A COUPLE are furious after a Co-op delivery driver shunted their bin down the road – and then left a note saying THEY should have said thank you.
Jamie Briggs, 35, and his partner Sally have had endless issues with Co-op delivery drivers near their Bromyard, Herefordshire, home.
One day, they put their bin out for collection – only for it to be shunted back into their doorway.
The pair were confused when they found it had not been emptied, so they complained.
Then, a note appeared on the bin, suggesting a Co-op driver had done them a favour, and they should be thankful.
Speaking of that day, Jamie told The Sun they had put the bin out, but, he said: "The bin was not collected.

"We complained and then a note appeared on it saying, ‘I TOOK THE TROUBLE TO GET YOUR BIN EMPTIED. DON’T BOTHER TO SAY THANK YOU!!!’
"It was weird because we did not know who had done it."
The note came after a string of events with Co-op delivery drivers, which Jamie says block his family in their home almost every day by parking outside the front door.
He says the lorry drivers park so close because they're trying to align their rear-end as close as possible to the goods entrance for the Co-Op.

Jamie has complained to the supermarket chain, as when the trucks selfishly park in front of his home, he can't get his baby daughter Lily's pram out the front door.
He said: "It’s our only exit and there’s no excuse because there is 23 foot between our front wall and the pavement across the road and these lorries are only eight and a half foot wide.
I have had to bang on the side of the lorries before now to get their attention so I can get out with Lily.
"I used to be able to squeeze myself down the side but with the pushchair there’s no chance."
Sally, 28, added: "I have had to bang on the side of the lorries before now to get their attention so I can get out with Lily."
Co-op has apologised to the young family, but Jamie says they were fobbed off with a £10 voucher and left fuming.
He says it's not every driver who blocks their front door, and some agree to move if they have, but others just tell the family to "wait in our house until they are finished.".
A spokesperson for Co-op, said: "We apologise for the inconvenience caused and are currently working with our delivery drivers to prevent the issue in the future.
