I move out of the way of most of the owners when they're on their own too...the drooling, wild eyed benefit funded bastard mutts :speak to the hand


Zanussi and Electrolux garden furniture and you'd be describing my duty.

Don’t have my own round, but often get shafted with non drivers and slow pokes on heavy duties.
Does having to put up with the managers bollocks when cutting off count?

All letter boxes at the bottom of a door should be banned because of injury to a Postman/woman's back. Other countries have banned these letter boxes. The UK should follow suit. When out delivering most of the day, these letter boxes are an absolute pain literally. BAN BAN BAN

When you try a few neighbours with a parcel and finally find one at home and they say ... ooooh no sorry I don’t know them or I never see them ...

If you are going to try neighbours don't try more than two for any one item.

So far I've broken two wreaths attached to door knockers and have severed halfway through an electric cable that's threaded through a heavy metal letterbox that tries to take your fingers off at the best of times (it's running tree lights outside). :Applause

Not seen anything like in the picture yet but if I do, I bet it wouldn't last long either. :no no

Don't try them ring things, just does my nut in. "Just sign for it and put it through or just throw it over the gate." Err no. I knock and if they don't answer try next door then 739.

Some of them seem to sense you or have you on camera as soon as you're in range. Woman on my duty has one and she's often at the door before I've rounded the corner of her path. Or maybe she's just seen me from a window.

Either way, she's very disconcerting.

So those decorative door bows... You start by putting your bundle into you bag, with your free hand you slide the material of the ' ribbon' to one side and open the letter box just enough to post the oversized letters etc only to be met with great resistance from the inner flap caused by the high tensile catapult band of material now pulled extra taught against it by you pulling the outside material to one side.

I would sentence each homeowner who has one of these to a week of posting exclusively to other households with similar door decorations.

Doing DTN for ten minutes is the same amount of work as delivering letters for ten minutes :P

Return their mail and mark it as inaccessable! That'll teach them!

The people with locked gates who leave a note asking you to ring their mobile.

Not a chance pal - P739.

Oh and "no" I couldn't give a toss that it's a 20 mile trip for you to pick it up.
