    Angry Postman Prat!

    In the last 2 weeks, our road has got a new postman. Stupid twat broke my letter box flap by trying to stuff an A4 sized parcel through the hole after folding the ends in, old postman just either left it on the doorstep or knocked on my door.

    Anyways, I bodged the flap back on, and he did the same 2 days later, so my missus confronted him, to which he replied my letterbox flap was getting on a bit, so it broke due to ageing... ... so she said just leave it on the doorstep next time and slammed the door in front of his face!

    She followed this up with a call of complaint to RoyalMail, and they offered a 30 cheque as compensation for a replacement flap, no questions asked.... cheque arrived yesterday... so time to buy a new flap.

    /rant.

    You ordered a car-sized parcel for delivery by post.... what did you expect to happen?

    I never realised 30 would buy a new replacement flap. I thought at that money you'd only get a second hand flap.

    Good show by royal mail though! I'd have expected nothing from them. And I'm surprised a cheque made it in the post to be honest.

    To be fair, mine is the same. He has a very similar signature to me, which is handy!!!!

    Yes, the original guy was good. A knock on the door if parcel won't fit through the post, then either leave it on doorstep, or give it to neighbours if weather is crap. The new guy though, is not a local chap, sounded like a polish guy or similiar, no manners and no respect for peoples property.

    Jo stop your flapping , count yourself lucky you're even getting post, someone at work the other day was saying that they only get theirs once a week now, and even then if they dont, one of the people off the street goes and gets it for the whole street (which shouldn't be allowed - data protection, securit reasons etc) but thats the story.....

    That sounds like our post. we can spend weeks with no letters and then all of sudden.......one.
    I get the sence of pending doom when we get letters now, so use to not having them.

    Our postman is just about ok. he delivers what letters we get by ramming them in and bending them or leaving them half out so they get wet and then fall apart when you try and get them out of the letter box.
