Harping back to my earlier comment regarding customers asking if you have anything for them next door as I have just delivered to the previous house without them "waiting and seeing"! Another brain dead customer today said "Anything for me"?

I walked past her and thrust her mail angrily into her hand with an annoyed look on my face!

I'm just getting used to my regular round at the moment, so I'm trying to work out what really annoys me... I think I'll have to say there's a property that has THE lowest wooden gate ever, and also has 2 steps up to the door and EVERY time I deliver there, the gate doesn't open enough and scrapes along the ground, so then I catch my leg on the side of it! If that doesn't get me, then the 2 steps do! :shock:

Would love to hear what things get to you!

Happy Wednesday people :cool


If they are the only things that annoy you then you're getting off lightly!

Not has strange has yours. But went to another office once and this house was on a council estate. The guy I was working with forgot to tell me they had a pet goose in thier garden. Had a shock when it ran at me from the side of the house :left:

Why is it 90% of customers still don't know how to use a PDA??

Why do I have to explain to each and every one of them exactly what they should do with it and where they should sign, only for them, to either 1. still don't understand, or 2. sign it, but not on the box in screen?

Why do one or two customers arrange a re-delivery and then are not in?

How many Postman experience this?

The customer comes to the door with the bloody dog in tow, normally an annoying small one. And then you can see it just about starting to leave the confines of the front door to start sniffing around you, and then the customer says "no rover, get in rover"

Why does the dog always have to follow the customer to the dog? I cannot stand dogs sniffing around me! And of course, if I took exception to this by moving it away with my foot they would soon complain!

Using a PDA isn't rocket science is it? And of course there's the ones that say "Have I got it the right way up"?

My issue is that the older folks on my rounds can't write on the PDA without resting their hand on the screen.

Why the hell RM didn't spend an extra 20p per PDA to get multi-touch screens is beyond me. I've demonstrated about 1000 times that you can only write when you're only touching one part of the screen, but the next time they're still clueless.

PRESSING HARDER DOESN'T WORK!!!!

I have found one way to get round that problem. I always take a pda without a pen so they have to use their finger. One problem with that though, you have to tell them not to use their nail but the skin of their finger. So you can't win. :arrrghhh

Yeah, and the other 50% that can actually use the PDAs turn it upside down looking for the pen.
