Had a thick moment today, posted a special letter without getting a signature or scanning it. I dare say it was a heavy day today and I had some mug 2 doors down asking if I have a parcel for her as I was posting the letters. My mind slipped and there it went through the door?

Any idea what kind of discipline I’m in for?
Managers weren’t happy with me saying they have to fail it, that’s it’s unacceptable and It’s going to have ‘repurcssions’?

They can’t use the ‘you were rushing around’ argument as I was having to use a trolley and went 5 minutes over time.

One person lost special in our office last year and he still working, so may be warning.

You fessed up which is always a good thing, it won't be too serious as long as you have a relatively clean record I wouldn't have thought. If you posted through the right door, it's not like you've lost it either.

No idea if this was the case or not but NEVER put them in bundles; some people do in my office and it drives me round the bend. Asking for what has happened here to happen.

Don’t worry mate. Everybody makes mistakes. That’s what makes us human.

I left one in a bag once overnight.. collegue found it the next day. I'm still here. We are only human.... it's not like you left it on the roof of the van.. it will be a ticking off at best.... we are only human

Make sure your rep is with you when you have to speak to management about it!

I did this once. Put it through the door with the P739 :d'oh!

Rang manager right away and he was fine about it, said we'll deal with it if anything came of it. Never heard another another thing about it.

Hope you have a similar result and try not to worry about it in the meantime as it's really not the end of the world.

I always put an elastic band around each SD item just as an additional reminder that I need to 'zap' it.

DOM's are more worried these days as its part of their bonus

Yes it’s a mistake,but nobody died,in the bigger picture of things failing deliveries etc,it’s not the end of the world,these things happen,take it on the chin depending on what if anything the boss says,hopefully he’ll make the point which you’re well aware of and leave it at that,I’m sure you can quote a few mistakes that others may have had,as long there’s consistency with the outcome
