Risk assessment make sure you take a photo
On my first day at RM I went out with a CWU rep and was told never to put yourself at risk trying to deliver mail.
I've fetched mail back when I had to climb over a dodgy garden to get to the letterbox because the f***ing massive truck took up all the driveway and was parked about five inches away from the door. I did it once, never again, the post went back. Once the van was moved and the front garden tidied I was happy to deliver.
I've fetched mail back for a house that had about twenty piles of dog s**t all over the path. A manager went out for a word the next day. It was moved. f**k that s**t, I'm not climbing over dog s**t to deliver letters to skanks. The manager told me I did the right thing.
Just two examples. There are many more.
