There were loads of dogs on my old delivery roaming around, it was a slumhole council estate. Once got bitten right on the arse by one, reported it to management who gave me a letter to deliver to the customer next day! How about you do it yourself hero!

That just shows how simple minded these bosses are. You have a problem that is preventing you from delivering to a certain address. How do they let the customer know they wont be getting their mail until the problem is resolved............ They send you out with a letter to them, which you have to deliver.
And we thought it was only the yanks that couldn't grasp the concept of irony :d'oh!

There was a guy worked with us last christmas delivering to a tennement block when a dog runs down from the top floor and attaches itself to his ankle. He starts kicking it to get it away and the owner came downstairs and punched him square in the face, breaking his jaw.

The guy left not long after this happened, never found out what happened to the customer that assualted him but I'd imagine he'll still get his mail delivered.

When he 'attacked' you,and you were defending yourself you pulled your back out and will probably have to go sick for a couple of weeks.
The dog owner SAW IT ALL. :whistle

Royal Mail probably sent him a bunch of flowers and a book of first class stamps with a letter of apology for having one of their staff hurt the man's knuckles.

Postman kicked deaf dog then fought owner


By Gina Bebbington

A POSTMAN has been sentenced for kicking a dog and fighting with its owner.

Michael Crowley, of New Road, in Anderton, faces a curfew after being found guilty of assault by beating and causing unnecessary suffering to an animal.

The 33-year-old appeared at Vale Royal Magistrates' Court on Wednesday after the incident, which happened in December last year, and was convicted after an earlier trial.

Catherine Whincup, prosecuting, said: "The defendant attended an address to deliver mail when he seemed to turn and deliver a savage kick to the 14-year-old dog of Mr Andrew Town who was angry, confronted the defendant and was grabbed and punched repeatedly around his head."
He lost his temper and in the circumstances, although it doesn’t make it justifiable, it does make it easier to understand.
Karina Champion, defending

Ms Whincup said the dog was nearly deaf and slow to respond.

Crowley, a father-of-two, told police in interview that the animal was aggressive and growling at him so he kicked it in self defence.

He also told police that he hit Mr Town in self defence.

Karina Champion, defending, said Crowley was initially suspended by Royal Mail but later reinstated despite his conviction. He showed remorse for the incident from the outset.

"He notified his employers of the incident immediately after it happened and acknowledges that in relation to the assault that matters did become heated.

"He genuinely felt he was in some danger and accepts what he did was wrong.

"He said it was two people in the wrong place at the wrong time and has said he wishes he could turn back time."

She added: "This is not a man who is going to trouble these courts again.

"He lost his temper and in the circumstances, although it doesn't make it justifiable, it does make it easier to understand."

Crowley was given a three-month 8pm to 4.30am curfew for each of the charges, to run concurrently, and was ordered to pay costs of £455 and compensation of £50.

On one round I used to cover there was a dog which used to stick it's head out of the cat flap and try to nip you. Went there one day in th erain and totally forgot about the mutt. I stood too close and as the mail went through the box, so the head came out and... ouch!

Next day, I crept up the path quietly, put my leg against the cat flap to block it and rattled thge letter box. The dog came bounded along the hall and then THUMP :Very Happy - never did it again :dance

damn dogs!!

I have been bitten SEVEN times!!!! Each time the owners say "oh! my dog never bites"! Yeah right!, never bites you, you mean! Each time i have been told to deliver the letter, but each time i refused ('elf and safety, you know) and insisted the LM do it himself. last time the DOM went to deliver it ( in a crappy housing estate known as hypodermic alley), I was there and praying the damn dog would escape out the cat flap after him as it had me. But no such luck, the owner saw him coming and locked up the dog. But at least the cat flap has been sealed up ( we refused delivery for 2 weeks until they complied). Now he terrorises me from an upstairs window, but at least i know where he is now!

Another of our rounds has a "killer" cat - now that's scary.

It just creeps up behind you silently, and as you turn around to walk away from the door - there it is between you and the gate :shock:

And cats claws are bloomin' sharp
