it and left no card,” they wrote in the comments thread accompanied by an image of the postie.
Australia Post has made changes to its delivery policy that avoids ‘unnecessary contact’ due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Under the new policy changes, more signatures are now required for deliveries and ID is verified at a safe distance.
Australia Post told Daily Mail Australia that staff were working harder than ever to ensure parcels were delivered to their homes.
“Our postmen and drivers are instructed to knock and yell three times on the door before leaving a card or dropping a package safely,” it reads.
“We regularly remind our people of our policies and what we expect from them to ensure that our customers receive great service.
“However, sometimes our people leave a card without knocking due to access or security issues – such as a stray dog - and this can happen even when a customer is at home.”
