Today, my doorbell rang while I was still in bed. I leapt out and immediately got a severe cramp in one leg, then, staggering around trying to throw some clothes on, I scraped the other leg badly enough to draw blood. When I got to the door there was nobody there, just a parcel on the doorstep. FML

No, people probably *WON'T* wait. I'm from Canada, and here, most postal workers always seem to be in a ridiculous hurry. Most of the time they won't even bother knocking, they'll just leave a "missed delivery notice" slip and move on. I've seen them do this several times, and I've even opened the door when one was trying to leave the slip, and they got all pissed off and stomped back to re-scan the parcel for delivery. Even when they DO knock, they wait a maximum of ten seconds before taking off and/or leaving the slip for you to find. It's obnoxious and frustrating to say the least.

Though I don't know about the U.K., it might be similar.

#10: People wait a minute or so where I live. I'd assume it's earlier in the morning if OP is still in bed, so people should wait. I hope I didn't accidentally offend you.. If I did, I'm sorry.

#10, if a postal person wouldn't wait then OP doesn't have to rush anyway. If it's a normal person then they could take a minute. Either way, not worth hurting yourself.
