So what the frick do I do with it then? :mad: :tut:

The idle bee-hitch who used to live at our house (we moved in June 2010) didn't change her address details on her car. So last year I passed on the envelope via her 'partner' who works at the hospital when her tax was due for renewal, presumably October.

Now a couple of pointers here

1) I am not a huge fan of the guy who used to live at our house. He was renting and did not look after the place. I gave him details of my phone number etc and passed post that they had 'forgotten' to redirect (because he was too tight to pay for postal redirection :rant:) even though I had to go out of my way to do so. When a particularly important item turned up I sent him a text, to which he replied "Who are you" (I had signed it off with Keith @ No2 - the house number -and he already had my number. :rolleyes:)

2) When we were in a position to exchange he "thought he might want to buy the house" but was having trouble "selling his Chalet in Switzerland" and disappeared off on holiday when we trying to re-view the property and turned his 'phone off. :mad: We couldn't go to view until they got the maid in as he thought his partner had 'left her knickers on floor in their rush to go on holiday' :vomit:

3) He is an incredibly 'up himself' arse

So, guess what has turned up today?

Yes, his partners car tax renewal. It says not to return to the DVLA. I have 'lost' his phone number - Ooops :eek: and I really can't be arsed to stop off at the Hospital on my way past it go out of my way to drop his post off again.

Whilst the envelope says it is an offence to not notify a change of address it does not provide a helpful telephone number or web page where you might grass up such an idle so-and-so contact them to advise they may wish to try a different address.

So, suggestions my fellow, compassionate, forgiving and sensitive Alfisti. What should I do?

Write "RTS, not known at this address" on the envelope and chuck it back in the post box.

Throw it in the bin and don't give it a second thought.

and the thread title is...:rolleyes: :p

Burn the hospital down.... or is that too drastic :confused:
Possibly

+1 :thumbs:

Edit: If you want to be really evil, hand it in at the police station :D
That's more like it. :thumbs:

use it as firewood, not your problem at all.
I do have a log burner....

I wish I had your problems Keith ;)
A solution! Your wish is my command :thumbs:

Do nothing, do not return to sender as instructed, do not bin/distroy it as you'll be held responsable, do not accept any knowledge of it...


...ah too late as you have given too many details on an open forum!


Just take it to the police and et them deal with it, no longer your probem

Agree with the above - really not your problem, especially as you've made such an effort already and it's not been gratefully received. Just sack it off! (No pun intended...)

do not bin/distroy it as you'll be held responsable
We get loads of post for previous tenants in our flat. The landlord and managing agent aren't interested in anything that isn't for them and we don't have any forwarding addresses - so it just goes in the bin.

Should I be making more of an effort with it? :confused:

I'm under the impression that the police have outsourced this all to the DVLA now.

I think there was even an item in the local rag where the police said 'Don't call us about untaxed cars, the DVLA now deal with that.'

I've also seen a camera on a tripod in a layby with a white estate car marked DVLA.

Bin it, if you get post that is not addressed to you, you legally two choices, return to the post office via RTS process or bin it. You aren't allowed to open it, but binning it is fine.

I know the title says 'don't return to sender' - but why not? Does the envelope actually say that?

I reckon I'd still do so anyway.

I'd bin it if I'd already passed on other mail and months had past - I had similar with the previous owner of our house for over a year including stuff from his bank addressed to his business here so I opened it and called the bank. After that I binned it all and couldn't give a stuff.

Despite the title I'd still RTS this with a big "not at this address" on it and let the dvla deal with their own junk mail

If it's DVLA stuff bin it.

If, on the other hand, you receive anything more 'interesting'... open it and do tell all.
