No way, you must have the softest walk in England, or you live on your own :hmmmm

Generally my PDA works fine. It's just those odd days when it plays up; bad weather being an example of those odd days.

I always recall the two-word motto I learned when I was a Boy Scout: "Be prepared." :Very Happy

My pedometer reckons I cleared 15 miles today! Heavy as f**k! I think I went to pretty much every house. Still managed to squeeze some lapsing out of us as well. My legs feel like they are going to fall off and some c*** in a some office somewhere will probably say I could have worked harder!!

Brutal day. Wore my new prescription RM trainers. My feet are ruined. Had to swap them out half way. Who tests these shoes. Certainly not a postie. Put with someone slow. Had to wait for 15 minutes twice on two loops. Long painful day.

I did the same the other week. Thought I would test the new shoes out. Managed about 2 loops before I had to change them. Heavy, Cumbersome and not appropriate for the hiking we do.

Bang on.

I'll wear the RM shoes in the depot and change in the van until the latest obsession dies down, then back to normal. Non RM "Trainers" are the only appropriate footwear for outdoor work in my experience.

You did, shocking today, then we were today no leaving loops, to take all mail out, clear the tracked & bring the rest back? What's the point of that for it to be chucked back in tomorrow? :arrrghhh Brought back 5 loops of mail.

very very heavy on flats today. Small packets too. 4.5 trays of mail on delivery on rural round. On average day take out 2.5 trays.

1.5 hours over finish time and didn't bring it back because It was a sunny day so didn't mind

Looks like a lot of peeps did the lapsing we should never have been given today and we all brought plenty back off our own duties! No heroics tomorrow, with shorter hours on Friday there's no hope of catching up without paid overtime... If you want it and if they will pay it.

This company is a shambles, mon far to quiet, tue to short a day to complete so either leave or book ot, wed, thurs, frid, sat same again, today I booked over an hour and left 2 bags, we need revision in our office as the duty's are ridiculously uneven, some people finish 1 hour early everyday, mainly full time, while others have to either leave or book ot, managers dont seem to care, more bothered about you missing 1 tracked scan out of 100s, and get this Coaching you on it, I think they want to make the job as hard as possible for the postmen so they will leave.

No disrespect to the YouTuber regarding his medical condition, but how do we know that he or his neighbor cleared away any obstructions in that pathway and stairway just for the sake of this video? And the other courier companies? Do we take this YouTuber's word for it?

Yep, a big sized one if he's expecting packages like medical supplies and the like. Anyway, in situations like this I always take photos to show the line manager. I'm wondering if the postie delivering to this guy's address did the same. It'll be interesting to see if the access to this guy's mail slot at the top of the stairs was initially blocked by tools, rubble, a dumpster... you know, the usual mess we posties find at or near a construction/renovation site. :arrrghhh
