A PARENT has told how they are so irritated with their neighbour not collecting their parcel they may just chuck it all together.
The Mumsnet user, who is not named, said it’s “not the first time” the people next door have taken weeks to collect what’s theirs.

They were once left waiting ten days for them to pick up their parcel after kindly taking it in for them.
But despite waiting three weeks for the latest delivery to be collected, the parent said there were no signs of anyone coming to clear the load.
In a post on Mumsnet, the frustrated user wrote: “I have a parcel that I took in for my neighbour as they were out during delivery. This was three weeks ago!
“This isn’t the first time it’s taken them ages to collect their parcel.
“Once before it took them 10 days to collect it and they didn’t even say thank you.”
The disgruntled parent said the delivery driver told them the neighbours to the other side wouldn’t take the parcel because the neighbour never takes theirs.
And they are now considering any means necessary to get rid of the other person’s package.
The parent explained: “I know they’re in because I see them going in and out of their house and their car leaves and returns.
“So either, they haven’t got the memo that I have their parcel, they have forgotten about it, or they just cannot be arsed and are waiting for me to go over with it.”
They added: “They’ve never been very friendly with me as I have tried with them so I’m less inclined to do the latter.
“What would you do with this package and how long do I have to keep it for before I either throw it in the bin (or return it to sender)?”
Users were quick to comment, with many dishing out their suggestions.
One person wrote: “Take it round and put it on their step, take a photo, put a note through the door saying you’ve had it for three weeks, can’t accept responsibility for their parcels and will no longer be accepting parcels on their behalf.
“Then stick to your word.”
Someone else suggested: “Flag one of them down when you see one of them going in and out, give them the parcel and don’t accept anything else for them going forwards.”
Another added: “Throw it on their doorstep and refuse any future deliveries. You would be very unreasonable to dump it.”
