I've noticed this too.

But it really will mean very little when the letters drop off a cliff due to coronavirus, and Royal Mail can use that excuse to push ahead with their plan to streamline us into just another parcel courier company.

When I pulled into the long driveway of a big houses the other day a woman ran out of the house swept her kid up into her arms ran back inside and shut the door behind her... I didn't take it personally, I'm sure she appreciates the efforts we're going to really!

Most of the people today have wished me all the best and to be careful. They have all been STUNNED that we have not been issued with hand sanitiser and wipes! I given some today by a lady who was genuinely concern for my welfare. Rico? Do you even care?

The public don't give a toss about us, the only thing they care about is their irrelevant parcels.

If you get your facts right soap and water are just as good as hand sinister. Just wash yours hands correctly not hard.

How do you wash your hands when out on a rural route, you have to use sanitizer.

And how do you do that on your rounds where there are no toilet facilities?

Ask someone if you can just nip and use their sink for a few moments and then dry your hands on their towel?

Can't imagine how hard it must be on a rural. I normally have plenty of opportunities to use a toilet and wash my hands. But now all the places I had before are closed due to the virus. I nearly s**t myself today

Yes have to say my rural customers as ever appreciate my efforts,and as expected guidance and concern from above sadly lacking,policies in place but will no doubt be ditched once the workforce becomes depleted,they will no doubt take the glory in continuing to get the mail delivered,by whatever pressure and bullying tactics that they are well known for,stay safe my friends

I’m sure there may be some like that but the vast majority of people I have spoken to this week (from a distance of course) have been very appreciative

I’ve noticed people are being friendly giving us a thank you etc. Still getting the odd few out in their garden coming up to you or opening the door saying ‘I’ll take that off you postie’ mainly the older generation who we are meant to be protecting!

I bet she had her Fleece Pulled up over her nose as well? :left: I don't think some people actually realise that we actually might have been given some guidance about Social Distancing .... I have to keep telling Old Buggers to stop walking down the garden path to collect the mail FFS! :cuppa
