No This Is Not A Summons, Sir

Postal service for fugitives, indecisive people and the homeless

A service delivering the post to you wherever you are - no need to agree a place and time. The postie finds you with GPS, mobile phone signal and hunting instincts.

Is it just me, or does anyone else like the idea of ordering a package for same day delivery and then driving like something out of The Italian Job to evade the courier?

This idea is a corollary of My Own Postal Code http://www.halfbake...Own_20Postal_20Code

       Semi - baked in Pynchon's "The Crying of Lot 49."

       Kind of baked with couriers... I once needed a new mobile phone to be delivered, but was away from home for a week, out in the middle of the street all day every day...   

       They sorted it out so the courier fella pulled up to me in the middle of the street, clicked in a newly charged up battery and I was on my way... now THAT is service.

       Re Pynchon, If customers had to carry trash cans around with them then I could see the connection.

       My recollection of the book does not include users of the secret postal service having to carry around trash cans with them, so I don't really get what you mean.
