As a teenager I knew everything....I'm still trying to figure out when I forgot it all.

Royal Mail - Bastards

For the last few weeks we've had a different postman and since then all our
mail has been shoved through the door in such a way that quite often
envelopes are torn and such like, Anyway recently it was my birthday and
when some of my cards were creased and all dog eared when they came through
the door I put a note on the window that read...

"Dear Postman, Please do not fold my letters, it made me sad to receive
ruined birthday cards. Thank You"

We left it there for a couple of days and then took it down again thinking
nothing of it.

Well, now I'm off work with my back the postman spotted me sitting in the
chair by the window this morning and knocked my door, He started shouting at
me about the letter saying I should get a bigger postbox, I pointed out that
the previous postman had, had no issues and I wasn't well enough to be
standing arguing with him....

(I'd just taken my diazepam and as anyone reading this who has had the
misfortune to have needed to take this particular medication will know It
not nice My body was screaming at me to go lie down and here was this idiot
shouting at me...)

HE reached past me grabbed the front door and starts shoving letters, that
weren't even addressed to me through the door "LOOK LOOK" he kept on saying,
I said look i'm not well I can't do this now...he shoved my parcels in my
hands grabbed his letters back and strode off down teh path glancing back
over his shoulder and and sneered "you should go to bed love"

I'd like to know if he'd have behaved the same if James had answered the
bloody door the fuckwit!

report it

thats fucking awefull

it would be good to know what he would have done if confronted with james.

keep calling (that is if your feeling up to it) and make sure they know and that they dont brush over it due to the strikes.

what a complete w*nker ! I'd have been tempted to report him to the police too ! how intimidating ! can't bl**dy go on like that!!!

Hotdog - if anyone else witnessed this, not only could the police do him for threatening behaviour, & since he was close enough, assault, but they'd be thrilled witless to do it as it constitutes a nifty package of report & detection. They'd rather arrest a shoplifter or a vandalous teen with a chance at a successful prosection than spend heaps of time on detecting other crime. Not lazy, just stuck with moronic performance indicators.

Essitam - Whilst I totally support the mail strike & its objectives, this bloke is clearly a tosser. Think you should also complain to the manager of your local sorting office about him - that's his direct line manager.

Just received a link to this post from Dhamaka with a request to as to wether I could do anything for you in regards to this dreadful behaviour.
I am a manger with Royal Mail. In the postmens defence I would like to say that the vast majority of them do really care for the people they perceive as there customers and time and time again I see instances where they will put themselves out considerably to help people in all sorts of situations.
That said what has happened to you is completly unacceptable.
I will drop an e-mail to Dhamaka that she can forward to you with a few details I would need. I am sure I can help instigate a marked improvement in the service Royal Mail appear NOT to be providing you with ...

Bah! Stupid postman. Kick ass and take names.

Essitam says:

Carpe - I completely agree with you,

Our previous postman was lovely, he took the time to greet us if we appeared while on his round and would often give us packages in teh street if he saw us out and knew it wouldn't fit through our mailbox, I know I can't expect this service from everyone and I didn't expect this man to go out of his way to please me but it wasn't as if i'd stuck a note on the door saying "DON'T BEND MY FUCKING LETTERS YOU STUPID MORON!"

I'd tried to be light hearted about it! I do understand that they do a hard job, hell i wouldn't want to be walking the streets at stupid o'clock in the morning and I get that most of the workers hadn't had aspirations of becoming a postal worker when they were growing up, but it is their job.

Fair enough if he took exception to the note on the door although if someone left me a note in silver glittery writing it would make me smile!!

I have received the message of D and I will forward you the details you've asked for!

Am with Hildegard on supporting the strike, and also think you (Essitam) are spot on with your comments .... I hope this particular postie gets what's due to him ... there is no excuse for such behaviour .... on a more personal note, hope you are feeling better, sounds like you are going through a tough time of it at the moment .... sending gentle hugs and lots of healing vibes ....

Essitam says:

Maggie - Thank you, a tough time indeed, it never rains but pours and all that but "everything will be fine" (thats my new mantra don't you know)

Stat - James was in teh bath this morning when the postie came a knocking unfortunately and they're striking for the next couple of days luckily for the postman in question as J is not happy!!

Grrrrr. That's awful. Hope he gets dealt with and that your back gets better soon.

I have just had a knock on the door from a lovely man who is the manager of our local sorting office wanted to speak to me.

He has apologized profusely for the behaviour of the postman yesterday, he has explained that although the man in question is striking today he will be dealt with accordingly once he is back in the office and will more than likely be taken off my "walk" (as he put it).

He apologized again and again and has given me his direct office number if I have any more problems.

It seems as per usual its not what you know but who you know that gets these things done. I can't thank Carpe enough for bringing it to our local offices attention and getting it dealt with so swiftly!

That is good to hear. And he even came to your house. Now that's personal treatment.

Wonderful, and very efficient. I'm pleased that this seems to have had a good resolution.

What a story ... but talk about getting results. I'm glad it worked out. How's your back?

paintist says:

that is good you can think about getting better and not the stupid postman......

5th Oct 2007, 11:34

Essitam says:

My back is feeling a lot better today, Thanks.

I'm a lot more mobile, I went for a walk this morning not too far but enough to stretch my legs and back and this time i wasn't in agony by the time i returned so I'd call that a result!!

I can tell when the pain killers are wearing off and I need another dose but its not nearly as painful, more a discomfort - I am hoping that it is getting better and not just the constant supply of drugs that's giving me the illusion of recovery - Time will tell, especially Monday when the Diazepam stops.....

I hope all those wankers that choose to go on strike lose their jobs, they think they can hold this Country to randsom, but it's time we stand fast as a nation and show these fucking idiots that they are insignificant individuals.
